Baby Books: does anyone still do this?

Prior to joining Blogging Baby, I did an interview with Stefania Butler where I said that "Mommy/Daddy Blogging was the new baby book."  Recently, I attended a baby shower where the guest of honor received a baby book as a gift -- and I couldn't help but think, "Yeah, she's NEVER going to fill that up."  I certainly never completed one, and frankly, why bother?  The first year of my weblog chronicles my daughter's every move.  I've actually printed it out for her to read later.  Trust me, this kid is going to learn more about her first year of life than she wants to know.

So I wonder:  does anyone actually do baby books anymore?  With all due respect to scrapbookers, scrapbooking doesn't count -- in my mind, people who scrapbook are artists, and scrapbooking is an art form.  I'm talking about those books that have places for you to fill in "baby's first tooth," or "baby's first words" -- do you parents out there still manage to complete these?  Or have you found that blogging and scrapbooking have taken over?  What do you do to record memories of your children's lives?
