For the last few years, I've been putting all of our favorite photos in an annual book. It started out just with trip photos (2009, 2010, 2011), morphed into more of a whole life recap including pregnancy shots, parties, etc. (2012). While I haven't quite gotten around to putting together a 2013 version, I did finish Agatha's first year baby book which is a pretty good recap of our year too.
I won't bore you with a look at every page (its 100 pages long) but it's made up of lots of photos, a letter to her about how excited we were to finally meet her, a highlight page per month and a "stats" page for her first year.
Maybe because I was so fanatical about keeping up with it all year or I realized it's way harder to put together than I imagined but I'm so happy to have this done. It makes me feel very organized even though I'm so far from it!
I haven't been keep up with as many photos or notes for her second year of life so we will be back to a consolidated photobook for all of us in 2014.
