For the first year of his life we were honored to help raise him alongside my daughter, Kass. I am not saying it was easy or that our life wasn't hectic or that there weren't days that I was thankful not to have my own toddler while in my 40's. I am saying that we got to share some really precious moments that not all grandparents have the honor of having.
Since they lived with us, I have tons of fabulous pictures of Chase and Kass. I take deep pleasure in creating the scrapbook pages will go into their album.
There are only a few of the pages I have created for their album that have journaling written by me. Those few pages are from my perspective and meant to be seen that way. Most of the pages for that album are void of journaling, although there is a space for it. This empty space is meant to give Kass the opportunity to tell their story, because they have a story. A story that doesn't always include me. It has taken Scott & I awhile to come to terms with that and to be able to let her be a Mom in her own right. She is a darn good Mom, too!
The fun photos in "Me & Mom" were taken last Easter at my sister's house. It was Chase's first Easter and he had a grand time being the center of attention. Doesn't he looking super cute whispering into Kass' ear? Just like he had something funny to say even though he didn't talk then.

As I proof read this post I realized that I should use this post as journaling for my own scrapbook.
