i'm a mom, but i did something my dh absolutely loved on his first father's day. ds's b-day is in june, so father's day is right before his birthday. anyway, i made a scrapbook called something like "dad and me: our first year" and put in pictures of the two of them, with little captions from the baby's point of view (i know, it sounds kind of dumb, but it was great). i organized each page by theme and did 4 or 5 pages. the first was waiting for the baby (the pregnancy), the second was the birth, the third was coming home, the 4th was special occasions (holiday, etc) and the 5th was them playing together throughout the year.
i am the world's most uncrafty person, so if i can do it, so can you
and by the way, my dd is 8 months too.
damn, i should do another one this year, now that dd is here.
