    Cute Title Page

    Design by Erica Hernandez

    Sticking to a neutral color palette will ensure that the album works for either gender. After the baby is born, print his or her name, date of birth, time of birth, weight, and height on a piece of cardstock. Add a picture of his or her first night.
