Baby albumFirst piece of advice: take lots of pictures…and video. You think you’ll remember what your baby sounded like over the months, but they grow so fast. You won’t regret the number of videos and pictures you take, but you will if you take too few. Second piece of advice: A checklist like this will help you keep track of the must-have pictures and videos. Plus, if you do choose to make an album, it’ll be so much easier to prioritize what should go in it. (via Pin image)
