Before my little one was born I was very conscious about creating memories of my whole pregnancy journey so it's something we can look back on later in the years. Soon as I found out that I am expecting we started taking photos of the bump most weeks on the camera and using my Fuji Instax Mini. My Instax is an old version and I must have had it for around 5-6 years now before they started selling them in UK. If I remember right I actually purchased mine from a Japanese seller on ebay and at the time it was the limited edition because it's Hello Kitty. The reason for taking them on the Instax is because I wanted to create a book of some sort with all the little details in. I spent quite a bit of time online looking for the right baby book and I ended up picking Eric Carle's Hungry Caterpillar because it was one of my favourite books growing up. We have all read the Hungry Caterpillar right!!
You can purchase this from Amazon for £11.95
"This very special keepsake baby book is the perfect way to record all those important first occasions for a newborn baby: from very first steps, to first teeth and favourite colours. With stunning illustrations from Eric Carle's The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other favourite stories, there is room to record memories and personal details, as well as spaces for photographs and special envelopes to keep precious mementos. A delightful gift for any new parent to treasure."
I stuck an envelope at the back of the book and put all these cards in for safe storage.
We have also been busy snapping away taking photos and I am always conscious of losing the photos since it's all digital so I decided to get them all printed through Cheerz. All the photos were saved on my ipad so it was easy enough to download the app apple / android and load up all the photos for printing. The app is so simple to use, all you need to do is go through your gallery through your app and select the photos you want to print, make payment and enter your address and it's done! I was kindly gifted one box from Cheerz but I liked it so much I ordered another box of 170 photos myself the next day. I have a discount code to share with you all if you are interested which gives you £4 off code: ONESGP I love boxes these prints come in and they are great for storage, I will be ordering another box in 2 months time for my next load of photos!!
