I have a baby book that I bought before the little Mexi-can was born. I swore I would write everything down and keep up with all that happened.
I know that sounds like a prelude to failure, but I haven't really failed. Has the book been filled out? No. However, I did jot down a lot of dates with happenings, and most of those happenings have pictures/videos that coincide with them. I thought, just for safety purposes, I would publish this to vivacindy in case I lose that little list, or heaven forbid all my pictures.
(Can you imagine what a nightmare that would be?! I actually just backed up everything the other day with my new 1.5TB hard drive purchased at B&H)

What about you guys? Have you kept up with baby books, dates, pictures of your little ones? What has been a good system for you?
