What is the best way to put together years of handwritten and typed letters along with photos for my son that can be added to and later given as a gift?

I started writing to my son daily when he was maybe a week old. For the first year or so, I wrote on typing paper. I changed that to writing in a tablet. With arthritis, writing as long as I was got harder so I took to typing him emails then every couple days which is what I do now. Along with those letters, some days have a photo to go with.
I want to be able to put it all together so it looks good and flows. I want to keep the handwritten letters because they mean so much. I probably can't go back and type that full year over. The tablet though may have back and front pages so just ripping them out may not work. Then there are the emails that I can't go back and rewrite as I sometimes would like. In total there is maybe two years of writing total (he's two and a half). How do I put it all together in a way that makes sense, that I can continue to keep up with and later give to him? I really just want to avoid putting everything in a folder/box/album and putting an explanation for why some aren't handwritten.
