Remembering all the little things.

Having a toddler and a newborn to keep up with and remember all the dates and milestones is not an easy task, so I wanted an easy way to keep track of it all.
One day I will sit down and have time to write it all nicely in their baby books, but until then this is my easy way out. And now I want to share it with you.

I have two identical notebooks, one for each child. In these I write down everything that happens big or small, as you would in a journal/diary. I write them for my children so they can read them when they grow up and I always sign with "mommy loves you" and a heart.

Next I have two Filofax Domino personal size that contain month on two pages for every year, my homemade pages to keep track of vaccinations and weight/height measurements. Plus several sheets of lined notepaper to jot down anything else that I might need to remember. I got some very handy stickers from organized-mum with pregnancy/baby actions (these you can see in my monthly pages).

These are still a project I will work to make them more like a baby book and less like a filofax. I plan on adding my own homemade dividers with pictures of my kids and other bits and bobs to decorate a little.
They do make it easier to keep track and on super busy weeks I still have time to just pop a sticker in the correct box.

Thanks for popping by, please enjoy the pictures.
