Never Forget Those Baby Moments

They say the real precious baby moments are unforgettable. The trouble is they are replaced with another unforgettable moment straight away and so on! There is no way to remember and hold onto everything. The truth is every moment you share with your baby is precious. You have been looking forward to this time for so long and it passes by so quickly. You really have to be proactive to capture the whole beauty of your baby’s early days and months. Here are a few thoughts on preserving the memory in ways that will allow you to revisit them again and again.

Start a Memory Box

This will be a treasure trove of the future. You will love to come back to this again and again. Start it as soon as you can! You could even hold memories here of the baby shower. Make it more than a list of guests. Start to save cards and mementos. Save as much as you can. Many mothers to be like to have a copy of their scans. It can be incredible to think what a tiny precious person you have beginning to form inside you. As you begin to collect first outfits and toys, it can be fun to recall who they are from. As the big day draws near, you’ll have lots of things to think about. So the sooner you can get organized and start your box the better.

With the arrival you will probably be inundated with gifts, cards and well wishers. This is another treasure trove to hang onto. Don't worry about filing them now, just keep storing and collecting. Later on you might want to put these items into a scrapbook, but for now just collect everything you can, even the arm or leg tag from the hospital. There will come a time when you won't believe how small and tiny they were.



Pictures and Video

Cameras are everywhere these days and it is really common for us to take rather a lot of pictures. Mostly these are forgettable and the quality is not always that good. But take as many pictures as you can! You may or may not want to have the birth itself as a subject but that is entirely up to you!

It can be really worth while getting the advice of a professional newborn baby photographer. You can arrange to have some amazing pictures taken that you can be really proud of. These will be the type of pictures that you will treasure forever and want to share. Things move so quickly in the early days, weeks and months that it is well worth scrapbooking your special family photos.


Baby Book

You will never forget this one opportunity. Buy a First Baby Book and use it to record everything you can about your baby and the amazing changes that are happening. Here you can record every minute moment and movement. This is a place for you to write down your thoughts as well. It can be a fascinating and even funny record of your early days and nights, which are pretty much the same thing! Try and keep it for a year and you will be amazed at the fascinating journey you have both undertaken.

As sure as day follows night and night follows day, your baby will grow. Keeping a record will enable you both to treasure these unforgettable moments for ever.
