My Quotable KidAugust 22, 2014 - Author: Amy
Junior is three and a half years old now, and I keep telling myself that I will get around to starting his baby book one of these days…
You know what else I don’t have? More than three or four pictures of him actually printed.
Isn’t that terrible?
So believe me when I say that when UncommonGoods contacted me about what they could offer by way of personalized gifts (and they have a LOT to choose from), I jumped all over it. Did I mention they have a lot to choose from?! I knew I wanted something specifically for my little guy, but you can literally find anything for anyone on this site.
I also want to mention what a cool company they are – Half of what you will find on their site is made by hand, most of their products are made here in the good ol US of A, and one-third of their collection incorporates recycled or upcycled materials. In addition to that, they donate $1 of every purchase you make to a non-profit of your choice! Since they began that program, called “Better to Give”, twelve years ago, they have donated over $700,000 to charities around the world.
I just love that you can get really cool items, and feel good about where your money is going at the same time.
I chose a personalized book called My Quotable Kid.
Aaaaand now you know Junior’s real name.
I got to personalize it with his name, but also his birthday and first words.
I have had so much fun with this thing! While I don’t take the time to glue pictures or hair in baby books, I have just made a habit of keeping this one handy to write down all the things he says that I never want to forget.
The very first one was perfect, because it is so his personality.
And each bubble comes with an area to add his age, when, and where he said it.
Most of them are funny.
Many have been just downright sweet.
And a few have broken my heart right in half.
I just love the glimpses of how his little mind works, and am so glad to have such a fun way to make all these memories of him.
Because who would want to forget gems like this?
Great, big, giant thanks to Uncommongoods for such a unique gift that is literally memories in the making!
