do you keep a baby book or journal?

I have journal I write all the kids stuff in as well as baby books, but these kids say sooo many cute things that I forger to write it down and I have a really bad memory!!! My son just said something cute today and I'm trying to remember it exactly... that how horrible my memory is. Is there any mom who is on top of baby books etc and has suggestions? I have two boys and I'm pregnant again.

  • I did a baby book and i have a small box with things in it, my pregnancy test, stuff from the baby shower, his hospital bracelet ect.. I like the box more that i do the book the book is picture album and a journal type thing. I was good a keeping up with it the first year but im not too creative so the inside looks like crap. haha. I am pregnant again and this time i am thinking about just doing a memory box this time.

  • Nah. I wanted to, but then I realized my memories were more important than some pieces of paper. I still update it on birthdays, but that's about it...
