Today, I'm going to show you some of my favorite spreads out of Noah's art journals. Both Riley and Avery ended up with six journals over five years, but somehow Noah only has five. Poor middle child, I guess, but to make up for it, I feel like I did some of my best work in Noah's books.
While Riley has a separate journal that followed his pregnancy (I just looked, and I don't have that album up on Flickr- I'll have to shoot some photos and add that, for those of you who haven't seen it before), Noah's and Avery's pregnancies are part of these art journals.
The above page was from Noah's journal, about finding out we'd be having another boy.
Then here's the spread about his birth...
I've always loved the above spread- he was a little colicky in the beginning, except when I had him in his Moby wrap.
This one's about starting to see little bits of his personality coming out.
Comparing photos of Noah and Riley.
Six months old!
This is about his lovey, a giraffe named Jelly.
One year old!
He loved playing with shapes and designs (he still does!).
Our cat Ashley took a liking to sleeping on Noah's pillow.
First day of preschool...
Three years old!
Noah and his multiple collections...
Learning to swim...
He was such a shy little boy- he didn't talk to any grown-ups for almost a year (except for family).
Learning to whistle...
And finally, his fifth birthday!
If you'd like to see more spreads from these journals, you can see them here. Stay tuned, and I'll show you my favorite spreads from Avery's journals next time!
