I'm back...and introducing my new baby boy

Hello there scrapbookers! It's been quite a long while but I'm happy to say I've come back to land of blogging :) I had given up blogging during my pregnancy just because I didn't feel like it. After working with a computer all day long, the very last thing I wanted to do in the evenings was update my blog or spend any amount of time online. Well now that my baby boy is here, I am on a one year maternity leave so I have a little more time for these things (sorta, kinda... I think... do you really have more time when there's a new baby around??).

Here is a couple of layouts that I did last fall (for My Creative Scrapbook) using Fancy Pants Happy Together papers with my little boy's ultrasound pictures.

Me at 34 weeks pregnant.


Our first family of four photograph taken the day my baby boy was born. Hudson James arrived by c-section, 10:15 am on February 10, 2011, weighting in at ..... are you ready for this....... 11 pounds, 1 ounce. Yes, over ELEVEN POUNDS!! I have to say that was quite a shock considering Larissa only weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces when she was born. I suppose giving into my pregnancy cravings of chocolate milk and an entire cantaloupe everyday contributed to growing a very big boy!

Here are a few shots of Hudson at six days old. I haven't scrapbooked them yet just in case you are wondering, but I have scrapbooked a few other photos that you will see in a couple of days.





I am happy to be back into scrapbooking (and blogging) so expect lots of posts from me. There'll be new work to post in a few days and lots of posting of the pages I did over the winter and didn't get around to posting before this.
