I wish I could remember who told me they did this, but I’ve been doing this since my baby was born. A great way to keep track of your baby’s milestones and even the little events is to write everything down on a calendar. I actually made the calendar through Walmart’s online photo section. I got to use our own pictures and could even insert a picture on the day of family member’s birthdays or anniversaries. So it helps me remember special days too. 🙂 But a regular calendar is fine too.
I write down the big things like when she first smiled and first slept through the night and when she got her 2 month shots and her first time camping, etc. But I also write down the fun things like how she loves to talk and how she loves to suck on her fist and how she doesn’t love being swaddled even though it’s the only way she’ll sleep. I think they’ll be fun memories for her when she grows up and can see what type of baby she was.
It’s never too late to start!
I love digital scrapbooking and taking pictures too so there will definitely be some more memories there. My mother-in-law started a journal for her children when they were born which is another great idea. I love the calendar because it’s easy just to jot down a few things here and there and only takes a minute or two.
