Share “My First Valentine’s Day” – A free printable by Milestone Baby Cards!

We love Milestone Cards over here at Modern Kids Design and wanted tell you a bit about this cool “mompreneur” company. You can spread the joy of your baby’s milestone-worthy moments with Milestone Baby Cards, an adorable set of developmental milestone cards for your baby to hold while you write in the date, snap a photo and store it in an album or share it with your family and friends. If you’d like to see pictures of how it works, you can see them here in the photo section.


While updated, this post is actually a”re-post” of one that we published earlier. In the midst of all of our website changes lately, we lost that one so here we are…..But what better way to bring a smile to someone’s face than through a photo of your adorable baby, photographed proudly clutching a card reading “Today I Sat Up For The First Time”?


The forward-thinking mommy behind the Milestone Cards is Holland-native Gemma Broekhuis. She wanted to capture the first time her baby Mikkel rolled over, so she made a makeshift card of her own documented with the milestone and date and took a photo of her baby boy with it. She followed this practice with other milestones her baby reached including the first time he slept through the night and the first time he ate solid food.


Recognizing how easy it was to forget all those joyous moments, Gemma set off to make her very own Milestone Baby Cards into a product for every proud parent to use. Now Milestone Baby Cards are sold in over 15 countries. Produced in Belgium, the cards, box and displays are all printed on FSC certified paper with printing ink derived from vegetable oils. Choose from 25 beautifully illustrated first-year milestone cards including “Today I Smiled For The First Time,” “Today Is My First Birthday” and “Today I Said Ma-Ma For The First Time” to capture a treasured moment for times to come.


Before singing off today we want to mention that Gemma was kind enough to offer a free Valentine’s Day printable  from Milestone Baby Cards which you can download at home. So, click here For My First Valentine’s Day!


We hope you like the cards and if you’d like to see the full set, you’ll find them on sale here during this holiday weekend with more sale items coming soon.


Recently, Milestone Cards came out with Milestone Pregnancy Cards. We love input and welcome feedback so if you think we should carry those lovely cards as well, feel free to email us at and let us know.


Finally, last but not least, if you’d like to learn more about the mom behind the brand, check back soon to read our interview with the founder. We had a few questions for Gemma and she was kind enough to answer them. As always, thanks for reading and Happy Valentine’s Day!
