It’s kind of a running joke that peoples’ first baby has a gorgeous, detailed, complete baby book and the second, third, and additional kids can barely find milestones jotted down among pictures tossed in a book that some well-intentioned mom promised herself she’d finish “later.”
I have to say that even though I started out strong with my firstborn’s (adorable) baby book, I found myself rushing to order pictures and put it together before his first birthday just to have it “done.”
Which is why, if and when my husband and I have a second kid, I’m going to give some serious consideration to an app called Qeepsake.
The app was created by Jeff McNeil, a man who has five children and therefore understands how time can be at a premium. He appeared on Shark Tank with the product last year to ask for additional capital, and you guys, you’re going to be glad he was able to keep going with this thing.
Qeepsake is an app that you install on your phone. The app texts you questions about your kids for you to answer, and you simply reply to the texts. The app stores the responses, and you can look up all of your entries on your phone or tablet at any time (and expand on them, if you want). You can also log milestones by simply sending a text.
Once you’re “done,” the app compiles a printed book for you, if that’s your jam, and you can order additional pages anytime you realize that there were still milestones you wanted to log down the line.
Easy, peasy. We all have our phones nearby. We all text. This app does the work of remembering the adorable and memorable things your baby, toddler, and young child do on a daily basis.
It’s not free, but it is genius. If you’re a busy mom who wishes she had time to journal, you just might decide this app is worth the money.
