Treasury of Keepsakes

The theme for my photography project this week is "Books." BTW, this isn't a reference to any ethnic groups. Quite honestly, I initially had a lukewarm response to the theme, but I decided to embrace it and try to put together some creative and/or meaningful shots.

This photo includes Kami's keepsake book. It contains facts, notes, and photos from her first five years. Well, technically just one year....since we forgot to fill in the rest of the pages. You see, sometimes the best of intentions get overwhelmed with life....diaper changes, midnight feedings, projectile vomiting, slips and falls, high pitched screaming...well, you get the picture. We were so busy living life with a new baby, we forgot to fully document life with a new baby. Although the book isn't completely filled out, our memories are full of fun times!

The pillow in the photo is a "Certificate of Birth" pillow, which listed her birth weight, length, etc. Kami still uses the pillow to this day. It's her favorite pillow and she even travels with it. Some day, I'm sure she'll let her own daughter borrow it....maybe....
