what a great way to sum up a few months--it will be fun for her to look back on when she's older.

Wow you do keep track of everything! I never did a baby book with my first, this makes me realize I need to with this baby! He's 7 and I remember none of that stuff, except the major milestones. Bad mama. :/ Can't wait for the pics, she's the cutest!
