I stumbled across this book by accident when I was looking for a gift for my niece for her 16th birthday and had to treat myself and my daughter.

This IS not a baby record book. Customers who want a baby record book need to buy ... well a baby record book!

This book is split down in to sections for each year of your child's life asking the same questions each year so you can build up a picture of their childhood until finally you give them the completed book for their 18th birthday (... there's also a version if you have a son with the same questions in but with a more boyish colour scheme).

My daughter is four in a few weeks but luckily I've kept a Word doc with memorable dates and mile stones plus I have tons of photos and a photobook for each year of her life so I have been able to complete the first three years (birth to one / one to two and two to three) easily.

It has been wonderful looking back and I hope my daughter is pleased with the result.

There's a tiny space for the following questions :
A few of your favourite things
A few of my favourite things
Where we live
Who we live with
Ailments this year

Half a page for the following :
For the record (I've used this for Christmas no 1, top grossing film, football premiership winner, prime minister etc)
What you are like
Things you have done and said
Things that have happened in the world this year
Adventures we have had this year
Adventures I would love to have with you in the coming year
My hopes and dreams for the next 12 months
My predictions of what you will be like when you grow up

A full page for:
How I feel about our year together
A full blank page (I've used this to write extra bits and also printed out mini photos to stick in)

Plus space for a small photo

As you can probably tell I love to write but the amount of space you have to fill isn't daunting even for someone who isn't big on writing. Plus I've used small writing to squeeze more in but you can always use large handwriting to fill the space.

I think this is a lovely idea and it would make a wonderful gift to a mum with a new baby. Even when time is tight with a newborn you could jot notes on a post it for each section and complete the book at a later date when time isn't such an issue.

Off the back of this I've also bought "Dear Mum From You To Me" for myself to complete to give to my daughter and also one for my mum to complete for me (which will evensually go to my daughter) plus the Dad version for my dad ... much more writing required here and much more challenging questions but I'm looking foward to writing in mine and reading the books my parents complete.

All in all my daughter is going to have quite a bit of bedtime reading ready for her when she grows up.

Bought this for my daughter as it's a lovely thing to have when your older. My mum gave me a similar book when I turned 21. I still look through it now sometimes. This is well presented and I can't wait to start writing it.

Like the book but I don't like how throughout 'our first year' for example it has '1' at the top of each page where in my mind she's '0' and so on....the top of the pages are seemingly a year ahead

Love it. Really good memories for ur child. Keep a mini diary throughout the year and fill this in at the end of each year because u may forget some details but its beautiful. So nice to look at and asks appropriate things that anyone would want to know about their childhood. Deco something to give as a gift too.

I really really love this book, it is so well put together and it makes me feel emotional when I fill it out, it's such a good idea I wish my mum had done this for me, I will fill it out every year and I will treasure it until my daughter turns 18 and I shall hand it over to her.

Lovely book, I like how it is set out and easy to write in. It is in years so you can fill it in as you like or do it at the end of the year. Something nice to give my daughter on her 18th birthday or when she is pregnant in the future.

What a wonderful book!
I have been keeping a record of all the things my little ones do and say, but putting it all down in this book is wonderful. Such a sweet journal and a beautiful 18th birthday present for your little love

I really enjoy writing in this journal, it has great questions that mean we capture many of things our daughter does so when she is older, it will be great for us to enable questions like "what was I like as a baby?".
