Sep 28 2014 - 6:44am

When you're in the thick of those first few months, it seems impossible for a mom to ever forget that first moment she saw her baby, that baby's first laugh, first time sitting up . . . but time passes, life gets in the way, and memories fade. And that's when the beauty of the baby book comes into play. Whether you choose to document your child's first year in an old-fashioned book, an intuitive app, or simply by jotting down memories in a notebook [1], we're here to help inspire meaningful entries. Here, 50 moments of baby's first year that are worth writing down.
