I am not exactly the scrapbooking type, but would like to have some sort of baby book equivilant for my dd. I didn't document things like first smiles, words, walking, etc with my 2nd dd and now that she is older and asks me I wish I had. So I dont want to make the same mistake with baby dd. However, most books I see start out with a family tree and that mostly bugs me. So does anyone have any adoption friendly baby books they like?

That's the one I got for my DS. I really liked it. I need to get another one for DD. I like that it can be used for older child adoptions too.

It's not pre-formulated, but I just put together a life book for my dfd who was with us for 2.5 years, the first 2.5 years of her life. I gathered photos of her life before she left us, went to Shutterfly and uploaded them, then added notations every so often. You can pick the layout/how many pics/details of each page, and it's really customizable. I got a 30% online code this past weekend, and I'm sure you could find one online. It's called a photo book. Shutterfly does really great work. Just a thought! Plus, it's less "hand" writing!

In looking through the various photobook options, I decided that MyPublisher has the best pricing and layouts (and ability to EDIT the layouts).
For dd, I've also been keeping a not-so-daily diary. I don't put things in every day, but when I do put something in I note the date.
