I'm especially psyched about this giveaway because I'm guessing many of you can relate to this: I have a baby book for my daughter to record the facts (first word, when she rolled over, crawled, walked, etc) and a journal to record memorable moments (trips, stories, funny anecdotes about her life), plus photo albums galore. I'd be lying if I said any of these were up to date. The new mom enthusiasm for recording all that somehow waned and now she's approaching age 3 and I'm wishing I had made the time to keep them all updated.
Baby #2 is coming in November and now I have no excuse for keeping memories of this one's life organized and up-to-date. I recently received a sample copy of My Life: A Chronicle of the Journey and it looks like this book will replace the separate baby book, journal and photo albums. It's a special baby book that makes it easy to record the facts and all the memories in one central place. The creator, Jennifer Covello, is a Norwalk mom of two. She walks you through each stage of child's life through age 5 and prompts you to record the facts, but also the little milestones and events that sometimes are forgotten. There's space for photos in the archival quality book, as well as pages for other family members (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc) to record their special memories with your child.
You can place an order for the book at www.frittabello.com. I'm loving it because it's timeless, gender neutral and not too cutesy. I'm planning to keep several on hand for last minute baby and shower gifts. And you should too! To win a copy for yourself or a friend, just follow these rules:
- Leave a comment below by answering the following question: Are you one of those moms with beautiful scrapbooks recording every phase of your child's life? Or are you like me - scattered, disorganized and incapable of keeping up with it all?
- Be sure to leave your first name and town (see sample below) by Sunday, July 19 at midnight.
- Check back here on Monday, July 20 to see if you won! Good luck.
