Seeing as both of my kids were born in the Internet Era, I figured it would be fun to keep track of both of their first years with a daily photo log in Flickr. It’s actually been easier than keeping a daily journal like my mom did for my sister & I, as you don’t need to remember to write anything. When you have questions like, “how old was Mackenzie when she first started wanting to stand up?” — one just has to look at the daily photos, as the milestones are all there.
Plus, I’m an obsessive geotagger – so I’ve also got a nifty map of where we were each day, which is also great fun see.
We’re on our 11th month of the project now. One day, when I have time, I’ll make a side-by-side comparison to Mackenzie’s baby 365 Project, which for me is already extra-fun to do.
