    I've been into town this afternoon with OH and we bought a blank book so we can start writing things inside it and add photos etc for the LO. We've personalised the front with stickers and his name, but now we're struggling on what to begin writing inside!

    Can anyone give us some basic ideas on page themes that should definately be included?
    We've thought of a page all about mummy and daddy, and also for when we first found out we were expecting him!

    Need lots of ideas :D

    awww this is such a nice idea!
    i think ill have to start writing stuff down, otherwise ill forget! lol

    i saw an advert on tv where a father was writing e-mails to his daughter, and sending them to her, every year from the day she was born.
    always made me cry when i saw that advert!

    i would love to have something like that from when i was a baby.

    I have done one called before you were born...
    It has funny spirited about cravings and fainting etc.
    Also put pictures of her first pram, cot, nursery etc. in ad I have no idea what mine looked like do thought she might when she's older.
    Scan pics are in there and thoughts and feeling s too. There are pics of blankets and clothes people have knitted and pics from the baby shower.
    I love locking through it and adding bits, I have one that is pre done too that you just fill in, and it is lovely, but no where near as personal and special...
    Would recommend everyone do it! It kept me occupied at 3 am when I couldn't sleep... And I plan to do one each year and give them to her when she is old enough to start writing her own diaries and things!! Xxx
