baby book?


Mother Stork's Baby Book is the baby book of my dreams but it costs almost as much as my crib did, bless its heart, and we have a grad school budget. Does anyone have a favorite baby book they recommend? I want to get one asap so I can get his little handprints and footprints recorded while at the hospital---not to mention the doctor's and nurse's autographs. Imperative.

i vote you make your own. heaven knows you have the creativity and then some. also, it means you can tailor it exactly to your wants.

ps: where did you end up finding your crib? we have a co-worker who is expecting and looking for cribs. jamie and i both thought you were the woman to ask.

hello ali!
i stumbled upon your your blog one day and it inspired me to start my own blog.

anyway, i dont know if you've heard of blurb before but its an online self publishing service. if you wanted to make your own beautiful baby book i would recommend it.

did you get the stokke sleepi? if so, i'll be super jealous!!!

jill said...

haha, guess that's a no, i just saw how much the book cost. the stokke is wonderful, but i'm thinking we'll stick with ikea for a crib.

The baby book by Binth is really beautiful however, it's a little pricey as well although cheaper then then one you're eyeing up. It's the one I'm dying to get.

Get a vintage one on Ebay. That's what I did for my youngest. I think It was like $5

I know this is a late comment, but I was given the Nikki McClure baby book your first commenter mentioned, and love it, but bought a vintage unused one on ebay for my first boy. The middle two just have journals. Whatever you end up doing will be special, I am sure.
