It might seem a little hokey to write a whole book about your baby’s first year


You don’t want to be the parent who obsesses over your son’s first avocado, or tells long stories about how your daughter slept through the night. But memories are fleeting, and a year from now, you’ll have forgotten the milestones and funny events of those early days. A baby memory book — an understated one: no glitter, cherubs, or baby booties motifs here — can be a decidedly non-hokey way to record those moments and details that you’ll want to remember: First words, first steps, first avocado.

Creating a baby book is a pretty solid way to kill some time when you’re in COVID-19 lockdown, as well, and if you’re a parent with a newborn at home during a pandemic, suffice to say this is a moment in history worth recording.
