Thanks so much! Yeah, we are pretty proud of her Smile
I showed her the page last night and she said 'I can't believe I looked like that only 8 months ago!!' She really liked the page.

Kelly~wow! Your mom does look great! I wish i had that kind of will power!

OK...here's my entry. (the b/w pic is not a good print of that picture, i am having it professionally printed but printed one off to give the affect i was going for so i could post this by the deadline. Lol this is the pic how it's supposed to look

Eli was born with a cleft lip and palate (obviously! Lol I miss his face soooo much. That is the face i fell in love with , that is the first face i saw. He was 'normal' to me. Other babies looked funny. lol I really struggled the first days after his surgery, he looked like a completely different baby. But his same personality came through when he started feeling better. It was like falling in love with him all over again! It's so bittersweet that that he has changed so much. On the one hand i loved him how he was, he was my sweet baby boy who was perfect. But now, i still love him how he is and he is still my sweet baby boy who is perfect, but i will never be able to see that face of his again...and his wide smile... Smile Wow I wrote a novel! sorry!

the journaling says " Wow! Look at the difference! I miss your face then, but i wouldn't trade it for anything now! I love you baby boy. No matter what!. love, your Momma"

This is my first 2-page lo. My then & now theme is the progression of Kaylee's growth through ultrasounds. The first one, she looks like a jelly bean - the second one she's doing a headstand, and the the last one is her profile. They were done at about 7, 13, and 17 weeks, and I am just in awe at the growth! The second page is journaling about each ultrasound, and what dh and I were thinking.

Man, there are some FANTASTIC pages here! I love the work everyone has done! I feel like my page pales in comparison ... and it didn't turn out quite as I envisioned in my head. Oh, well, it's done. Wink
