Beautiful Keepsake with Great Info
on February 25, 2004
I picked this journal up at a mall bookstore the DAY I found out I was going to have a baby. I was looking for a journal to keep thoughts in and also in which to write little letters to my future child, and many of the options on the shelf were more "fill-in-the-blank" style rather than having room to really express feelings and events.
This book turned out to be a sort of median between the two with places to fill in facts as well as sections where you can record your memos to baby. There also is a great organization of chapters interwoven with beautiful photos and places to store slips of paper, ultrasound pics, etc... Each trimester is divided into weeks and each week there is a little fact at the bottom about the development of your baby. In the front is an appointment reminder section divided into weeks along with a sheet for important phone numbers. There are sections to record people's reactions to the news, info on preparation for the entrance of the baby into it's new family, places to put name ideas, check-off lists of items to think about buying for the baby, the nursery, what to pack in the hospital bag, nutritional info, it's filled with facts and good information - stuff you might forget in the rush of things.
The little details are what make this book so special, and the design is superb, very feminine and elegant. I am extremely pleased and the journal will be treasured. I even plan to purchase it's companion, My Baby's Journal, when that time arrives! I highly recommend this to new parents as a perfect journal/organizer/keepsake for the early stages of the life of their new little one!
