How have you organized your baby's scrapbooks? I have tons of pictures but don't know how to get started.

Thanks for all of the help. I'm definetely going to do in chronoligically. I like the idea of having one for each year of their life. I totally take tons of pictures and would have no problem filling up a book!!

I agree with Jona...I organize my scrapbooks in chronalogical order. Something else I do too is I made a scrapbook for each year of my child's life. (because I have so many pictures of him!) So I have a book just dedicated to his first year of life, then my second book starts with his 2nd birthday and so on....I am now on my fifth book! Imagine 13 more books to make til he is 18!!!!

I have heard that it is best to begin with the most recent occasion since it is freshest in your memory. I have seperate scrapbooks for bigger occasions such as family vacations. I have recently switched to using online services such as shutterfly.com and making beautiful hardcover books.

Mine are all in chronological order. Although I have a friend who has her albums in chronological order as well as separate scrapbooks in the following themes for each of her children: Sports; Christmas; School; Vacations

When you scrapbook they say your supposed to do it in chronalogical order. That is how our minds see it and it makes it easier. I can look at a picture of my kids when they were babies and picture it in my head and helps me with the day, time and place and their age. Does that make sense? I have tried other ways but this works best for me. Good Luck ~ Jona
