Keepsake Journals for Mama and Baby from Belle & Grace Boutique

By Wednesday, July 18, 2018 32 No tags Permalink

It can be hard to find a baby book to record your little one’s special milestones. A beautiful family tradition, parents have been recording their baby’s special milestones like their first tooth, their first word and very first steps for generations.

With my first two daughters I could not find any milestone books that I liked, so ended up getting some very babyish ones containing only a few pages to record our special memories. For my third daughter I ended up using a notepad! (Though that could also be called ‘third-child-syndrome’!) Finding a stylish, classic baby journal seemed impossible.

Discovering that exact same problem and realising lots of people did too, Mama Kylie Skelly decided to create her very own range of Baby Milestone Journals and – quite cleverly – a Pregnancy Journal, at family business Belle & Grace Boutique with husband Colin.

The whole collection at Belle & Grace Boutique allows you to capture all your little one’s special moments from pregnancy right through to school, featuring a pregnancy journal, baby milestone journal, baby milestone cards, pregnancy milestone cards, my school years journal and a grandparents journal, ensuring keepsake journal for the whole family.

BABY MILESTONE JOURNAL

The Baby Milestone Journal is beautifully designed to ensure you capture every important detail to five years of age. Mum and Dad can use the prompts on each page to note details such as family trees, things your little one likes and dislikes, funny moments and special occasions. Fill your Journal with wonderful memories that you will treasure for years to come.

With plenty of space to add photos, precious keepsakes, and to note down any personal details, you could even present your Baby Milestone Journal to your son or daughter as a special gift one day. A stylish and timeless reminder of how special they are to you, then and now, and allow them to compare their own children with their development!

ABOUT BELLE AND GRACE

I had a chat to founder, designer and Mama Kylie about this gorgeous new range of Pregnancy and Baby Journal Keepsakes from Belle & Grace Boutique.

Why Did You Decide To Create Your Own Range of Pregnancy Journals and Baby Keepsakes?
After my daughter was born, like you, I spent ages looking for a milestone journal that I could record her special milestones in, and give to her when she had grown up.

Baby books are a vital part of who we are and capturing our identity when we are too little to remember or acknowledge it ourselves. We celebrate life’s milestones such as first steps, first word, birthday parties, loosing our first tooth, school graduations and transitioning to adulthood.

How Is The Belle & Grace Boutique Range Unique?

I wanted something that was stylish with a modern design. While I had found a few keepsake books out there, there were none that seemed to tick all the boxes with a modern, minimalist design. We wanted to offer the most elegant, yet practical keepsakes for parents, parents-to-be and anyone who has these people in their lives.

How Did You Come Up With The Belle & Grace Boutique Range?

I wanted something that my daughter and I would both cherish forever.  After speaking with other Mums it dawned on me that there were others who also wanted these items, but wanted them to be timeless, simple yet elegant, and practical. And that’s when it hit me: Why can’t I design a journal like that?! So that’s what I did!

Why Baby Keepsakes In Particular?

There is something really beautiful in capturing life’s little moments and memories that articulate who we are. However it isn’t just a rewarding experience for the recipient of the baby book, but even more so for the individuals writing the story as it unfolds. It is ironic that some of the best memories can be created whilst reminiscing and recording these milestones.

Why Do You Recommend Mamas To-Be and Parents Get A Baby or Pregnancy Keepsake Book?

kylieThe act of collating images and capturing memories in an album allows for these memories to be passed down through the generations. Whenever you decide to capture your little ones’ story, consider the importance of why you are doing it. Enrich the experience by doing it as a couple or as a Mummy and Daughter project with your bubs new Grandma. Enjoy creating new memories together that will last a lifetime for you and your little one!

When buying from us you are buying from me, a Mum who has put her passion for motherhood and beautiful things into each of her products. I sincerely hope you love our products, because I love making them!

    Such a great range of wonderful products at Belle & Grace Boutique!
    After reading your article and visiting Kylie’s website, I found out they are Canberra-based family business! So happy for them as a Canberran :)

    I am due 25th January 2019, with our first boy, the first grandson for both our parents, the first great-grandson for all of our grandparents after having lots of baby girls in our family! (Probably we’d better order Grandparents Journal from Belle & Grace Boutique very soon!)
    We just discovered baby’s sex yesterday and we’ve been over the moon since then.
    Can’t wait to document all the journey and adventures with my baby boy 😉
