Google Chrome Commercial "Dear Sophie": Dad Sends Emails to Newborn Daughter

By Stephanie Precourt |

How do you record your baby's milestones?

I must have missed it when it first made the rounds earlier this year but, via Twitter , I just caught the adorable tissues-needed Google Chrome commercial “Dear Sophie.” Follow along as a new Dad sends his baby daughter emails for each milestone, with photos and videos through the years. “I’ve been writing you since you were born. I can’t wait to share these with you someday.”


My parents kept a baby book for me, and I’m pretty sure their parents just wrote on the backs of photographs to note dates and ages. When I became a new mom, scrap-booking was pretty popular but never was really my thing. Blogging quickly caught for me, and I’ve never looked back. But sending emails to your child for them to read someday- or even just writing letters to them with pen and paper- I imagine that is an easy and fantastic, priceless alternative to blogging your child’s baby book.

So, grab some tissues and watch. How do you record your child’s milestones?

    I saw this a month or so ago, I love it. So so so sweet.

    I’m 34 weeks pregnant and I’m balling here. That was so sweet.

    Before each of my children were born I purchased a journal that I brought to the hospital to begin writing letters to them and to let their first visitors write a message to them. I’m all about blogging and using my Alphabitty Moments project to record memories but I think there is something very special about writing to my kids in my own handwriting. I write about their interests, accomplishments, my love for them, my hopes, my prayers….I try to write them each a letter every month on their special day (Sam was born on Oct. 13th so every month on the 13th is his special day).

    The letters aren’t just from me – daddy writes to them too.

    So sweet!

    I have a journal for each of the kids and try to write in it once a month (sometimes it’s more, sometimes a lot less).

    I wrote monthly letters to my first born. My 2nd born has them *almost* every month for the first two-ish years. My 3rd has maybe one a quarter. And poor baby #4 has a few measly blog posts. I really mean to get back to it, but we’re just so busy. For a while I would do “Sentences on Sunday” posts where I’d write a few little sentences to each child. But once again…it’s keeping up with it that gets me. (On the flip side, I have many more pictures of #4 than any of the others. So there’s that.)

    Got the ugly cry going on here. This is so sweet!
