No, this isn't like my documentation posts of 2008!
I'm wondering what others do to document the lives of their children and family. I read a lot of blogs, so of course that is one way that I do help document. But, this blog isn't all about Maddy and Libby so while it will serve as a way for me to remember the daily happenings, it will also include a mix of running, the dogs, and whatever nonsense was on my mind that particular day.
I do have a baby book for each of my daughters and a slew of photos, but most are still on the computer, besides a few small photo albums. I keep a notebook on my nightstand that I try to write in every few days, or every few weeks with updates, funny stories, or new developments. I also started a blog just for them, but I realized that it's been over a year since I've updated it.
I'm not a scrapbooker, so I don't really think I'll get started on a new hobby.
I am considering doing photo books for each year of their life so I can include photos and some text to capture the highlights. I just don't want to look back in 5 years and realize that I can't remember when they crawled, or when they cut their 1st tooth, or that I can't find my favorite photos of them when they were two months old. As any Mom knows, it's hard enough to remember the happenings of one child, but when you throw two into the mix, it's easy to get the specifics confused.
Any good recommendations on websites for photo books, or any other neat services out there that you are using? Any other neat ways that you document?
