I purchased a ‘my first year’ book from you all for my Son. The theme was ‘Very Hungry Caterpillar’ and I have received so many compliments on this already! I love how it is personalized and there is an option to write in it as well as add your own pictures. We are having a little girl in September so I am looking forward to ordering hers!
