With DS1, I half-heartedly filled out a baby book, but there are a lot of blanks! I feel like many of the fill-ins are cheesy, don't apply to me, or are superfluous. Maybe these fill-in the blank books are just not suited to a more natural approach to birth and parenting?


Now with DS2 I'm wondering if I should even bother. Did you/do you fill in a keepsake book? I've thought about making my own, but can't imagine when I'd find the time! Do you think it's important to record baby's milestones? Did your mom keep a memory book for you, and have you ever looked at it?

Honestly, I have been too busy to even keep baby photo albums for all but my first child. Someone gave me a baby book and a baby photo album for my third, but I didn't really make the time to fill them out. I used to feel bad about that and the inconsistency of only one of my four children pictures in his or her photo album, but when I think about how often I look at the one Mom made for me, I realize it doesn't matter that much.


In other words, it's a nice thought, but if you're too busy making good memories with your child(ren) to write down the memories, don't worry!

May God bless you and His Blessed Mother Mary keep you!  :-)
