When I was pregnant with Holden I knew I wasn't the baby book type. I just couldn't picture myself keeping very good records of milestones and I knew I would feel awful about myself if I left it only halfway filled out. I used a box instead for all the pictures, cards, first booties, lockets of hair and what not that a baby collects. I may not remember every first, but I decided for me that was better than a book with just the first page filled out.
The boys love to get these boxes out. I will admit there is considerably more in Holden's box than Asher's. Poor Sloan may wonder if anyone noticed he was even born, but I try to get the basics in there.
I made a memory box as a gift for an upcoming baby shower. She might be a book person...she might think I'm crazy for being a box person...it's her first baby so maybe I'll help her make up her mind.
