As a photographer, I’ve gotten pretty good at documenting my boys with my camera on a regular basis. But what I’m not as great at is remembering to capture those super special moments. You know the ones – like the first real smile or the first time they sleep through the night. All big deals, but hard to remember the specifics as your baby grows. While I probably have photographed most of them over the years, I can’t really tell you which images are those exact moments. This is one of the things I love about Milestone. They totally understand the importance of preserving special moments so that you can remember them for years and years.
Milestone makes these photo cards that allow you to document all your baby’s “firsts”. That’s why I’m so excited about their new Special Moments Booklets. These packs are extras to their regular sets (which are pretty inclusive to most firsts you’ll encounter). They’re designed especially for celebrations and adventures that are most important to your family. Like the Outdoor Moments booklet is great if you plan to spend a lot of time outdoors with your baby. I wish we had their new Travel Moments booklet a few weeks ago – we took Caleb to visit my family in NYC for the first time and we did three of the “firsts” in this booklet. While I have photos of our trip, it would have been great to capture some of those firsts with the photo cards.
There are eight new booklets in this collection. Each one has a series of six different photo cards you can tear out and photograph with your baby. There’s also a spot on the bottom of each card where you can write in the date. I feel like this is the equivalent of all my childhood photos where my mom would write the date on the back of a photo. Since we live in such a digital world, this is a great way to remember when things happened. And if you do print out photos for a book (which I highly recommend), these cards can easily be slipped into a photo album alongside your photo. Or placed inside of a memory box of keepsakes.
In addition to the travel and outdoor booklets, there are also booklets for first holidays, celebrations, Christmas, foodie moments, first birthday and fashion moments. You can find all of them here.
Speaking of fashion, though, you know that I can’t help but love this set. I’m all about kids fashion, especially when it comes to baby things. And fall is my favorite season. Now that it finally feels like fall around here, we can delve into some fall fashion with some of our favorite brands. Caleb not only wore this particular outfit to his first pumpkin patch and fall festival, but it’s also the day we discovered his first tooth!

You can find all the new Milestone special moments booklets here. They’ll be available for purchase starting October 23rd. I think they’re really great to have around as you experience all those first with your baby and I think they’re an awesome baby shower gift idea too!
