Week 5 Full Spread.
Week 5 Left Side. Lincoln's birthday was on Monday, so this entire side is about that. How does the picture of him in his spiderman costume relate, you ask? Why, because that's what he wore to the babysitter's on his birthday. I blogged about his cake here, if you're curious.
Week 5 Right Side. My birthday was the following Sunday, and Tyler and I went out to dinner on Friday. And since I was looking forward to that all week long, it got quite a bit of space in my spread. I might replace that green glitter filler card; it looks kind of out of place this week.
Week 6 Full Spread.
Week 6 Left Side. I was pretty thrilled about my birthday cake, which you can read more about here. Lincoln was sick Sunday night and Monday morning Mason crawled into bed with him to try to give him his sippy cup. Adorbs. And I'm not sure you can tell, but the selfie was an attempt to take a picture of my eyes when they were dilated.
Week 6 Right Side. Journaling and pictures. Cute kids, right? Mason started walking this week! Not just 3 steps, he switched from predominantly crawling to predominantly walking in about a day. And how funny is Lincoln in Mason's high-chair? We don't even use the tray for Mason any more, but Lincoln wanted to eat dinner there. A little jealous of the baby, perhaps?
Week 7 Full Spread.
Week 7 Left Side. Isn't that sunset amazing? The picture doesn't really do it justice. And I was inspired by Catherine Davis's silhouette card which she made for the Queen's diamond jubilee last year to make one to mention the Pope announcing his retirement. We aren't Catholic, but it's still pretty big news. Feel free to grab it if you'd like to use it as well.

Week 7 Right Side. I saw this idea to use ribbon as a pull-out tab, and decided to use that to include Grandma Dewitt's obituary. You can see below how it pulls out and opens. I just printed the obituary and folded it, then glued it to the pink card. And those are grapes as the wheels on Lincoln's apple cars, not olives. They look a little questionable, but they were a huge hit. I blogged about my charm bracelet this week, so I decided to include it as well.
Week 8 Full Spread.
Week 8 Left Side. I finally ordered some Seafoam cardstock, and thought it was perfect for the spread this week.
Week 8 Right Side. I texted that picture to Tyler and he posted it on facebook with that caption. I loved it, so I did a screen grab and printed it out to caption the picture in the album. It's also notable that Mason has learned to climb onto the couch.
