CHILDHOOD, A HISTORY
CHILDHOOD, A HISTORY
We designed this book for parents who want a simple, non-overwhelming way to capture the most meaningful moments from their child’s life.
The book’s prompts focus less on statistics and more on the heart - their ideas, passions, special talents, and funny quirks.
Spanning from birth to eighteen (including two pages for pregnancy) it includes yearly sections for birthdays, adventures, interests, and fun age-appropriate prompts.
Whether you’re a brand new parent or your child is a bit older and you want to “catch up” (it’s not too late!) this journal is designed to help you capture little windows into who your child is and who they are becoming.

Less statistics. More heart.
After feeling guilty about missing time-sensitive things in our own kids' baby books, we spent a year designing a book focused less on documenting statistics and more on the things that actually matter - the moments, memories, and unique insights that we’d want to cherish for years to come.
Didn't start at the beginning?
Niether did we! The good news is, this is the journal where (with the help of old calendars, social media, photo reels) going back is actually possible. And remember, it doesn’t need to be perfect! It just needs to be heartfelt.
Built to last generations.
The goal is for this book to become an heirloom that gets passed on to future generations. For this reason, these books are made entirely in the US and we personally oversee every step from sourcing, printing, binding, and fulfillment. The covers are 100% cotton and use no plastics or artificial coating. Each book is individually bound using the smyth-sewn method, making them extremely flexible and virtually indestructible.
No-hassle return policy
Not sure if this journal is right for you? We get it, sometimes you just need to have it in your hands. Go ahead order the book, open it, flip through the pages, and if you decide it’s not the right fit for you simply send it back using our return portal . We only ask that the book be in its original condition, and for a small fee of $3 to help with return shipping costs.
This baby book is absolutely perfect. Daughter in law picked this out to record new grandbabys life. It goes all the way through 18 years. The sections to fill out are thorough and quite sweet. Theres a family tree as well. Purchase & fulfillment were smooth, no issues. Great company. Would definitely recommend to any new mommy to record baby's history.
So easy to use!
This is a great way to capture all the beautiful memories without feeling overwhelmed. The format is very easy to follow. Put as much or as little as you want. The entire thing is so easy, you can’t not do it. I’m glad I’m starting with my newborn and will get one for my older daughter. It’s a wonderful way to recap and record all the memories that I will cherish in my heart forever!
A perfect way to keep your memories safe!
A beautiful book! Great website & quick delivery experience! I will be purchasing these for baby shower gifts from here on out. I don’t know why I ever bought anything else as gifts for baby showers!
Beautiful & Timeless
The purchasing process was easy and quick with Kept and in my search for something special to carry through my child’s life, Kept was the first book I found and I didn’t even bother to keep looking. The book really is beautiful, timeless, and in a world of flashy bright colored scrapbook type things, the Kept book is simple and I know will be cherished for years to come.
Perfect for those of us that didn't create a baby book while in the thick of the newborn stage but still want something to be able to pass on when they get older!
