we love our girl

The other day I made a promise to myself that I would start scrapbooking Elsie pictures when I get back from our trip to New England. I realized that I know I'll be so happy and into it once I just get started. I decided to make a list with Aaron of all the things we love about Elsie and want to remember about her as a baby. We had a blast coming up with ideas and talking about how cute she is and how she makes us laugh. I'm really excited to get started on the scrapbook. The only problem is I haven't printed out many pictures since she was born since I have them all on the computer. I have a feeling it's going to get kind of expensive. I guess I'll have to be a little pickier than I am right now when picking out my favorites. I thought I'd post a few fun ones that we've taken recently.

Elsie was loving be on Aaron's shoulders. It's so fun to be able to try new things with her now that she's getting older and stronger.

This is one of her favorite toys. She loves taking the rings off the base and laughs so hard when we try dropping the rings onto the base. I guess she thinks it's funny when we miss.

Elsie loves to grab at everything now!! If it is even close to being in her reach, she'll go for it. Here she's trying to grab the camera while I was taking pictures.

Grandpa and Grandma Wise are up visiting this weekend. Yesterday while she was watching Teletubbies, she got to lay on Grandpa while he rubbed her feet. Now, tell me she's not spoiled! Too cute!

I love the pictures of Elsie. I can't wait to see her again and see what her personality is like. She's adorable!

What a cute girl! Have you ever tried sending pictures to Costco for printing? It's pretty slick - you can load your pics to their website and then pick them up an hour later at your local store. Plus, it's Costco, so the price is good...

I thought I really wanted to be a scrapbooker too until I bought all the supplies, printed all the pictures and started getting into it. Then I discovered the joy and ease of mypublisher.com (I sound like a commerical...) But seriously, its so easy to set up your pics and add text, they go on sale twice a year for 50% off and your pics are in a book and done. Jon and I plan on making a yearly one with all our favorite pics of the year. I'm not very creative though either so its perfect for me. Just thought I would throw that out there for ya!
Elsie is such a cutie!

I've started doing that too, Kacey! It is way easier, though you are a talented scrapbooker Kim. You should scrapbook an album for Elsie!
