Part of me wants time to stop so that I can cuddle a two month old forever. The other part of me can't wait to get to know E as a 6 month old, a one year old, a toddler, during her school years, etc.
Watching her clothes get snug is a definite reality check that she's growing. I'm trying to capture photos and video of it all, but there's always an angle or an expression that is fleeting but unique. So, as much as I try to keep a camera at arm's length, some moments will just be forgotten.
When I got contacted by mymemories.com to try out their digital scrapbook software, I thought it would be a great way to organize and capture these early days. Plus, they're offering a free copy for one of our readers (keep reading for more details on how to enter into the giveaway).
Here is a quick tutorial on how the program works. In addition to this, there are a lot of videos online that show you other tips and tricks.
Knowing myself, I could definitely spend hours and hours making scrapbooks. I decided to start off with one of the scrapbooking templates that come with the software to get to know the program and for the immediate gratification.
Here are some of the scrapbook pages I put together to capture E wearing some of the knits that I made while pregnant.
The two professional shots of E were taken by a local newborn photographer, Sara McConnell (click on link for more shots of E at around 2.5 weeks).
I can't wait to keep playing with the program. It includes music and video options, which I'm really excited about.
So - now the cool part: A GIVEAWAY! Mymemories.com is giving away a free copy of the digital scrapbooking software for one of our readers.
