So, from Eden’s first month…to her thirty-seventh month…we have documented the lives of our children. It started as a little keepsake for Eden. I thought I would document her first twelve months and that would be that. But I could not stop! And now I’m so happy we have kept it going. Imagine how fun it will be when our kiddos hit eighteen, to hand over updates…from EVERY month…as a gift, “Here kiddo. This is your life as observed by your parents.”
And it has been so fun! And so natural. And so easy. If you are interested in how to do such, here’s our sophisticated system. We keep a sheet of paper on the refrigerator for each kid. Anytime anything remarkable happens, either Phil or I jot it down on the paper. Once a month, the list is taken down and combined into our monthly updates. Voila. Easy. Precious.
