Memories Book - Create One for Your Baby

Updated on October 4, 2013

Memories Book - A Scrapbook of a Life

Why not break out your scrapbooking creativity and create a memories book for your baby. Or one for someone close to you as a gift.

This is a great way to commemorate your child's life. I made one for each of my girls. Now that they are older (teenagers) they look at them from time to time and add pictures or momentoes that are important to them.

A memories book can be a great life gift and fun scrapbooking too.

Starting Your Memories Book - Scrapbooking Fun

They both start on page one with information about them - birth date, weight, etc. The first picture showed them as a 'bulge' and then there is the ultrasound where you could see that I was actually carrying a human baby and not just gaining weight.

From there its anything and everything that says something about the development of this new person - as it interests you. Certainly in later years it will interest your child.

You can take note of the hit song on the day your child was born and put the lyrics in - you can find it here.. You can also put in material about what the fashions of the day were.

On a personal note, you can add a page telling your child what their name means; its easy to find on the What does my Name Mean page.
