As every mom will tell you, “they grow up so fast,” but it’s true. I can’t believe how quickly the past 18 months have gone, and I know that just around the corner (figuratively speaker) Porter will be starting kindergarten.
That being said, I think it’s important to document these precious times. Now don’t go assuming anything crazy and think that I have Porter’s baby book finished. Because I don’t. It’s on my summer “to do” list, though, so hopefully I can finish it in the next few months.
I do, however, have photo books that document my pregnancy with Porter as well as his birthday and birth story [Read Porter’s birth story here.] These books are really special to me, and I hope they will be special to Porter someday, too.
I know there are myriad of photo book companies and options. I’ve used and experimented with a few, but I always go back to Shutterfly. By the way, this is not a sponsored post; I truly love Shutterfly and their products. Their photo book making process is easy (which is not the case for all photo book companies), and they have many templates and options to get you started.
I used to have them displayed on our tv stand, but Porter figured out how to climb on top of Maggie’s toy basket in order to reach them. Now I have them packed away, but thankfully Porter didn’t rip any of the pages. The hard covers are a plus, too.
Here’s more proof that Porter likes these books almost as much as I do…
