We tend to document the arrival of a new baby from the moment it is born … but what about all the marvelous mini-milestones that lead up to the birth?  So often we forget that the essential part of the story is right there in our texts, and being the remarkable chapter that it is, it is equally deserving of being saved.


Your messages - sent and shared with loved ones during this special time tell the story of the extraordinary journey to motherhood, but it’s also the story that the baby, once grown, might delight in poring over, one day... More than a pregnancy journal, it might also be the perfect gift to celebrate Mother’s Day, or the perfect gift to celebrate the arrival of a best friend’s bundle of joy! 


Before you get started on this pregnancy journal or baby book, we invite you to explore some of our favorite themes that might be scattered through your chats and threads:  Simply scroll through your texts to capture what was said when….
