The third child

My mother had three children. I was the oldest, and I was also the only one with a completed baby book. I understand, because the more kids you have, the less time you have. Even though time is tight, I want all of my kids to have a scrapbook dedicated to their first year.

Yesterday I went to the craft store to purchase an album for the new baby. I picked out the perfect scrapbook. Then I came home and tried to find my 20 week ultrasound pictures. I have no freaking idea where I put those pictures. I have searched every possible place I can think of. They are lost, and who knows when or where they'll turn up.

Poor third baby.

I'm horrible. Kalila's isn't finished. ZJ doesn't have one at all... I have more things saved to put in one for him than I had for her, just nothing to put them in. But... I have my blog and thinking someday I'd like to print some of the posts for them. We'll see.

I can relate! I am the fourth baby and I have like 5 baby pictures! My oldest sister has tons...and baby clothes that were hers!
I am going to definitely make an effort with #2 but, there is just not enough time in the day!
