Aww, that is pretty cute, but I’m pretty sure that by the time this baby is 18 (or heck, even 13) technology will have advanced even further and e-mail will be way different. Just think of how far we’ve come in the last 18 years!

@eecuadrado:  I would be too nervous to do that. I feel like something physical would be preserved better over time. Do you log into the account occasionally? I think for some email accounts if you don’t log into it after a certain period of time then it will be closed. It’s a cute idea, but I think logistically hard to pull off, especially not knowing what technology is going to be like in the future.

@eecuadrado:  Hmm I don’t have any ideas. I end up typing my little update letters out and placing a few pics with them. News gets slower after the u/s, and I find myself more tired, stressed, and cynical in my pregnancy now than I was prio to the u/s. Plus, we are having a boy, and I don’t know that a boy would appreciate this as much as a girl. I do spice up my letters with funny stuff and be all jokey when I can, but I have slowed down my efforts in the past few weeks.

I would write a few letters, and get some other people to write letters, and scan the into the emails, that way they have your handwriting.  It’s really nice looking through birthday cards from relatives that have passed away, and to see the notes they wrote in their own hand.

A large part of me wants to preserve the things I’ve grown up with, and not be a totally tech savvy and mom and family. So I would rather write letters and cards to my child than emails. Just my personal preference
