It’s amazing how the things you think you could never forget about your little one, you somehow do. You don’t think you’ll forget the details of the day they entered this world or what made them smile for the first time, but one stage of life turns into the next, and memories start to slip away.
This is why having a baby book that you can keep up with from day one is so important. I struggled to find one for my twins that I really liked until I saw Artifact Uprising (one of my long-time favorite photo companies!) introduce the most perfect memory book that included everything I was searching for!
The albums come in four beautiful colors and are designed as a ringed binder which is great because you can add so much more to it! They sell add on sheets or you can create your own which means you can make this book document more than just their first year of life!
Finding a book that was created as a binder was important for me as I loved the idea of hole punching documents or important memories and making it a part of their book. I added their first hand/foot prints from the NICU, special letters people have written them, and the very first picture they colored. This book has allowed us to make permanence of the moments that matter most.
The book comes with a beautiful pen, photo adhesives, and a complimentary set of their Everyday Prints which are perfect to use in the book! Since it comes from Artifact Uprising, you can be assured that everything is of the highest quality which makes it a timeless family heirloom.
The pages give you various prompts and fill in the blanks which are great, especially in those early sleepless days when finding the words to write can be a real challenge. I love that this book replaces the typical milestones with everyday, real moments.It can be easy to forget to keep up with your baby book the first year with all of the craziness and sleeplessness, so I recommend setting an alarm on your phone for the end of every month to remind you to work on a few pages. This way you aren’t left trying to remember all the details of your little ones at the end of their first year.
I have separate books for my twins, but I also wanted one that documented both of their baby lives together. They love to look through their book together and giggle at the photos of “baby sissy” and “baby bubba”.
My favorite thing about the Story of You memory book is all of the places it leaves to write letters to your little ones. From writing letters to them before they are born, to their half birthday, to the day they turn one, handwritten letters to your little boy or girl is such a beautiful way to document your feelings and their sweet personality during such a fleeting time.
