The baby books.
I am a little obsessive compulsive when it comes to her baby book. I like to keep track of everything. I started a book for her before she was born, chronicling everything that happened while I was pregnant. I would write about every doctor's appointment we had, special outing we had, our baby shower, like I said, everything. I have expanded that book to make a baby book for her too. I have an actual baby book that you write things in that's really nice, but it just does not have everything I want in it, so I made my own. I want her to have something she can look back on, and know that I really did and always will love and care for her. I recommend that everyone do something like this. This way I can also look back and remember everything that happened. I work on it everyday at school because I always have free time. That way it doesn't take away from my time with her. It really is something I look forward to doing everyday. I can't wait until I get it caught up (I didn't work on it after she was born until I went back to school).
It's really easy to do. Just get a binder and some sheet covers to protect the paper. Type things on the computer and put them in. I got some paper with baby foot prints and some scrap book stickers and stuff to make it look nice. I am planning on decorating the binder itself at some point too. One thing I recommend is starting with a big binder. I started with a small one and now it is out growing it.
