My memories

I first started this blog when I found out I was pregnant kind of in place as a scrapbook or journal and then once Brody was born I started updating it a lot more so that family and friends could stay updated and so it could be like a scrapbook. I want to remember each and every moment with my beautiful baby boy. I want to remember the exact day that 1st tooth came through the skin, or the first time he tried baby food and what he thought of it. I want to remember all of his "firsts" and capture everything, it all goes by way too fast. I want something that I can go back and look at to help bring back all of the memories we have already made.

We have a nightly routine and I wasn't able to get pictures of it all but every night we start out by taking a bath. I fill the tub up and put Brody in his seat, he knows the routine. He sits in his set and holds his hand out while I bring the bar up and when it clicks in place he knows that it is okay to put his hands down. He loves his baths, he loves to play with his bath toys and he really likes to chew on the washcloth. I sing him songs, and I splash the water and show him how to play with his toes. I wash him off and get him all clean while singing him a song. When we get out I wrap him up in a towel and take him straight to his room and I turn his music on, he loves it. We have a changing table but we don't really use it instead we sit on the floor. I lotion him up and give him his baby massage and then I use a little powder and I put his diaper on. Then I let him play in his room just in his diaper and we read books. Then I put his Pj's on and we go to spend a little more time with daddy before we go to bed.

Some may think it is silly to have these pictures but these are memories for me. This is my life, my world, my everything. This is what I do. This is my job and I take a lot of pride in it. I want to be able to look back and see my doing "my job." These are my memories that I never want to forget.

I love that you take lots of pictures and post them for memories. I just went back through my whole blog and read my journey through the ivf and having my son. Its such a gift to have those thoughts and memories documented like this.
I think its great that you want to keep them so fresh and real. Good for you. I can tell you love being a mom so much. You are a great mom to little Brody, he seems like a well cared for happy baby.
