So happy to hear this! Thank you!
Bought for my Sister-in-Law
The book arrived in bubble wrap packaging with one piece of thinner cardboard to help it keep shape in the mail. It did so well in the mail-no wrinkled corners on the cover or anything! The book itself is well-organized to follow the child as he or she grows up. I love that there is a page dedicated to the parents before the child is born. The pages are heavy, glossy, and a darker color. This is not a pastel baby book. Pencil will not be a good medium for this book. You definitely want to use an ink pen or sharpie marker. I would be hesitant to use a gel or felt-tip pen as they have a higher chance of smudging. Overall, I think this will be a good book for my Sister-in-Law and her husband as they get ready for their baby to arrive in June. However, I wish there was a lighter colored option.
