not dead, news, and a present for you

So, not that many people noticed my absence (that's what I get for being an intermittent blogger), but I'm back! And not dead! And decidedly less pregnant!

Meet sweet baby Jackson, born Monday, April 27 at 5:59pm. He's pretty cute. I think we'll keep him.

AND! I have a gift for you, which I meant to share months ago but didn't get around to until now. I was hunting around the internet for a printable baby book (preferably free, because, y'know... free). But I didn't really love any of the options I found. So I decided to make my own. And then I figured, with all that effort put into it, why should I be the only one who gets to enjoy it?

Click to view and download, and please tell me if you have trouble: Woodland Boy Baby Book.

I made it using PicMonkey and this user's fabulous digital scrapbook pack "In The Woods." (Don't worry, according to her terms of use, it's okay to share projects created with her stuff.) And I guess it could work for a baby girl too, if you don't mind a lot of blues and greens. I inserted the pages into sheet protectors and used a 3-ring binder (which I plan on cute-i-fying at some point).

The thing I love about printables for things like this is you can pick and choose which pages you want. I did design it so that, if all the pages are used in the order given, opposing pages will match or coordinate, but it's all from the same scrapbook pack, so it all coordinates, really. So if you rearrange things, it won't make much difference in aesthetics.

So if you or anyone you know is in the market for a free baby book, please share!
