[Nikki McClure] the first 1000 days

Nikki McClure, The First 1000 Days: A Baby Journal

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.

Size: 5.5" wide x 7.5" tall x .5" thick
Price: $12.95
Pages: 128

As a person who kept a journal since the first grade (though I have to admit that i didn't write every single day, but pretty much anything significant are well recorded in my journals), this baby journal just blows my mind. Once when my mom was organizing some old stuff in her room, I noticed an old notebook with my name on it. It wasn't mine. As I was about to take a peak inside, my mom abruptly took the book away from my hands and said, 'when you get married, I will give it to you, until then, hands off!'. wow. I had no idea. My mom kept a journal of me since I was born. It would've been a bigger surprise if I hadn't known such journal existed but still, I am very curious what she had written about me growing up. I guess I will find out in few years ;-P

this is how i want my picture taken

incredible (efforts to make it as real as possible) representation of klimt's ladies.... especially judith, her facial expression is so captivating... it's in between the real and the fantasy....  though the kiss is illustrated little too cute for me in the photos... mäda primavesi has strikingly familiar facial features but adele is too pretty... where's the portrait of emilie flöge?
