From sitting without help, crawling, hands-knee-position, pulling themselves to stand, to walking, there are so many moments that you would love to relive. This post looks at creative ideas to record these milestones for posterity.

Memory App

Smartphones have virtually taken over every aspect of modern life. From learning, gaming, budgeting to shopping, everything is happening on mobile apps. No wonder millions of apps are downloaded every day. You can leverage this technology to record the important memories in your child’s life.

The app acts as an online journal and you record important moments in your life. There’s a calendar to organize your journal and some of these apps have editing, voice recognition, and social media sharing capabilities.

Baby Photography

Baby photographs remain a popular way to record beautiful moments. The best thing about these photographs is the customization options available. You can ride on the baby photography trends or create your own standout moments.

Using a professional photographer makes a big difference if you want the best portraits. After capturing the best moments, you can then create a photo book and add captions for every photo. Your family will love browsing through these photos.

Memory Box

What do you do with those doodles, drawings, baby handprints, and other items that define special moments in your child’s life? A memory box is a smart idea to store those special items that have great value in your child’s life. You could customize the box with your baby’s photo or inscriptions.

Physical Journal

Moms have a lot of time to reflect on life. From the moment your child is in your hands, you have a lot of fears and hope. You can express these as a physical journal or letter format. Every thought that goes into the journal carries a lot of weight, and the moment you share this journal with your child, they’ll appreciate it. Journaling also boosts your mental wellness.

Emails to Your Baby

A baby can give you a purpose in life. You have so much in mind to tell your child and even thank them. Email is one of the most creative ideas to record important moments in your baby’s life. Create an email address for the baby and send them sweet emails about your day or those big moments you have experienced. Did they fall? Maybe they attempted to sit up and stumbled?

Whatever important thing your child has done or experienced, compile it in an email and send it. A time will come when your child is all grown up and they’ll love reading these emails. You’ll also have a record of every email you sent. Sweet and smart, isn’t it?

Seeing your baby grow is a lot of fun and what better way to celebrate this incredible journey than by marking these special moments? These ideas are a good start and your child will appreciate
