Your baby boy's first year is something that you're going to want to remember forever. But it's also going to be one of the busiest times! As much as you want to scrapbook about it, you might be a little too busy to do it right. You need a way to store your pictures, keep them safe, and still be able to show them off in the meantime.
That's why it's a good idea to use a baby boy photo album
until you have the time to scrapbook the way that you want to. As you get your pictures together, try to write down how you will want to use them. This way, when you put your scrapbook together, a lot of the planning is already done.Memories to Cherish
- Document your baby boy's arrival at the hospital. Talk to someone ahead of time to make sure that you can get pictures of those first few hours. It might also be nice to have pictures of friends and family— and maybe even some of the doctors and nurses!
- It seems to go without saying, but you'll definitely want some pictures of your baby boy's first bath. Make sure you get some pictures of him in the water, and some pictures of him in his towel, as well. You can save these pictures in your baby boy photo album until you're ready to scrapbook with them. Consider adding a little bit of writing about his first bath. You'll probably want to remember his reaction to feeling the water for the first time!
- It's a year of firsts, and you'll want to make sure you catch all of them. One of the most exciting moments in your baby boy's first year will be his first encounter with baby food. It's also a really great photo opportunity. You'll want to catch his initial facial expressions— and don't forget to get a few pictures of the mess that's sure to follow. It might also be a good idea to hang on to the label of the baby food and store it behind one of the pictures in your baby boy photo album until you're ready to scrapbook.
- Your baby boy's first Christmas is something that you could devote an entire scrapbook to if you wanted! With that in mind, it might be a good idea to get a separate baby boy photo album to store pictures from his first Christmas. Be sure to get pictures with Santa, and a few with other members of your family. Depending on how old you baby boy is when Christmas rolls around, you might be able to get a few pictures of him opening his first present. Hang on to some of the wrapping paper and Christmas cards. You'll be able to use all of these things when you're ready to make your scrapbook.
Your baby boy's first year is an exciting time that you'll want to remember for the rest of his life. Keep those memories in a safe place until you're ready to scrapbook. Using a cute baby boy photo album is a great way to store the pictures— it's the kind of thing you'll want to show off!
