Bunnies and turtles

I started this Round Robin set with the turtle and thought it would stay black and white but it took a colorful turn. Linda4atc added the bunny and Tandy finished it with the background and she also colored in my turtle. Love how it turned out.

Randomness:
  • I found Celebrities read mean Tweets videos on Jimmy Kimmel's YouTube channel. It's freaking hilarious. :)
  • Grandma was visiting for a while and we took her home on Saturday. Baby boy came along and saw all his second cousins. 
  • Baby boy is taking his first steps. It's so weird. We don't even have to coach him. He just randomly gets up or lets go and walks 5 steps.
  • I've been drinking ginger and turmeric tea. It's supposed to be helping with weight loss. We shell see. It's only my 3rd day today.
  • I started yoga again after I took a break for about 2 months. My hips are hurting again. They've been aching since I've given birth.
  • Baby boy is a biter. I have bruises on my arms and even on my leg to prove it. :)

Black & White

Some miscellaneous black and white ATCs. I've done more but I showed them in a themed post. These don't really have a theme of their own and I probably won't be doing any friends for them so here they are. :)

Don't know if I mentioned before but I take a crazy amount of baby photos. I'm not kidding when I say there are between 300 - 500 photos a month. I make photo books instead of printing them and putting them in an album. Needless to say it's insane to select a certain number of photos.

My first thought was to put baby's first year in one photo book which has 50 pages and you can get from 1-10 photos per page. Cramming 10 photos on a page makes them pretty small so I opted for around 4-6 photos per page. I quickly realized a year worth of photos won't fit in just one book so I naively thought I'd put 6 months in one book. No, that wouldn't fit all my photos either so I crammed 3 months into 1 photo book. I refuse to make a book for each month. 

I've already made 2 books for the first 6 months but these days I've been slaving over the last 6 months since it was baby's birthday at the beginning of the month. Plus my mom has a birthday coming up and I'm making one for her as well.

I don't know how long it took me to select photos but it's been days. I do know though that it takes me 2 hours to put all photos in one book and edit everything. But I've done it while the baby was sleeping. I can't wait to get the books in my hands.
This happened because it was raining and I couldn't find the plastic thingy that goes over the stroller. Baby was helpful and held the umbrela so the wind wouldn't blow it away. :)
