I'm working on a baby album for a friend and to paraphrase one of my favorite movies "I don't know nuthin about no babies" so I need some help.

I want to do a "Milestones" layout for all the firsts: steps, tooth, etc. Can you tell me what I'm missing, and can you tell me what order I should list them in?

Rolled Over
Sat Up
First steps
First word
First tooth
First Haircut

First food, first smile, first laugh and anything esle that stuck me as cute. I even have DD's first raspberry. Also I took a picture of her each month on the date she was born. Very cute idea to do for a friend.

Good luck!

First bath, Cruisn, check out the pics from Buffy's thread too. Some great ideas there...http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1455931

How about favorite toy or first toy? To be different - first night baby slept the whole night?

Yep, I got lots of ideas from Buffy's thread for pages. I should have been more clear - this is specifically just for a milestones page. I want to have a journaling block with
"First Steps ____________
First Words _____________"
etc in a list format for her to enter the info, and a few photo mats for whatever pictures she might have. What else would you put on that list, and I need to know roughly what order to list them? ie Do babies talk before they walk, etc?
