When you bring your baby home, you have the best of intentions to document every little milestone. The big problem with that logic is that you have just brought your baby home. Newborns have a knack for sucking all of that lovely scrap booking energy right out of your body.
Some of the most important information I’m sure you’ll want to keep is your little one’s progress as documented from his/her pedi visits. That stuff is gold to new parents, right?
Don’t tell yourself you’ll do it later. You won’t. Don’t put it in a special pile in a special place and tell yourself you’ll just spend a weekend assembling it all at once. You won’t.
The only way you’re going to keepsake this whole mess of memories is to walk straight through the door, fresh home from the doctor’s office, straight to your baby book and enter Baby’s progress right then and there. It takes just a couple of minutes to do it, and over time you’ll have documented all the juicy medical stuff that your teenager will be embarrassed about when you show his prom date.
