According to a new survey, the baby items new moms are mostly likely to keep are booties and mittens.  Now I did come across some strange stuff too including 32% of new moms keep a piece of the baby's umbilical cord, 19% kept the positive pregnancy test and approx 11% hold onto the maternity clothes they wore during labor.  A small 1% surveyed kept their baby's fingernail and toenail clipping

My wife kept just about everything except the cord and nails,  she continues to collect things throughout the years and puts together scrapbooks / photo albums for Macy Lynn.  What did you keep and why?  Are you still keeping certain things and compiling them into scrapbooks etc?
