My husband Brad was the second child, and we've noticed that when you look at family photo albums, there's a real lack of pictures by himself. So I'm very conscious of the need to make sure we record this baby's childhood in a special way. Since I'm a scrapbooker, I'm not too worried about that, since if anything my tendancy is to over document. I'm wondering, how did you record your children's childhood and what attempts did you make to ensure each is represented equally and as an individual?

Did you keep a pregnancy journal for each child? When I was pregnant the first time, I ran out and bought tons of books, planners, and journals. Second time around, it's been a lot less. In fact, this is the first thing I bought, after pulling out my keepsake box from ER and seeing all the journaling I did for her. It made me feel kinda bad, that I wasn't charting each little thing again, in something nicer than scribbles in my planner.
