A little while after Philip was born, I found a journal where you write just a little blurb about what you have done each day. I write things like "Philip broke through his first tooth!" or "man, rough night last night. I wish Philip would sleep better!" or this gem "Natalie loves to cuddle. Keeps saying 'keep me warm'".
I've been pretty good at writing every night; although there have been a few times that I've had to play some catch up. The book has space for five years of writing and I'm so looking forward to rounding the first year and thinking back about the day-to-day activities that go on and remembering how special that new tooth, missed night of sleep, or cuddling really is.
