Keeping Track of the Little One

I loved this idea on ohdeedoh.com ...I'm afraid that our Little One will be growing and changing so quickly that I won't be able to keep up. This idea seems quick and easy...and it would be a wonderful keepsake for our Little One:

Kat over at Steady Mom uses index cards in an index card box with dividers. The dividers list the months and each card represents a day of the year. Whenever something memorable happens, a short description is written down on the card for that day.

We like the fact that the index cards are small enough to keep out on a kitchen table or counter, so we'd actually be more likely to remember to fill them out.

We'd also consider using this for when your toddler starts talking and saying some really funny things.

Your new home!

Hello Little One. You have a new home. We found our new home in July/August of 2009, and we put an offer on the house, which was conditional to us selling our home. We waited and waited and finally, on December 23, 2009, we found out that our house was sold! We took possession of the house on January 23, 2010, and we moved in on February 6, 2010. We have lots of work to do, to get the house ready for you, but we are so excited that this will be your home. We loved our other house, but it was a little small, and this house has room to grow...and one of your Grandma's will be living right downstairs!
