i gave birth to our first baby, a perfect little girl, in april, almost ten months ago. i really regret that i haven't kept a baby book for her. we received one for our shower from my mom but didn't feel very comfortable with it (more my guy than me, but me also to an extent) as there were entire pages we wouldn't have used (i.e. baptism).
i've off-and-on kept a journal and there are two forums i was active in during the first 6 months or so, so i could kinda of reconstrue stuff if/when she asks me about her babyhood. i think i feel guilty mostly because i know how much it bothered me that i didn't have one as a kid, and here i am, making the same situation for my daughter. ;( granted, we have tons of video and photos, which is way more than i ever had. that reassures me. but i can't believe how much i've already forgotten - like when she first rolled over, etc.
should i maybe try to find a more neutral baby book and fill it in now, before i truly forget everything? or should i just let it go?
thanks for reading. as always, it's surprising how much better i feel just typing it out. ;)
