Ready for something insanely cute? I mean, so cute it’ll make you squeal “key-oooooooot!” and try to pinch your computer screen? Then check out this baby. So sweet it gives you a phantom toothache, right? Hey, you were warned.
Without naming names, I can tell you that the first glimpse of My First Three Months is sending the many proud new papas of Blurb scurrying to make yet another baby book. Modesty and a certain diplomacy prevents us from naming any staff baby books Blurb’s Book of the Week – the dog book rivalries around here are dangerous enough. But when we saw this book from wee publishing prodigy Nitya Peumans appear in the Blurb Bookstore, there was a chorus of cooing at Blurb HQ. And was that a sniffle I heard? From a hard-boiled engineer, even?
Well, I’m not one to mock. This book has awakened some serious auntie instincts, and inspired me to visit my friend’s week-old daughter with a digital camera in hand. If Nitya can make a 40-page book this a-freaking-dorable in three months, maybe it can be done in one? Let’s just hope the kid’s not camera-shy… we’ll get that baby published yet.
The one hitch to this master publishing plan is that I’m a writer, not a photographer. So all you Blurb baby book maestros out there: got any tips for your fellow Blurbarians on taking the perfect baby book cover shot, or any inspired prop suggestions? Do tell…
