Grateful for her


Hello again, everyone, and Happy Passover/Easter! We enjoyed the seders with our families and little E got a lot of love and attention from all of her grandparents. We're a bit concerned that she'll now expect song-and-dance routines for hours on end from us:)

I'm a few days into April here, and our theme this month at Write. Click. Scrapbook. is "thankful." When I thought about what I'm grateful for, the first thing that came to mind is my little girl. I put together this layout using a Studio Calico kit:

(Please excuse the photo. I've been meaning to rephotograph this for weeks, but life has gotten away from me! Luckily I'm off for Passover this week and hope to get a semblance of order.)


The journaling reads: 2 years of infertility treatments. 8 Clomid cycles. 1 IUI procedure. 14 long days of waiting for the result. 9 months of pregnancy (well, 9.5). 11 hours of labor. 45 minutes of pushing. And you? You were worth every second.

I love this layout. When I was trying to have a baby, I imagined creating a layout like this one day to document the waiting, and I can't believe that day is here. It was so, so hard. But so completely worth it.

What are YOU thankful for today? Also, check out the WCS gallery right here for more inspiration.

  6. I love this layout - isn't that funny how we have some "special" layouts we preplan - I remember doing the same before Jonah was born - I think it's one of the things that makes scrapbooking so special. And the photo looks great - my new tactic is posting pics from my camera phone - just saves a step...hey anything that works right?
