    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
    Crawled
    First steps
    First word
    First tooth
    First Haircut

    Thanks!

    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!

    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?
