My husband came across this book in a kitchy little bookstore before Brayden was born. It quickly became a fun project for us to work on with his big sister.
She was excited to answer the questions, help glue in the photos,
and draw pictures for her soon-to-arrive little brother.
The first part of the book takes you through the thoughts of the big sibling before the new baby arrives. Then continues on through the first year of the baby's life, interviewing the older sibling, marking milestones, keeping track of the differences and similarities between the kids.
I loved putting in the ultrasound photos.
I had to dig to find Aliyah's, but look, my kids are twins!
Of course, this is what she thought of the image.
I could seriously look through this book all day. It's addicting.
She loves filling in the pages, and can't keep from looking at all the pictures. And I'm sure someday, in a couple of years, when she's making her brother help clean her room and he asks why, she'll be able to say, "Because I spent an ENTIRE YEAR OF MY LIFE making you a book."
