Fun Ways to Keep Track of Baby Milestones (that won't break the bank)
I have to be honest that I am the worst at milestone photos, albums, and everything in between. So, when Carolina was born I promised myself that I would get my act together and make sure to have memories she can look back on, as well as Sofia when they are older. There are so many cute ideas out there but we decided to share our all-time favs.
You can opt for a customized version, like our favorites from LP Original (shown below), or add a little something extra to the one you found on Amazon as we did. The ideas are endless but always fun to look back on as the baby grows.

Another great option are Shutterfly books. Krystal has made these for a variety of occasions and the best part is that they are super easy to make. Here's what one looks like and make sure to keep an eye on the Shutterfly page or Groupon because they are always offering sales!

These are always fun to have on hand if your baby hits a milestone when you are traveling or if you want to change the scenery and take it somewhere new! Our favorites were from Target by the brand called Milestone and here is how we used them for Carolina.
