1: Once upon a time, there was a beautiful baby boy who was welcomed into the world by two loving parents and their family and friends...
2: Precious memories and keepsakes in a book, they melt my heart every time I look. Once a tiny baby growing way too fast, what can I do to make these moments last? Save a little treasure write a little note, knowing someday you’ll read what I’ve wrote. Precious memories and keepsakes in a book, you’ll see my love when you’re old enough to look.
