Memories...

When I was pregnant with LO, I bought the cutest little baby book from Hallmark. It's completely adorable! And, being the good first-time-mommy that I am, I've kept up with that book like nobody's business. It had pages about our baby showers, a letter to the baby from mommy and daddy, info about her birth, her footprints, and a page for each month of her first year of life. And of course it also had a few pages dedicated to her very first birthday! That book is complete, with the exception of a snip of her hair from her first haircut (since she hasn't had one yet).

So here's my dilemma... What about month 13? So basically after my little girl turns one, I'm supposed to stop tracking her firsts, stop taking pictures and stop writing about the fun we're having with our little one?! Seriously. That's not cool! I mean, really. We just turned her car seat around so she's forward-facing now. But it happened after she turned one. I still took pictures of the big event! And I'd like to write it down somewhere, too! But where?

I've searched online quite a bit and have had ZERO luck finding a "toddler" book that begins at age 1 and goes through 3, 4 or 5. Am I alone in this world in my thinking that I'd still like to "scrapbook" somewhat all the things LO is doing and will do over the next few years? Sure, we'll probably have baby #2 at some point, and I'll have a new baby book to keep up with. But that doesn't mean I don't want to still keep up with our toddler's milestones!

Have any of you seen something similar to what I'm talking about? A baby book that's not really for babies? Like a toddler book that starts at age 1? If anyone has any idea what I'm talking about, PLEASE HELP!
