I’ve written before about the documentary impulse that digital photography seems to have fostered in all of us. It gets even worse with kids, because of course they grow up fast and do a lot of cute things along the way, and there are always friends and relatives who are clamoring for an update.
Since they’re easier to share, I tend to take pictures of my son with my cell phone or iPad rather than my camera. I’ve been meaning to start a scrapbook and take more “proper” photographs, but I never seem to get the time! Maybe when he’s older… like, 18. In the meantime, I’m in awe of people who are together enough to write their children’s milestones down in a diary.
Do you have kids (or pets or adorable friends) whose activities you like to keep up with? What do you do to record the different phases?
