Facebook Moments: The New Baby Book?!

It's An Ordinary Blog

I lost a Facebook friend today (through deletion, not death) and it prompted me to go through my wall and look at the ‘old stuff’. I’ve had Facebook for several years now (since late 2004) and I’ve always been really good at keeping my wall clean (removing everything every six months to one year) but when I had C two years ago this month, that changed. For some reason, I can’t seem to delete those status updates, photos, and videos of her. I realized something…I’ve been tracking C’s development, height/weight progress from her check-ups, major successes, etc. through my social media account. Has Facebook replaced the baby book?!

I’m making it my March goal to write down everything I currently have on Facebook into C’s actual baby book. How do you use Facebook to document your journey as a parent?

  1. I whole-heatedly feel you on this. I was recently thinking about this exact development.. The evolution of the baby book and how much our children will be able to likely see and know about the process of raising them! I recently lost one of the only tapes from my childhood. They will get to see so much. I often wonder if that will change how they grow up and their perceptions of themselves. It’ll be interesting! T
