Often I think about how to capture memories for my family. How do I record those everyday, scrumptious things they do that bring us so much joy? I love hearing how other moms do this or have done it. So, if you have an idea, share it! After all, we are the record keepers for our family! And, I couldn’t think of a better job!
You’ve heard me say, Carter is funny. He is. He’s a funny little dude. And, best of all, he has one of those contagious laughs. He smiles and laughs with his whole body. He jumps around with joy. I love that boy. I made this book for him in which I record all the funny things he says and does.
Bonuses to the book:
- We’ll have sweet memories recorded we probably wouldn’t have otherwise. They’re just everyday stuff that gives me the chuckles.
- He’ll always have a piece of me. My memories of him, my thoughts and prayers, (a separate journal), and my handwriting. For me, I cherish anything that still has my moms handwriting on it. In fact, I used to have a cookbook of hers that she wrote a few recipes in. I haven’t seen it in years. After our wedding and we moved into our home, Will & I, scoured all our boxes for it with no avail. So, if you’re reading this and you know where it is, please send it back to me. I miss it!
I wanted to tell you about the little book because I’ve been so inspired by what my friends do to celebrate their children. Not because I think the book is genius or anything! So, what do you do?
Check out another amazing treasure my friend, Steph, does for her girls. She calls it a birthday blessing book. I love this idea and have high hopes of incorporating this as well. Hey, when you only have to write once a year, it’s pretty easy!
