A few weeks after Ellie was born I went out and bought a journal, I wanted to write directly to her. She will only be a baby and child for such a short amount of time I want to cherish every moment I can. I want to be able to remember these moments and tell her about them later, all of our struggles, laughs, little moments we share. Plus, keeping a journal where I write directly to her is so much easier than just keeping a journal in general with no specific audience. Every few days I write directly to her about milestones she's made, how I want our relationship to grow as she ages, little fun facts about her, etc. I hope to keep a journal like this throughout her life and continue with each child. I'm not sure if I'll tell her about the journal or surprise her later with it, maybe when she gets married or becomes a mother herself. I thought of this project as something our family will always cherish.
Do you keep a journal? Do you have any secrets about being consistent in writing in it?
