This is another item on the list that I personally own! This is definitely for a more advanced DIYer, as there are a lot of instructions… but I am SO happy that I cast my son’s tiny hands and feet when he was a few weeks old. I will cherish those tiny little fingers and toes forever 😍

Personalized Book To Mommy From Baby

Fill in all of the details for a fully customized book. This is a keepsake that mom will cherish and baby will love to read as he gets older. My favorite personalized book is this Dear Mummy book because it actually tells a story, and you can change both the name of Mom (Mum, Mom, Mommy, Etc.) and the name of the baby as well.
