so if you don’t already know by now, we are expecting baby number two early January and this go around I promised myself that I would be better about documenting it. I didn’t actually document much with my first pregnancy and I can’t even tell you how many times, these past few months, I’ve tried to think back on how I felt, the weight I gained and even what I looked like pregnant. I didn’t take a ton of photos and this time around I’m trying to be better about documenting these precious nine months!
To help me document this pregnancy and even keep me organized, I’ve been using this super perfect and quite handy little journal from Pearhead. This journal allows you to document it all, trimesters, pre baby, post baby and even things I hadn’t even thought about writing down, which I love! Someday I’ll look back at this little journal about probably get a few laughs out of some of the stuff that I’ve wrote down… Like the massive cravings I’ve been having or the fact that I managed to put on 7 pounds in the past month! 😉
To keep all of my ultrasound photos organized, (I’ve had three so far), the journal has these awesome little folder pockets for each trimester to store them in, along with anything else you would want to tuck in there. I had a box that I kept all of my stuff with Asher in and I so wish I would have had something like this four years ago! It’s handy, keeps my photos organized, and protects them from getting wrinkled! I love that I’m not always digging to find them and I can just pull my journal out for a quick look or to write down some of my thoughts! i’m excited to document the rest of this second pregnancy of mine. I’m already six months along and my goodness is time flying! Someday when this little guy is grown, I thought I may even pass this little journal down to him for a keepsake… Until then, I’ll tuck it away on my shelf and pull it out when I want to reminisce about this little short, but oh so precious time in my life. I’m grateful to be documenting this second pregnancy!
Stay tuned! I’ll be sharing more fun keepsakes!
a special thanks to Pearhead for collaborating with me on this post!
