Does your child(ren) have actual traditional baby books?

My 2nd baby I never even bought one, lol.

1st born I did a hardcore pregnancy journal and then 1/2 the baby book. (2nd half is blank/empty and sad looking)

  • I have done a baby book for all three of mine. And pull them out every so often to update them.

  • All my children and all my grandchildren have them. I was always so sad that my own Mother never got past putting my birth info in mine and a card from my 1st birthday. I was determined they would have a complete book....and they do.

  • I tried doing baby books and I never kept up with them. I started writing journals to my kids and so that is what I do now.

  • Yes. My son has a general one but with our daughter she has a more detailed one as I really enjoyed writing everything down. :)

  • The only book I bought when I was pregnant was What to Expect When Expecting. It actually helped me out a lot. I kept (and still keep) a regular online blog; I documented different parts of my pregnancy on it.
