two months old

i never believed my mom when she told me that i would stop documenting and baby-booking everything after my first baby…

brody: baby book filled out entirely up until his first birthday.
foster: got a baby book for him. it has his picture in it…i think.
story: the thought of buying a baby book never even crossed my mind.

mom of the year.

my older sister is having her first baby in june and has these adorable little books and memory keepers on her registry. we were looking at them the other day and i felt a tad guilty about not having one for story's memories and milestones…and for not ever touching the other two that i own.

but then meghan said, "yeah, but you have a blog."

d*mn right i do.

  4. I can't get over how she looks exactly like Foster. I swear if she didn't have a bow on it could be him! Lol! She has pretty blue eyes too! I finished my daughter's book up to a year old then it got misplaced in a move and then I found it when she was like 3!

  6. As the youngest child I know how it feels to not have a baby book or hardly any pictures of me as a baby! How rude, mom ;)

    You are great about capturing memories for your little ones. Story really is beautiful! She really resembles Foster in these pics.

  7. So precious. My kids don't have baby books either {well they have them, they just aren't filled out..oops}. They each have a ton of pictures though. I think that's the sign of the times - when I was a baby they didn't take that many pictures so they wrote everything down.

  10. Aw man. I'll take your Mom of the Year award for dropping the baby book at not number three, but TWO! Yea honestly the thought didn't even occur to me that my first has one and second doesn't until after I read this post.

    Yea but see this is how I see it.
    Sure #1 gets a fancy baby book, but #2, #3 +... get the expertise.
    They may not have the cuteness of the records in a neat book, but they have more wisdom and Momma knowledge from the months/years under our belts.
    How's that!?!!
    YEA!

  14. Blogging wins. You have documented far more than could ever fit into one of those cute pastel memory books. Your little ones will have so much to remember and learn and grow from when they grow old enough to read all that you have saved for them! So awesome. Also, Story Is.So.Flipping.Cute. And wow does she ever look like Foster! You have such a darling bundle of littles.

  15. she's going to be so thankful that you documented her pooping habits:)
    And I have to say...get a baby book. It's not too late. Blogging is wonderful and a great and convient way to document things for your kids. But there is nothing like fipping through the pages of a baby book. it's one of my most cherished things from my mom and I wish so badly that my mother in law and done one for my hubby. Just take the pressure off. No one really cares about what the price of milk was or who the polictical leaders were. (they can look it up if they want. I really don't know why they put those questions in baby books) But they will love seeing your handwriting and seeing much they weighed and funny thing they did or said. (stuff that doesn't always make it on a blog) that just my opinion take it or leave it.
