    This is the ultimate gift for a new mom! I was given one at my baby shower and read it cover to cover the same day. The information is so helpful and encouraging. I had so much fun each month adding our pictures to it and documenting my daughter's growth and development. I liked it so much, I had a special book made as a continuation book from age 1-3! You cannot go wrong with this!

From the foot of Pikes Peak, A Book to Celebrate Baby

As I was completing my nursing career in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, I wrote an article for a nursing journal on one of my passions: helping parents to hold their tiny babies skin to skin. To my surprise, it won first place for "Excellence in Writing Award". This inspired me to follow a path that indulged my love of both babies and words. With the dream of an educational and elegant baby book in mind, I bought a computer, learned page layout, and began experimenting with papers, adhesives, techniques and sizes. I found an amazing Japanese import shop in Chicago that specialized in book making supplies and learned some important lessons from the gracious staff there. Critiques from my own children as well as my first customers led me to add more pages about the parents, lots of pages for pictures, a focus on the first days and weeks and tips on parenting. I keep up with researched based infant topics and update the book to give the most accurate summaries and interpretations possible. Most of all, I have really enjoyed the little glimpses into my customers' stories.

I love babies and have spent my career caring for the littlest ones. I'm fascinated by the baby and parent relationship, infant capabilities, sensory sensitivities and development. To me, the biology is poetry. I have tried to present all that I've learned in these one-of-a-kind baby memory books with a special PREMIum edition for the preterm newborn.
