A baby time book or another popular concept, a baby time capsule, is a great way of preserving all those exhilarating and fantastic memories. Most parents wish they could somehow capture and preserve those numerous breathtaking moments and sights. For a long time now, baby time books were the most popular way of doing precisely this. While it still is, baby time capsules are gaining in popularity.
A baby time book preserves your baby’s early history...
...and must be made as sturdy and properly as possible. Since this is so personal, don’t bog yourself down with ridiculous rules. For instance, you could devote an entire section of your baby’s book to growth measurements. A great time to record such development is the baby’s birthday. Accompanying pictures of height, hand and foot prints in different colors add depth and variety to boring numbers. These make such measurements come alive. It helps to treat such baby time books as personal art projects. You could personalize the decoration of your tiny tot’s book by enlisting his or her help. For instance, even though the baby may be too young to lend artistic input, you could use his or her tiny little fingers to paint the border of one of the time book’s pages. You have to keep adding photographs or other little articles as and when it strikes your fancy. If the things your baby has, that you most want to keep, are too large to be crammed into that book, you could still keep these little things alongside, in a larger container.
The whole point of time capsules is that you have to settle on a date, preferably something big like the year of reaching adulthood, when these can be opened. You can choose personal items to insert into the time capsule – things you’d want your child to delight in, all those years later. Things to put in that baby time capsule could be baby photographs, family details and photographs, newspaper from the date of birth and so on. Fancy baby outfits, after proper packing, could be used. Baby time furniture may be included, if small enough. Think of things that will make your child smile or be amazed, such as currency used at the time. An accompanying fancy scroll listing name, contents, unsealing date and the like is also popular. The whole point of such books and time capsules are so that you have precious memories that survive the test of time.
