I've sort of been slacking on the blog this month, so I thought you could all use an update. With the first of the year, I started keeping calendars for the girls. Basically, I fill in the square for that day at night before I go to bed, just making a note about something they did that day. I figure they'll really like having them when they get older. Plus, bonus, it will make it easier for me to fill in the baby book whenever I get around to that..... probably when Shay is like five years old.... lol.
