Kikki and Franki is all about your little munchkins, so we thought it was about time that we wrote a blog post that was aimed specifically at them! Today, we are going to tell you all about the different milestone and keepsake products that we sell!
Why milestone and keepsake products?
At Kikki and Franki, we believe the best thing about life is making memories with the people we love. With smartphones, it is so easy to snap a photo and keep that memory digitally saved, but we wanted to provide something more than that.
Our milestone and keepsake products provide a traditional way of saving memories. They can be used in photos to make the memory incredibly special. In everyone’s life, especially a baby’s, every milestone should be celebrated, and our products provide the most practical and beautiful way to celebrate our little ones! With a baby, all the “first times” are so important, and are worth being treasured forever. Every month that goes by is such a sweet memory, and you get to share every sweet second with them.
With every milestone a baby reaches, we believe that it is a celebration for all the mommas out there! We know its hard. It is hard to get up everyday and have your tiny human depend on you. We know it is hard to feel like sometimes, your world is so small. We hope that celebrating your baby’s milestones reminds you that you are the world. You are the world that your little ones revolve around. You are their nurture, their home, and their comfort. You are everything to them. We hope that even on the hard days, that you can look back at all these milestones and remember how special you are to your little ones. You play such a huge role in their lives, so their milestone, is your milestone.
Ever heard that saying “Raising children is made up of LONG days and SHORT years”? Well, I never really understood this until I became a mom. Some days were so long, especially with Franki. She was severely colic for the first 8-9 months of her little life. She cried continuously, she never slept longer than 30minutes at a time both day and night, she wanted only me, and she literally fed off me 24 hours a day. They were long and exhausting days but then I blinked my eyes and my beautiful baby doll just turned FIVE! Just like that. I wish with all my heart I could turn back the hands of time sometimes just to get those baby cuddles and enjoy those “Oros Man” chunky rolls. It makes my heart so happy to look back at all my kid’s milestones that I documented for them (and me). We spend hours looking at photos and reading letters. They are so special. At the time, it was so difficult to find the time to document them between working full-time, sleepless nights, breastfeeding, mommy-ing and wife-ing but I am so glad I made the effort. Which is why I continuously develop new products for this range, they older my kids get the more special these precious moments become to me.
We have so many products to help you cherish these moments. Keep reading to see what milestones and keepsakes mean to Kikki and Franki!
