The moment your eyes first lock, that first little smile, that special day when you bring your new babe home for the first time, your baby’s first visitors, the first time they roll over, crawl, walk, their first word-these are all SUCH precious moments that can be so easily forgotten over time. So when I stumbled across Artifact Uprising’s baby book, I couldn’t have been more thrilled to find such a beautiful book to store all those precious moments.
The Story of You, is a photo journal that mainly focuses on your baby’s first year of life. It’s chalk full of pages that allow you jot down notes and insert pictures of all those special moments. From pages talking about what life was like before your sweet babe was born, to your first ultrasound, to when you first met- this book has it all. It’s already been so much fun for me to be able to look back and read about the last two months that Finnley has been in our lives. To be able to have all these precious memories in one place to look back on is so special.
One of my my favorite things about this book is the separate pages for each month which allows me to write down each little thing that happened in that month of Finnley’s life. Like how in his first month of life, if he was upset, I would wrap him in a swaddle and he would instantly fall asleep. Or that he wouldn’t sleep anywhere aside from on my chest for the first 2 weeks. Or how he constantly loves to keep his legs locked. So many little things that will mean everything when I’m old and gray and he’s all grown up.
From the stunning fabric cover, to the foiled stamped gold lettering, to the detailed pages filled with quotes that bring tears to your eyes, this book is more than just a baby book but a keepsake that will forever be treasured. If you have any questions about this book or any of the content I would be more than happy to answer them!
