I happen to know quite a few people who are currently pregnant and in that wonderful state of pre-baby bliss where you have no idea what is coming next no matter how much you think you might know.
I was there once...it was a great place to be, but I wouldn't trade my current place in life for the world.
Anyway...back to the point.
One of the things I promised myself I would do was take a picture of our little boy every day during his first year of life. Then I was going to put them all together in a photo-montage so you could see how he grew every day.
I was being realistic (or so I thought) by not requiring that the picture I took be in the exact same chair/pose/lighting/etc.
But let's REALLY be real here....somedays...a picture just ain't happening. In fact...some WEEKS a picture just ain't happening!!
God help my second child because I can't even get it together enough to have even purchased a baby book for my first child, not to mention fill it out and happily keep track of every milestone in matching pen with fun anecdotes and quotes.
I like to consider myself a pretty creative and together person...I have scrapbooked for years....but this having a kid thing REALLLLLLLY kills your free time.
So I quietly keep tabs on my pregnant friends and read the lovely things they have to say about their intentions of photo journaling their children's lives and I just keep my mouth shut...because dreams like that are what get women through pregnancy and who am I to stomp on anyone's dreams.
