Hooray New Baby! is here to help you record the true story of your baby’s important first year, so memories are never fuzzy.
How few hours of sleep did you get the first week after your baby came home? Was your baby’s first Christmas a wrapping paper and sugar high–filled delight, or a toppled-over-tree and broken-ornament nightmare? The first 12 months of a baby’s life are precious and life-affirming—if you manage to remember them through the sleep deprivation, anxiety, and hours of advice everyone you’ve ever met wants to give you.
Thankfully, HOORAY NEW BABY! (Rock Point Publishers / September 11, 2018 / US $24.99) is here to help you record the true story of your baby’s important first year, so memories are never fuzzy. This baby book goes from being an exercise in maintaining your sanity to a sentimental keepsake of frank, sweet observations about that special first year of your baby’s life as you fill its pages.
This baby book, written and designed by illustrator Veronica Dearly, is filled with prompts and exercises that encourage you to write the story of your new baby. As functional as it is hilarious, Hooray New Baby! is a wonderful way to remember year one of parenthood, so you don’t lose it along with your mind.
