when addison was born, i wanted to write down everything. every smile, every cute cry where she folded her hands and just wailed, every single moment i wanted to document. i knew it wasn't logical though and i was afraid if i started too many things, i would end up quitting all of them. so i committed myself to a few ways on documenting addison's first year. i carved out time every month to sit and write for a couple minutes or an afternoon (however much time i had) and i made sure i did it. there were a few times i had to play catch up but now that i'm looking back, i'm glad i did it. i know i'm going to forget when she got her first tooth (heck i already can't remember how old she was) and it's stuff i'll be itching to remember when addison has her own baby.
i thought i'd share my three ways i documented addison's first year. it was fun to create but now it's even more fun to look back at.
i'm so happy i did these things and i've definitely stuck with the letters but i've got a few different things i'm doing to document her second year of life that i'll share eventually.
what are your favorite ways to remember your little babes in their early days?
