I love creating happy memories but am not always the best at remembering them years down the line. Having a baby has bought so many happy/exciting/unique memories and I'm determined not to forgot them!
We have a typical baby book, which is perfect for recording Isabella's name, weight, date of birth, key events etc. The following items are more unique ways of remembering those special moments. So if a typical baby book isn't your thing but you still want to remember those early years with your little one, then one of the following books may be for you...
LETTERS TO MY BABYWe found this little book in a shop called JOY in London (they have stores across the country) and I just loved the concept. It's filled with 12 letters that you can write to your child, it acts as a kind of time capsule. You can write about your hopes and dreams for them, note down the date you sealed the letter in the book and then the date they can open the letter. I love that you're not only writing a letter to your child but it is saved for when they are old enough to appreciate your words. I think we are going to save this book until Isabella is 18 years old - I wonder if my hopes and dreams for her will come true, I hope so.
My brother actually bought me this for my birthday and I love it! I've been aware of the 'LISTOGRAPHY' range of journals before but never looked inside one. Again this book is really addressed to your child, as you fill in each page as if your child was reading it. There is a really wide range of things to remember throughout this book, some quite abstract! As the name of the book suggests, each page has a title at the top identifying the list you will write on that page. So if you know a parent or parent to be who likes writing lists then this is the book for them! The illustrations throughout add a nice touch and some humour in places.
Are you recording memories of your little one/s?
