Baby Keepsakes Ideas
I’ve had a terrible case of “writter’s block” this past week which lead me to facebook for suggestions for this weeks blog. My cousin Austin (also known as my best-est ever-est cousin in the whole wide world hehe) commented with the idea of There are so many new mommy’s (and soon-to-be-mommy’s) like me that I thought of making this weeks blog fun and beneficial just for you hot mama’s out there! Ever since Ellyse was born I have been obsessed with keepsakes! I would save everything she ever touched! lol. I’m big into scrapbooks but never really find the time to sit down and work on them and kinda find it boring at times. I started looking for better ways to preserve all of Ellyse’s baby Items. I will be sharing 10 fun and unique keepsake Ideas I am currently doing for Ellyse and some cool ideas I’ve come across!!
I would have posted her letter here on my blog, but I feel it is something close and personal I prefer Ellyse to have all to herself! In my very first blog post, “The Story Of Sweet Ellyse” I mentioned that I did not have any future plans for her (Because she was meant to be a boy) and that I felt guilty about it. I feel this is a great way to redeem myself. I plan on writing a yearly “goal letter” to her as she grows. Writing her letters as she grows, gives me the chance to reflect on many memories I am sure to share with her as she matures into a young woman. This will give me the opportunity to write about her hobbies and whatever sports she was interested in that specific year and I could maybe predict future goals for her in the following years to come. Even if it’s a small prediction of her being a ballerina or the next Misty May (Famous beach volleyball player). Of course she wont be able to read these letters until she’s 18 years old. This ensures that I am able to voice my goals and dreams for her in private, and avoid pressuring her to live by them.
