Once that diaper-clad darling is out and about, those firsts start coming faster than contractions that have just barely become a memory.
Instead of leaving baby's big moments subject to mommy brain, record them in grand style with the help of Mother Stork's Baby Book from Berwyn-based Kistner Supply.
Proven to be the ultimate in keepsake baby books (and let me tell you, the price tag is eye popping, but the heirloom quality makes every last pile of pennies completely worth it), this exquisite 1904-esque bundle brings together the best in classic design and traditional craftsmanship by means of archival quality, custom-made paper, gold foil stamping and linen cloth accoutrements.
Think of it as investing in a husband with hardbound covers (it's, ahem, a total keeper).
