I am working on Joel's scrapbook before he comes because I know I won't have time for a couple of weeks after. But I am also making his scrapbook his baby book. I was trying to think of some ideas for the pages. I was looking at Luke's baby book and there is so much in there I never used.
Some page I was thinking of doing are:
page for his feet prints
First family picture
Coming home from hospital page
I don't know what else to come up with any ideas or suggestions???

I am doing the same thing, only with Xavier's book from when he was born. I actually went and looked up the family tree that was done on this board! Anyway, for Xavier's first year, I am doing some extra pages from his birth and before. I have his baby book and all, but like you, I haven't used half of what is there and it looks silly with empty pages. I put this together last night, so this is what I am doing:
Page about DH and me
Page about us together, like when we got married and things we have done
Before you arrived (when I found out I was pg, when I first felt him move, cravings, first things we bought, first appt, that sort of stuff)
Baby Shower (not going to be much since he was born before my shower)
Pregnancy Pages (two pages, basically just my belly shots)
Animals (the ones we had when we got pg and when he was born)
Letter from Mommy (I'd do a letter from Daddy, but he didn't write one)
Two pages for his arrival (this will probably be a two page layout with birth stats, the doctors name, the hospital where he was born and the few pics that were taken at the hospital)
Two pages from the hospital (including the bracelets and the card they put on his bassinet)
One page for his birth certificate and footprints
One page for his birth announcement
Watch Me Grow - Eating (his eating patterns, what he ate, when he had his first solids)
Watch Me Grow - Sleeping (sleeping patterns)
Watch Me Grow - Teeth and Stats (height and weight)
Watch Me Grow - Bathtime (couple pics from bath time and finny bath stories)
Watch Me Grow - Firsts (dates for milestones and a couple pics)
Watch Me Grow - Favorites (toys, colors, shows, people, etc).
