That's so cool! I should try that with Wesley!

Drea said...

Wendy: It was fun. I am glad I did it because it made me think during the day about the little things Jacob does that I probably wouldn't even have remembered a month down the road! I used several of the same ones from others' blogs so it didn't take too too long to do.

Drea: Aww, I remember reading that once in your blog a while ago. I remembered smiling and thinking wow, they do that too :) That is a great song! :) We heard in several baby books that a little baby can remember and have memories of repeated sounds even as an adult. I thought that was really amazing; so we always sang that one because it is so repetitive. I think that it even improves brain function! Thank goodness for music. And in a way we are witnessing to our children right from birth.

Summer said...

Hi. That is a great list.

Devoted Mama said...

What a neat idea! I will have to try this later though~right now, I'm just TOO exhausted! And, I'll have to do 2 of them :) I'll definitely do it once I'm not so tired :) This is really sweet! You'll be glad you did this & can look back on it & remember little things :)

Wendy said...

Wesley and Jacob were very similar in their birth stats! He was born April 26th, and he was the same weight and length! COOL!

Shanilie said...

Oh wow, that is cool! And a b-day in April too! Great time of year I think. Don't have to worry about going into labor in winter and having to worry about roads and free enough to do things in summer because by then they will be approx 3-4 months and also I don't know how I would be in the dead heat of summer 9 months pregnant! It wasn't planned but if I have another I thing around easter is the perfect time~
