I really like this idea...could do it and put it with their baby books and give to them when they are older.

I have already started a journal for my son. I do not write in it everyday, but it already has some of these ideas in it. He will know more than any baby book could possibly have in it.He'll get it when he's older or I am not able to be here anymore.

this is a great idea!!!!

i bought books a few years back at Hallmark, one for myself, one for DH and one each for the grandparents...... the books were a way for everyone to write things in to questions such as this.....

I love this, I will have to buy a notebook next time I'm at the store.  I have tried writing a "journal" for my kids so if something happens they can know stories about their birth and their life things that I always hear my mom telling me and I have been able to hear and enjoy.  But I can never get past a few pages with out bawling at the thought of not being here for them or not seeing them grow up... :(   But I need to do it so they can have it just in case.
