Notes To My Baby - I Love You Already by Vesna M. Bailey is a non-fiction book for mothers-to-be with all the right elements to become a keepsake treasure for her child when they are old enough to appreciate all it entails. Chock full of crisp black and white photography illustrating children of different ethnicities and ages and laden with inspirational and loving quotes, Bailey has created a practical, artful, and expressive tome. Throughout the book there are lined pages for mothers to write their own notes to their babies, expressing their own love, which is preceded by a message or poem crafted by Bailey. This is the third book in the Notes series.
First of all, I have to admit that this book forced me to reach a bit deeper emotionally than I have when perusing similar books (mostly as baby shower gifts) over the years. More than anything else, it is a gentle nudge onto the reflective side of motherhood, offering a platform to write what she's feeling: the anticipation, the excitement, the hope, and the love she has for the child she will soon be bringing home. Even without a baby on the way, Notes To My Baby - I Love You Already by Vesna M. Bailey got me a little choked up. It's beautiful in presentation and thoughtfulness, and I recommend it to all who are having a baby or know someone else who is. It will hands-down be the go-to gift I pick up for expecting friends at their baby showers.
