I did find some time this week to do a 28-week ultrasound page for Baby 2. I searched for ideas online and kept coming across the idea of including a silhouette of a pregnant woman. I ended up taking a photo of myself from when I was 28 weeks pregnant, enlarging and printing it, then cutting the outline from a piece of black paper. I was pleased with the result.
I tried to use darker colors on this page to complement the black and white ultrasound pictures. I did want a bit of "girly" colors in there, so I chose a dark purple. I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge on my Cricut for the letters and embellishments.
The writing on this page says, "02/24/11 - We got to see your beautiful face today. You liked to keep you arms by your face, and you were very active. You actually smiled at one point, and they captured it on film. Precious! You measured at 2 pounds 8 oz. That's the 50th percentile."
The wording on her 8 month page says, "You have to be walked to sleep. You know Monkey's name and attack him on command. You let go and hold objects while standing. You crawl with your belly off the floor. You carry Bluebeary in your mouth as you crawl."
