Recommendations for a beautiful fill-in baby book for new parents?

Artsy parents are about to give birth and forgot to research this along with all the other new baby gear. They're trusting me to find something beautiful. Any thoughts?

You might check Etsy, and seconding The First 1000 Days. I've seen that recommended a lot; apparently it has nice open-ended journal prompts.

I like Our Baby's First Seven Years, which has been around since the 1920s in various editions and the sale of which supports maternity research at the University of Chicago. The website is awful but the book is very nice and now comes as pages in a leather-bound 3-ring binder so you can 3-hole punch anything you want and add it. I have one for each of my kids, and I have the one my mom put together for me from the 70s.

I am (checking) THIRDING The First 1000 Days - I love Nikki McClure, and I get her calendar every year too.

I've always thought the Binth Baby Book was gorgeous. Covers birth through age three.
