And that's how my journey to keep and save keepsakes for my children started.....
Choosing what to KEEP and SAVE!!
What toys and personal mementos are they going to want to remember and look through later? What will they treasure as adults?
1 of the easiest and best ways to start was:
Setting up a baby book for each child and keeping up with it as your little one reached each milestones, and trying to complete it before you forgot everything that happened. .
For me, my baby book is a real treasure. I love reading it and looking at each picture with the comments on the side!! I have to admit, for some reason, I was more dedicated, focused and committed to my eldest "Precious Memories Book" than I was for my 2nd angel :( yet...I did manage to fill as much pages off her book as possible...printed out some photos....
I can't wait to share their books with them!! I'm sure they will certainly love to know the details of their births, as they get older, especially when it’s time for them to have kids of their own.
Their 1st YEAR Birthdays....
School Memories keepsakes...
I decided to continue saving as much memories for my kids as I possibly can....I don't know how much I will be able to go on with this obsession, this hobby, this need to leave a trace of all the amazing memories we are sharing and experiencing together in our lovely crazy journey!!! YET, I know whatever I will be able to give to my kids once they are all grown up and mature they will love and cherish :)
or so I pray and hope!!
