Did you keep up with your child's baby book?

I have 2 kids (not that far apart) and I realized tonight that I did a poor job keeping up with their baby book. I did do a better job with the older one's book, but still not something I stuck with for very long. So, how did you or are you doing with your child(ren)'s baby book?

  • my kids are 16 months apart. my dd just turned 6 months. i totally forgot about them until now lol. i think the last time i filled both them out was when she was 4 months. i do that every now and then, i'll catch up after a couple of months of not filling it out

  • i will answer this one honestly from a grandma..........my first child, i did very well.......most of the pages are done...and even his school book is mostly done............my second one i purchased the book and put all the stuff between the pages but never filled it out............and my third one; i didnt even buy one; all her stuff is in a shoe box...........LOL!

    the best thing that i found worked well for me was just jotting down the cute things they did and said and all the milestones on my wall calendar boxes that hung in the kitchen (it was always right there and convenient; i just kept a pen close by) and i did save those for about 6 years until my youngest one was 2, so i do have a record of what they did ( i still have them and it is awesome to look back on and remember)..............6 years for my first one, 4 years for my second and 2 years for my baby girl! my kids are now 25, 23, and 21!

  • I did it weekly. I'm not planning on having anymore kids, one is plenty so I made sure I wrote EVERYTHING down.
