Ashley Mozingo

Hi everyone! My name is Ashley, and I am a stay at home mom to two girls, Paislee, 3 and Keely, 1. My husband is in the Coast Guard, and is currently stationed at a Coast Guard unit on Camp Lejune. We have been married for five years now and have spent two of those years in Alaska, where Paislee was born, and two in Maine, where we had Keely. We were lucky to get stationed here in 2012, and call North Carolina "home". We were both born and raised in different cities in eastern North Carolina, and we are super excited to get to spend some time here with our girls and introduce them to some of our favorite places that we had as children. Before I met my husband, I attended East Carolina University, where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Communications. I have a love for writing, and a huge passion for being a mom, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to write about my experiences and exciting moments of this rocky ride that we all call 'Motherhood'.

Do You Keep A Baby Journal?

The exact journal I have for Serophina!

In this day and age there is an abundance of journals. They come in every color, shape and form that you could ever imagine. You can have them made to look really professional like a published book complete with photos and delicate print. Or you can choose many of the hundreds available where you can write your own thoughts in your own handwriting.

Last weekend we had a garage sale and I had to go through our giant armoire full of books so I could pick out the ones I wanted to sell. I came across the baby journal that I had gotten for Serophina when she was little. It’s an organizer and a keepsake book that has little pockets for memorabilia and each year has categories for birthdays, favorite things, the world around you, etc.

As soon as I came across it, I had to sit down and flip through it. I was filled with warm fuzzies as I read the description I had written about the day we brought her home and other heartfelt moments. Unfortunately, I had only filled out a small portion of the book and so most of it was empty.

Now that she is four and a half years old, I wish so badly that I had recorded every detail of when she was a baby and toddler. I am proud of myself for starting the book, but somewhere along the way it got lost in the shuffle of daily life and was left unfinished.

I will try my best to record more for Saioa’s baby years but knowing myself, the same thing will probably happen. Maybe I should set aside a block of time every month to write in Saioa’s baby journal (which I have yet to buy).

Do you have any ideas for keeping up with a baby journal?
