My sweet BABY girl

This is my 365 Cards Day 137: I'm in a bind submission, and my Allsorts Challenge week 16 submission - a BABY book. These pics are so so soooo sweet, and bring back so many memories. I created this book while pregnant since we knew she was a girl and we didn't tell the family I had this book hidden under a lot of clothes and stuff in a bin - now, it's a beautiful testament to her first month of life.

Then 2 weeks before my due date I spent hourzzzzz making her birth announcements, with just enough space to add the picture when she finally was born. Here they are:

I asked God for a flower,
He gave me a garden.

I asked God for a tree,
He gave me a forest.

I asked God for a river,
He gave me an ocean.

I asked God for a child,
He gave me 'YOU.'
