Read an Excerpt

On the night you were born,

the moon smiled with such wonder

that the stars peeked in to see you

and the night wind whispered,

"Life will never be the same."

Because there had never

been anyone like you . . .

ever in the world.

    Beautiful and Touching....

    I selected this while my baby boy was still in the NICU - I had taken a break from the hospital in search of something to keep me busy and pass the hours while he tried to get well enough to come home. We were not in our hometown, and it had been a long haul. I browsed through some of the baby books and finally saw this one - and some of the quotes in it brought tears to my eyes... I knew it was the one - because it stresses the differences in all babies and the beauty in that! I will be giving this as a gift to all my friends who will be new moms! I feel like it highlights the important stuff, and keeps it simple enough that a new and very busy mom can complete it easily!

    Beautiful!

    I love this baby book so much! It even matches my baby boy's nursery! I just wish it went all the way until he started school (5 or 6 yrs)
