There are a lot of firsts packed into a baby’s initial 365 days.
Spend too much time documenting the details and you’re likely to miss out on something big. (Is it just us, or did that gurgle sound like M-O-M?)
Get your nose out of the baby book and take a look at the Paloma Poster, an infographic of baby’s first year that presents the mounds of data you’ve accrued as a work of art. Designer Chase Simmering’s inspired print hits all the high points (Halloween costume, favorite foods, places visited), distilling the complex maze of moments and memories into a visual gem.
Available in color schemes of aqua, peach, and white, the basic version comes with eighteen personalized fields. Got more to share? Add a dozen customized icons and a silhouette of your little looker.
Think of it as a symbol of your love.
