Nikki’s beautifully detailed illustrations divide this lovely baby journal into sections celebrating the first 1,000 days of life, from the story of birth to jumping into her first mud puddle.
Modeled after the journal Nikki herself started when she had her son Finn, the sections focus on recording a child’s interaction with the natural world, including baby’s first tree, moon, and garden.
Perfect gift for the expecting mom or dad, with pages of illustrations and ample room for notes and note-taking about baby’s firsts. This is the baby-book you’ve been wanting.
