alex's life book

  • In early 2006, I began creating a life book for my daughter, Alex. Click here for links to articles describing my experience.
  • And for those of you who are more digitally inclined, in late 2006, I recreated key pages of Alex's lifebook for an article I wrote for AlphaMom, using Scrapblog.

    You can see the final digital result (and leave comments, if you'd like!) here.

So, what your saying is that Miss Alex has two suitors...so far!

I love that pic of her, good grief, could she *be* any cuter?

Also I was thinking of you today when I read about the tanker exploding off your left coast there. I don't remember how close you are to the coast so I'm wondering if you were able to actually hear the blast it or if you just heard about it?

Happy Friday!


Oh, come on. I worked the Baby Room of daycare for almost six years, and the most blocks I ever got a child to stack (all by himself) was Five. Majority of kids, doing at least three was good when they got promoted at 16 months.
If she stacked all Nine by herself, you might as well enroll her in Harvard as soon as she is out of diapers.
Or a modeling agency. She has the smile instincts going pretty well.
We'll miss you, but expect some lovely pictures for Petipak when you get back.


MrsDoF --

I don't know that she's ready for Harvard, but indeed, she did stack those blocks by herself. Her record is 10.



Beauty And Brains.
Strap on your safety belts, Karen and Marcus, cuz you're in for quite a parenting ride.
Of course, you know that already, having gotten a good start the last year and all...

I truly believe that Alex is the most photogenic child I have ever seen.

I love that she is rubbing her hands with glee. How much of a mommy am I that after looking at that picture one of my first thoughts was "I hope Alex doesn't lose that sippy-cup valve, they can be a bitch to find". 3 years ago I would have had no idea what that was.


Oh those two are sooo cute!! Alex looks *almost* like she's rubbing her hands together and thinking, "Mwuuuuwaaahhahahahaha."


That daughter of yours just makes me smile so much the top of my head nearly falls off. Sooooooo cute.

I LOVE how she's rubbing her hands together in glee! Makes her look positively evil! Has to be one of my favorite pictures of her. :)


You know, I only read your blog for the cute pictures. Would you try to work on that a little harder please? I mean, jeez, really? ;-)

She looks so pleased with herself. I LOVE it.
