So I decided to start a blog

... to document this pregnancy, birth, babyhood, etc. of my LO. I figure I can use it as a way to document everything that happens, and to share baby's life with friends and family who want to follow. I'm hoping that I will have better luck keeping up with the blog than I ever did with baby books... LOL

Anyone else do anything similar??

I think it's a great idea! I always love reading blogs! I'm not one to enjoy writing, though, and am not even sure that I'll even have a baby book!

That's a great idea! I'm horrible at updating blogs, I've tried, but failed miserably lol. I'm great with baby books. DS1's was updated religiously, I love going through it now. DS2, I'm a month behind LOL. Poor second child! this kid has no chance HAHAHAHA

That's an awesome idea!! I think it's a great way to keep track of pregnancy/labour/baby. I could never keep up and write everyday. I used to keep a journal, but I fell away from it. I also don't have a baby book and would probably be bad at keeping that record too! LOL!

But yet... for my own personal benefit (also so I could b&^#@ without worrying who was reading it) I do a weekly self-check-in! When I was pregnant with DS I found a really awesome list of questions that pretty much covers it all, and once a week I fill in the blanks! I love it. It helps me keep track of myself and it's fun to compare this pregnancy to last pregnancy.

I was thinking about a blog too. They are loads of fun but sometimes work to keep up with. The biggest thing you can do is keep it simple - this way there is no pressure. I've done a few blogs.

I had thought about it but so far no decision. But what has been nice for us with DS is that we have no family in town do we send out email updates each month or so which ends up serving as a nice summary of what DS has been doing , developmental milestones etc. I plan to put those emails in his baby book - I have yet to start he baby book and he is almost 2!!!!
