5. Write a Journal Or a Book of Letters
Although I don’t yet have a child, I think this is my favorite way to document baby’s firsts, and I know I’ll end up doing it. If you do have time, if you like to write, even if you can’t begin writing things down until your baby is a bit older, this is a wonderful idea. You can remember all the little things and create a record that will later show your child what you were thinking and feeling, and who you are as a parent.
