A Year of Firsts

Dear Lucas,
Your Mommy did not do a very good job of keeping up with your baby book. I looked long and hard for just the right book, found it and maybe filled out a page or two. I have to be honest… learning how to be a good Mommy to you has been the hardest yet most rewarding job I’ve ever had and keeping up with your baby book was not something I could ever remember to do. But I’m going to make it up to you with this little piece of virtual space I’ve created. Some of which will be your online baby book. I promise to share with you all of your first milestones, our adventures, our ups and downs and all the memories we make together. I want you to have a place to read about all the things you’re too young to remember. How cool is your Momma now?!

Mommy

    1. Thanks! There are no missing pictures, its videos and you have to go to my actual website to view them. They do not come through via the email newsletter. Need to figure out a better system for that.
