When you have a newborn "they" recommend you keep a log of all feedings and diaper changes. So I did. I can look at my log and know that one year ago today, we changed nine poopy diapers and I nursed eight day old Nathaniel nine times.
Most people stop logging the ...um, logs...within a few months. But I couldn't stop. Yes, I'm anal - but I like having a little diary entry for every day. Even if it's just about Nate's poop. My family laughed at me and took bets about how long I would continue to write down these little milestones (their predictions ranged from five months to college).
Well, it's been over a year and I am still writing it all down. Well, not ALL down. I've added some things (sleep) and dropped others (pee diapers). And I love having this record to look back upon.
