Melany here. I have always loved the way that the Little Golden books looked and felt. Â Even the smell of the books brings back many memories from my childhood.
This particular Little Golden book was old and used but didn’t really have anything “wrong” with it. Â Honestly, the story was just a little strange and kind of boring and just wasn’t a favorite at our house.
I did love the color scheme and illustrations in the book and chose to turn it into something a little more useful…a baby journal. Â Using my box of scrap booking materials (no, I actually do not have time to scrap book if you are wondering) I covered up the text in the book with colored papers. Â I also added pieces of lined paper to the book for journaling. Â In the book I included the following topics: Â Baby’s birth, about baby’s name, baby’s “firsts”, growth and development, baby’s favorite things and baby’s first birthday. Â I also left designated space for photos of baby.
This small size of this baby book makes it un-intimidating, especially for a second or third-time mother.
