Keeping a baby book during your children's first years of life is a good one. Sure, it's nice to know how much they weighed and how long they were, but past their first few days at the hospital, how often do you remember to actually fill them out? All those blank pages? What do you write? These handmade (and eco-friendly) journals will help prompt the recordings of all those great memories.

Katie of Gadanke Big Cartel store has been hard at work making these guided journals. When you only have a few moments between naps, these small pages encourage you to fill them in instead of leaving them blank and 5 years down the road... wishing you hadn't.

Each journal is handcrafted from Italian patterned papers, American library cards, all sorts of tags, pockets, and envelopes — plus 100% recycled German and American paper. The book ring bindings makes it easy to add photos and postcards, organize to suit your story, and add more pages. You won't ever feel confined to the ideas at hand and each one can be fully customized for each child in your family.

You can pick one up for $18.00 in one of four colors at Gadanke.
