Whether it’s their first smile or first birthday party, there are so many milestone memories we want to cherish with our baby, especially in their first year. And while we can scroll back through our camera rolls and look back at our Facebook memories, there’s nothing quite like having a keepsake memory book to look back on when we want to remind ourselves of how little they once were.
