Start this at birth, wrap it up at eighteen, fill it out each year in between.
This is not anything like a baby book. It's a birthday book! It was born from the simple idea that birthdays provide the perfect annual opportunity to preserve a sweet moment in time as your child changes from year to year. So it's a multi-layered confection: annual touchstone, cherished ritual, and eternal keepsake. This journal provides fun, fast, and casual birthday activities for ages 1-18 as well as space to stick birthday photos and a random picture from each year, amusing and thought-provoking questions to ask your kid, and a time-capsule envelope for stashing away odds and ends (artwork, school papers, hand tracings, birthday cards, invitations, and other memorabilia).
From toddler hood to young adulthood to every hood in between, you'll return to the same four activities for each birthday. The questions prompts, and tone may shift each year, but the essence intentionally remains intact.
"Great book for those who want a short, easy and fun way to track your child's development but doesn't necessarily have a lot of time. I loved that this tracks the first 18 years, not just the first five years like every other baby book. This is something they'll cherish when they're adults and bringing up their own children."
