Throwback Thursday: my bundle of joy

Janice of This is a Miracle have initiated a theme for every Thursday called Throwback Thursday where she posts old photos of her sons in her blog. Her idea is so brilliant, so I have asked her whether if I could join her. She is so kind to let me and here is my first post for the theme.

Yassin’s Book
I’ve practically have compiled Yassin’s development from birth to 12 months
in a book. I’ve printed it out and binded it myself. I have photos of his ultrascan images, hands and foots prints, first doodlings, first shoes, first toy cars and many more.

Yassin’s favourite book!
This is Yassin’s very first book – My Kitty by Lamaze

The experience of having a baby was indescribable. From the beginning Yassin was his own little person and I didn’t know him. What I didn’t realize then, but have come to understand now, as his mother I have unparalleled access to him and have a chance to get to know him better.

This is an incredible journey and I love being his mom Emila.

    your scarpbook is so neat! he’ll thank you when you show it to him when he’s older! you’re a great mom!

  2. Glad to see your first post up. I came by just now but it was still not loaded. How cool to be able to post some old picture of the boy right? All newborn seemed to have the same look huh. You are a great mommy to keep all of his developments in a book. What about those after 12 mths old? hehe ;p

    I’ve got the 2 boy’s newborn foot prints made into mold. It was really costly. Zac’s cost S$169. Amos one cost S$209.

    Cant wait to see your younger days Yassin next week 🙂
