I have had the best of intentions about starting traditions and doing things weekly or monthly since he was born. I tried taking pictures with his age on a little sign. I tried making onesies with his height, weight, and age. I have things to make a scrapbook. I occasionally remember to write his 'firsts' on a calendar.
Results: pictures of a one week old Booger, a onesie for 2 months old, and a box of pictures, hospital bracelets, and other momentos. And a baby named Booger.
The one thing I've accomplished consistently is posting pictures in multiple places and emailing my mom and sister. So now the plan is to multitask and keep up with how amazingly quickly he grows, and maybe actually end up with a traditionish type something! We'll see!
