Avery's First Year Mini Album

I wanted to make a first year mini album to showcase each month of my sons first year and then display it at his first birthday party for friends and family to see.  Unfortunately (or fortunately..considering there were some pretty rowdy kids there and it probably would have gotten ruined had I had it out on display) I didn't get it finished in time.  Anyway, I finally got it finished...and am planning to make copies of it for a few family members. But here it is. 

I fuzzed out the information on the first page for safety purposes. In this day and age you cant be too careful about what you put on the world wide web. Here is the page for his birth.
I had enough room to do a page for each month, holidays and a few random pages.  This is a random page.  It is of my son at a few weeks old.  Doesn't he look so cute in his little frog hat?
Here is Avery at one month.  He's holding up his finger saying "Buckeyes are #1"
Two months old.
Three months old.

And a close up of Avery with the bear.
Avery's first 4th of July.
Four months.  Doesn't he look so sweet?
The banner the bee is holding originally said something like "busy as a bee"  but that didn't work for my page.  So, I paper pieced a new banner over top of it.
Five months.
Six months.
A close up of my cool dude.
Avery's first Halloween.
He makes such an adorable dragon!

Eleven months.  You can see this page in progress on a previous woyww post.
Avery's first Easter.
And his first birthday party.
Close up of his cake face.  Does anyone else believe it's bad luck to cut hair before a first birthday?  I think we got his hair cut the very next day.
Well, I hope you enjoyed taking a look through my sons first year mini album.
