Catholic Activity: Memory Book
Recording the many facts and figures pertaining to your child's spiritual and bodily growth will give you a reference book in raising future children and a way to remember your children's lives from the very beginning.
Precious facts that will become memories all too quickly fly by in the rush of the everyday activity of caring for your baby's body and soul. You will want to record these in a Baby Book before you forget them. You will want to remember the details of the baby's Baptism and his first visit to church. Already he has selected his favorite toy. He may have been on his first outing. It is well worth any extra effort to find time in an already crowded schedule to record briefly the details of your child's physical and spiritual growth. Such a document will become an invaluable source of information and joy. You will want to preserve it always as a Memory Book of some of your happiest years.
