Good Morning!! I hope you are having a great week so far. I have been excited to share something with you that I am really loving right now! I have previously mentioned that throughout my maternity leave that I started a journal for JoMarie. It was fun to document this special time in our lives for her and I have always loved to write. I want her to be able to look back someday and read what life was like for us when she became our first baby. There were many times throughout my pregnancy and first months with Jo where I wondered what those specific stages were like for my mom. So I wrote it all down for Jo and I…What Nick and I are like, who our friends are, how much love and support we had from our families during this time, what’s important to us, what some struggles have been, what we did with her in her first year with us, and just for her to see what a little miracle she was and is to us. And to be honest, my brain and memory has gone down the drain since having a baby so writing it all down for myself as well 😉
Writing in a journal for Jo to read someday has been fun, but it was time for a baby book!! As much as I wish I was creative and had unlimited time to sit and decorate the perfect baby book for my daughter, that just is NOT the case. I wanted a simple, cute, and special book to fill up! I received the perfect baby book from Polka Dot Print Shop and it is everything I wanted in a baby book and I have had such a fun time filling this up with so much goodness.
There are pages to fill in that I would have never thought of to add to her baby book and I am SO happy the book includes these pages. For example, there are pages for me to write our birth story and a also write a little note to JoMarie about our first moments together. There is also a page for Nick to do the same. Pages to tell her how Nick and I meant, our love story, how we reacted to finding out we were expecting this sweet little baby. They have literally thought of everything! There are also pages for each month where you can put the cute monthly photos and what stages your littles are at during that month. I fell in love with the style of these books and knew I had to share!
Polka Dot Print Shop also has toddler books and bump books that are so neat!! Welllll I know I have many mamas and expecting mamas who would love these books so for the next two weeks, you can use code MyGoodness to receive 15% off your book. You can find them in Instagram, Facebook, or right on their website. I know many of you will love these books as much as I do.
Have such a great rest of your week ladies!! We are taking a long weekend to soak up our last days of summer and I am really looking forward to some family time and relaxing! Thanks for stopping by today 🙂
