Baby Books, Scrapbooks, Baby Photos Oh my!

We all want to be rockstar moms. But sometimes life just gets the best of us. One area that is tough to keep up with: baby albums. You have probably noticed from your OWN parents that the first child is documented like a science experiment. Every single thing has a picture. Here is Joe at 6 weeks 3 days. Here is Joe at 6 weeks 3 days and 33 minutes. My how fast he is changing!

And then the second kid has about 10 pictures. Total. And most of them aren't even labeled. In fact, you are not entirely convinced these aren't pictures of first baby just labeled with your name. Or some random baby photo your mom found in a picture frame and slapped your name on the back so you wouldn't feel entirely unloved.

These days it is easy to keep an adorable chronicle of every season of baby's life. Even the second and third child! All you need is a digital camera and some cool websites. Well, and a little money. But not much.

Every now and then upload your favorite family pics to a site like Kodak Gallery, Photobucket, Snapfish, Shutterfly, Walmart, and honestly more than we can list here.

Then whenever you feel like, create a photo book on the site. You can make one for baby's first year. And you can add captions for each picture, create collages, etc. They are mailed to you in a cute little booklet all labeled and ready to enjoy. They also make great gifts for Grandma :)

So instead of having 40,000 pictures on your computer just sitting there waiting for you to print, sort, organize into an album and label, you just use the photo sharing site and it's all taken care of. Say cheese!
