Keeping Track of Memories & Milestones

Back in January I wrote about my new datebook for this year. I still really enjoy it, but I have to admit... the months of March and April don't have much written in them :) No To-Do lists, certainly not menu plans, and well, the datebook got put on the back burner during those months. I knew exactly what I was doing every day - feeding and changing Susannah and taking naps :)

Now that it has come back out, I am certainly enjoying using it again. And I found yet another use for it! As Susannah does things or I do things with Susannah that I want to remember for her baby book or scrapbook, I simply write it down on that day's page! For instance, today she took her first ride in the stroller. I'm going to write that down along with how she liked it. Yesterday I wrote down her stats from the Dr's appointment.

This will be really handy for when I do get around to filling in her baby book, and I know she will enjoy the memories when she's older, too.

That's a great idea!

It really does come in handy - I'm currently holding tight to two days from last week where my bug cut two teeth & I need to put that in her baby book. Mental notes don't hold as strongly as they used too! lol!

That's a great idea! I keep my daughter's baby book out on her dresser so I usually remember to fill things in, but I would hate to forget a milestone!

Good for you! I didn't write things down much at all, except for my blog. If it's not on my blog, then, it's lost! I know you'll do better than that.
