“Baby Stories,” Ensign, Dec. 1991, 58
I want to remember all the “firsts” in my babies’ lives—times when they get their first baby teeth, take their first steps, and say their first words. But I want a record of other important events, too. So I keep a journal of their activities, just as they would for themselves if they could.
Each month I write a page with the accomplishments my baby has made, such as new actions and funny sayings. On the opposite page of the journal, I paste pictures of the baby and magazine articles that remind me of things he does.
When my sons want to curl up in my lap and read a book, I have one I know they will enjoy. This little journal has became a favorite for each one.—Teri Evans, Bountiful, Utah
