Memory Books – For Keepsakes and Baby Memories
The arrival of a new baby is filled with optimism and excitement and a lot of commotion. From the first time you see them to the first touch from a sister or brother, to the joy on the grandparents faces, your new bundle of joy makes a lot of commotion. It's horrible to look back at those special times and not have a picture to relive those moments in your family life.
If you haven't purchased a baby memory book for each of your kids yet, then now's the time to get them. If you confused baby memory books and keepsake books as a vanity thing, then think about your kids and what they think. The fact that you're collecting special photos and keepsake items from parts of their lives makes them feel special, loved and important. If a memory from their real life activities are important to retain, then they get the idea their lives are relevant and important.
If you've seen some teenagers today, you'll note that lack of confidence. Many feel insignificant, that their life events are not "all that." The foundations for confidence and self-esteem are built in childhood.
As kids get older and see the memory book through years, they will recognize the change in their own perception of the pictures of them. They'll learn that they are growing and maturing and that they indeed had a good childhood. Too many people grow up with the idea that they had a bad childhood when in fact it wasn't too bad at all. The events they thought were negative or positive were just part of a normal childhood.
If you're not in the habit of engineering special events and occasions for your kids then the presence of a baby memory book might give you the spur to get kids active. Whether its photos of them playing at the local playground on slides and swings, or at a birthday party or backyard get together, there are going to be plenty of opportunities to get photos of them having fun and sharing experiences with others. Later, when they see those photos, a positive self-image will be the result.
What are the most special baby memories? The number one photo opportunity is having relatives hold the baby for the first time. The first time they were brought home and seeing people's reaction to the newborn is bound to capture images of relative's positive attitude. Pictures of tots sitting on a toilet or in the bathtub are popular too, however you wonder if your child will appreciate those as he grows older. It might be something that makes the baby memory book less desirable to them.
Other top occasions you should be photographing are the first time standing, walking, riding in a toy car, tricycle,
Of course many baby memory books can hold pictures right into the toddler years when kids learning faster and there are plenty of funny and interesting things happening. As your family grows older and experience short term difficulties, the baby pictures and pics of siblings together and birthday party pictures remind them of those simpler, innocent days.
There are many more interesting things that can be included in your baby keepsake book. Perhaps you should write some memories of the baby's unique behaviours, moments when they shared, and events where they learned something new. We're the video generation so capturing memories on a dvd recorder can be saved to a dvd disk and stored in the binder.
Quality Books with Great Themes
Don't forget that your baby book will be viewed many times through the years, so it should be of durable construction. Baby memory books that fall apart or look ragged around the edges defeat the purpose of the book – to showcase a youngster's life. A torn, broken book with pages falling out looks like something that is soon to be discarded, and these memories are precious parts of your life. They're not disposable.
