One line a day...

Our first week with baby Charlie flew by!
Everyone says it will go by fast so I want to cherish and remember every moment because I know I'll blink and soon he will be walking running through the house.

So, I've been using this memory book, Mom's One Line A Day, to record each day's exciting happenings (Charlie slept for 5 hours straight last night, we had our first lunch out as a family, turns out dad is better at changing diapers than mom, etc).

The memory book, which can be purchased here, is unique in that it only has space for you to write a sentence or two down a day (which is perfect for me because a. I don't really like to write and b. it's a manageable amount to record versus writing paragraphs each day).

It is also a five year memory book so that you can look back at one particular date over the course of several years and see how things have changed.

Speaking of Charlie...
This kid sleeps a lot (not complaining) so I was happy to be able to snap a picture with his eyes open!

Oh, and if you're not a mom, but like the idea of the 5 year memory book, they sell this one as well.

A quick thank you to Jenn from Clean & Scentsible for choosing our DIY bookshelves as one of her 11 DIY home projects picks from May's Inspiration Exchange!

Have a great day :)

  1. I have the non mom version but it's basically turned into the mom version because life naturally becomes all about the baby lol

  2. That such great idea. I started memory books with my kids, but always seemed to forget about them or write in them sporadically. Congratulations on the birth of your son.

    Thanks so much for visiting me! I'm so glad you enjoyed the patio makeover. The matches are from here.

  3. He is SO adorable!


  4. What a cute idea -- you don't need to spend more than a minute a day doing anything but admiring him! Congrats, what a beauty!

  5. He is just adorable. I am a new reader and 6 months pregnant. I just bought a bunch of copies of that book! What wonderful gifts for all my expecting friends. I swear something is going around because everyone I know is preggo! Thank you for sharing!

  6. He is just so cute!!! Congratulations.


  7. I am in love with your blog! So glad I just found you through the Inspiration Exchange. Big congrats to you. Love, love, love that picture of your sweet baby....he is so adorable! Made me want another one remembering how sweet they look in that newborn stage :) Off to look around some more...
