Baby takes his first bite, baby takes her first step, birthdays, baths, funny sleeping positions, halloween costumes and other similair moments typically make the camera roll. Then that little baby that was just learning to walk starts sprinting down a soccer field with a group of other little chaps. And now you have hundreds of photos of little Johnny doing his thing. Really, around every corner is an opportunity for a memory to be cherished.
If any of you are like me, you take the photos. You take the camera to the Kindergarten program and you switch back and forth with the still and the video camera. That’s the easy part. And then those photos eventually get loaded onto some kind of hard drive and after that, well…they sit there.

Now, before I became mother hen to multiple little chickens, I had time to do something with the photos. I cut, glued and wrote little snippets and placed them neatly in scrapbook albums. I don’t do that anymore.
Blogging became the new way of documenting our life. I’ve loved it and was planning, of course, to put each blogging year into a book.
Have I done that yet? Nope! (Has it really been 5 years? Is that what I have to catch up on?)
You see the glitch I have in my brain. I’m the halfway girl. I get it half done. (At least I have the photos, the half I can’t get back.)
Every time a new year comes, the first thing on top of my resolution list is to finally do something with all those photos and videos and blog posts. Well, this is the year. Knowing that another little baby with firsts is about to enter the mix over here has me moving my booty finally. I’ve had to strategize what would be the best, most efficient and doable way for me to accomplish this feat…in this season of my life.
So, I thought long and hard about all the different ways we can preserve all these memories and compile them into a way that the whole family can enjoy.
Here are 7 of the things I have thought of to help preserve some of those memories.
