When I was pregnant with my twin girls I swore to myself that I would document everything, and keep a journal, and take photos of every milestone. HOWEVER after they were born, I found it impossible to take the time to create memories when I was trying to figure out HOW TO SURVIVE. How could I be expected to journal when I was focused on feeding, and changing, and feeding, and changing and more feedings. The chores were endless. I think back now, and I wish I would have made the time. I wish I could have more treasures of my babies as babies so that I could keep that forever. Keepsakes are more important than I ever thought. I can’t EXPRESS IT ENOUGH. In the midst of being tired and feeling like you don’t have the time- please do yourself a favor and TRY. I decided to put together a list of some of my favorite keepsakes. These are things that are easy, and not too expensive.
