I'm planning ahead for some things I might want to put in my baby's girl's album. I'm going to get a local and national newspaper, but also wanted to list a few things about current stuff the day she's born.

Can you think of some things I could list? I was thinking stuff like the price of milk, bread, gas, movie ticket...but what else? I may not use them all but want to have a few things down. Current events will be in the paper I get, but is there anything else that would be cool to look back on?

Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!!

no 1 song, album, movies & movie stars that are big at the moment, trends which are popular at the moment, toys, clothes styles - hope that helps!

Since newspapers yellow with age I suggest you go to the newspaper's web site the day she's born and print out the headlines, etc. on good computer paper. (well...since you'll be pretty busy that day maybe a relative will do it for you).

Another fun idea is to list what jobs/professions her realatives have the day she's born.

I did a page like this for my dd ... it had different journaling cards on it ... one for prices of things, one for top tv shows, one for top songs, one for Academy Award winners, one for government (president, governor, senators), and one for top toys

it turned out to be a cool page

This is a bit different then what you are talking about I think, but as I'm currently working on creating a baby/growing up album of my husband to give to my MIL, I have a few suggestions for moms and moms to be. I was lucky enough to have in-laws that let me go through all of the photos/awards/memories that they had kept of my husband while he was growing up. I LOVE the fact that my MIL kept a written copy of Anton's firsts - first step, first word, etc. I love that she wrote down her view of the story of Anton's birth. I love that she wrote down funny stories of things like him carrying his 20 day old brother down a fairly steep set of stairs at age 2.5. I love that she wrote down some of his accidents and boo-boos. I'm having so much fun incorporating those things into his baby book!
