I really like that idea. I plan on making a baby scrapbook that will have pics of the positive pregnancy tests, pics of my growing belly, sonogram pics, etc.

That’s a really good idea to make a little time capsule for things that happened the year baby is born.  I should do this too!


I have saved: pregnancy test, gendermaker test, all ultrasound pics, all test results, pictures of me every few weeks and starting at 18 weeks pics of baby bump each month, all of my bracelets from fun things I did while pregnant (in Jamaica) and some other things I cannot remember now.

@Beebug:  this is a great idea! my husband has an amazing baby book that his mother gave me to  “take care of” when we got married. I love the idea of putting things in there from the year they were born. May baby is due the very beginning of 2013 so i’ll have to wait on the coins haha.

Addie and Henri both have baby boxes in addition to their baby books; so far, I’ve put in:

newspapers from the days they were born

their newpaper birth announcements and the birth announcements we sent out to family/friends

other newspaper articles featuring them 

baby t-shirts they wore in the hospital

our hospital bracelets from their births

their baptism blankets and baptism gowns

I’m not pregnant, yet, but i’m going to take weekly pictures of myself for belly growing/showing reasons. I’m going to make a MyPublisher book & keep those pictures, as well as the reaction pictures of us announcing it, picture of pregnancy test, etc, in it. 

I’m also going to start a journal the day I find out i’m pregnant and right down any important things, like first kick, gender reveal, etc, and continue that until they graduate and i’ll give it to them then. Hopefully I can keep that up 🙂

As well as a baby book 🙂

I have kept some things, but I don’t know if I’ll give them to Emma/put them in her baby book or not yet:

  • Every hospital wristband I have from all of her dramatic scares! I have over 20 at this point!
  • What to Expect When You’re Expecting Tickets
  • A Few of her Glossy Ultrasound Photos
  • First Positive Pregnancy Test

I also want to buy one of those books that tells you what was popular and happening the year you were born (I have one from when I was born). The Hallmark lady said they’ll be out in September 🙂
