Baby journal

Looking for recommendations for a nice baby journal - I have very good intentions to keep some kind of diary of becoming a mum and recording firsts for my baby etc. I'd like one that has free space to just write day to day entries but that also has some prompts for recording key bits of info (otherwise I'd just get a blank notebook). I don't like really twee things. Does anyone know if this exists?!

Any budding journal keepers out there? Smile

I set up an email address when my son was born, so I can email him from anywhere and send him photos etc. I intend to give him the password when he goes to secondary school.

I bought a nice notebook with acorns on in from Wilkinson of all places and some pregnancy milestone cards and made my own. Pregnancy brain meant I lost it about 6 weeks ago so I have some catching up to do!

I've just got a black spiral bound sketchbook from paperchase, it ties together with a black ribbon so looks quite nice. I've been sticking in a polaroid of my 'bump' every two weeks (only 8 weeks so not anything to see really yet!) along with early scan pics and a list of names I've been adding to.
