Does everyone have her baby book ready? With ds, I didn't remember until really late, but this time I got it today. Which I guess is also really late, since I have less than two weeks to go! I just got a regular ol' fill in the blank one from Amazon. I'm no good at long missives, even though I'm an English teacher I just like to record all that relevant info so the child can look at it later and know that I cared enough to fill it all out!

My MIL filled out my dh's baby book, since he was her first. With my bil, she filled out the page with his name on it and nothing else! And she doesn't remember anything from his infancy, like when he sat up, when he slept through the night, etc. So sad. Anyway, I was determined that each of my children would have a completed (or nearly complete) baby book! I've been successful so far and I'm not gonna let this new baby girl down

The Nikki McClure one is pretty, but too open-ended. It's too much pressure - I'm all for fill-in-the-blank with the occasional free space, but give me too much freedom and it's hard to think of things to write.
