Congrats! As for the baby book, I have one called Precious Little Wonder and you can remove pages from it if needed (for example they have a section on adoption if you've adopted a baby and I just took it out). Howerver, have you thought about putting Dad's info so that DS will know who he is??? I don't know your history with him... but it might be nice for DS later on...

Anyway, that's not the point here... YAY YOU'RE HAVING A BOY!!!!

Congrats. As far as the book goes I would check Halmark or some other card store and just flip through all the books and see if you can take that page out. You may also be able to find something online. However, you may want to keep that info in there "just in case". A friend of mine broke up with her bf when she was preg and they didn't talk until the baby was born. She called him from the hospital to tell him she was in labor. Seeing the child they created together being born they decided to start talking again even if it would just be a friendship. They ended up working things out and are now going to get married.
Good Luck to you!

Congrats. I am also having a lil boy. You can make your own baby book and just put in your own info. I haven't found one I like and thats what I am going to do. It might be a lil more expensive to gather different things. But I think its more special and definetly worth the extra cash.

Congrats! Boys are so amazing, my son stole my heart when he was born!

As for the whole father thing, this is only MY personal opinion, but I think your son has a right to know about his father, and not including him in your AND his son's baby book isn't right. As horrible as he may be ( I don't know your history) that doesn't mean he shouldn't be included in your son's life, and your son may grow up and wonder why you kept the info from him and be angry (a friend of mine had that same experience and was very angry with his mom over the whole deal). Just sharing my experience with you, but I hope it works out! Best of luck to you!

Not to sound pissed or anything...b/c I am not. I just want to let everyone know why I dont want his info. in my sons baby book...for starters I dont know it, I have no idea about his family, and until my son gets old enough to understand the entire situation...the father wont be in his life as far as i am concerned. Father of my son or not...no one who wants me to have an abortation,and hopes we die during labor (told me 2 my face less than a week ago) will not be around my child, or near my son until he changes or my son gets old enough and wants to meet him. I will not bad mouth mitch to my son, or tell him what a horrible person i think he is...when he meets his father I will let him form his own opinion.

Not trying to be the mediator here, but I don't really think people meant to jump on the fathers side. They just didn't know the entire situation. I don't think these ladies are quite that judgmental...or don't mean to be. My oldest 2 children are from a previous marriage and my ex lost all of my respect in a short period of time. He had a child from a previous relationship, but the mother moved away and all he could do is run her down and say it wasn't his anyway. Well, if it wasn't his kid I understood why he was so bitter...she was saying some bad stuff about him. But, when the state forced a DNA test and at 4 years of age she was proven to be his, he lost it. I told him that our children deserved to have their sister in their lives. He agreed to let her come to our house and stay for a week, she was 6. I loved the kid, she was great. He worked nights and wasn't around much. I could tell he didn't really care. After she left he started commenting on her mother and how he wanted her to have an abortion, he didn't want to have that baby anyway. I couldn't believe my ears! This was his own flesh and blood. He later made a comment about how he could care less if they were killed in a car wreck. Let's just say, I was gone within the week. Nobody should have a heartless idiot like that for a father! He had my kids every other weekend (they were 5 and 2 at that time). That lasted for about 2 months and then he was already expecting another kid and had "dumped" mine. It was 4 years later before I ever heard from him again. He called and wanted the kids. My son (the youngest) wanted to go, my daughter did not. But she went so she could "keep an eye on her brother". I didn't approve of it, but I let them. It killed me. They came back and my son is still seeing him, whenever it fits into his busy schedule. My daughter refuses to go. She is 14 now and my husband of the last 7 years is her daddy. She will tell everyone, including her birth father, that she already has a dad and doesn't need 2.

Trust me, the kid will see straight through the man if he doesn't straighten up. And although letting them learn it on their own is hard, it is the best way.

I hope he comes around for your baby's sake, but if he continues his ways, he is better off away. Unfortunately be prepared, the court system is brutal sometimes. I doubt he'd even try it if he is such a jerk.

Sorry to be so long, I just wanted to let you know I've somewhat been in your boat. What goes around comes around for those guys!
