Soft and Sophisticated 5-Year Memory Book
You'll Love This Classic & Lovely Album
I had been searching all over the internet looking for a classic baby book for my soon to be born second child. I wish I had checked Hallmark to begin with. I forgot that I had gotten a really cute, great quality Hallmark album with my first born. I went in to Hallmark and was able to decide on this one very quickly. This book is really pretty and classic looking but not at all old fashioned seeming. It also will not look dated like many others that I've seen during my search. I think it looks better in person than in the few photos shown here.
The interior has an array of muted colors: cream, taupe, white, soft pinks, subtle greens and peach colors. It's feminine and pretty but not at all overpowering. There are butterflies, birds and lots of other pretty scrolling designs, polka-dots, leaves and floral designs.
There are individual pages included for hand and foot prints.
It also has a page with two velum pockets: one for first teeth another for first haircut.
In the very back there are two sheets of initials to customize the front letter pocket. I was thinking one could even do a sweet little baby photo there instead.
*for the person that asked if it has a page for each month of the first year: yes it does. Followed by single pages for each additional year up to five. It also has some pretty blank pages for you add whatever you like.

I had purchased another book for my daughter's second little girl. The pages were so cluttered and there were so many bold colors that it would fight for attention for the important pictures and memories. This book has beautiful muted colors which will show off the photos appropriately. The three-ring binder is perfect, because there are always things that are unique to a child that the book doesn't mention. Love this purchase.

Great memory keeper
For my son I received a very nice baby book from Neiman Marcus as a gift that I loved. For our twin girls I decided to look at hallmark for a more affordable option since I didn't get any as gifts. I actually like this baby book and the other version I bought just as much as my one from neimans. It has many more pages and little envelopes for first hair, tooth, etc. only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is because its section on 'rest of family' and info before birth is a little limited.

I LOVE IT!
It's beautiful and elegant, unfortunately you can see the entire memory book online, hope you can pass by any store and buy. I bought it for my daughter, but I'll keep it until she is a grown woman so she may appreciate better.
It's lovely!! Oh! I also like the part that you can customize it according your type of family, there are options that you can pick whether you belong to a two fathers family, two mothers family or even if you are adopting.
I love it
