May I Take It Home Please?

A neighbor of my daughter's in Atlanta gave her a baby gift that I would love to take home with me......

A vintage baby book written by Dr. Allan Roy Dafoe, who delivered the Dionne Quintuplets.

The book came in it's original box.The box is not in very good shape, but the book is perfect!

A satin fabric cover
and amazing images inside

The baby book has many more images...too many for one post. I will post a few more tomorrow. Please feel free to download them if you so desire.

My plan is to take the book to Kinkos and make copies to take home with me....I'm pretty sure the book will be staying in Atlanta.



  1. Such a precious book Chris!! Love the sweet images!! Hope you're having a great day!! xo Heather

  2. Aren't those just the sweetest baby images?!! Love them! What a wonderful gift for your daughter! Just for fun, I Googled and found that 2 of the Quints are still living, aged 78.

  8. These are precious! I actually have my father's baby book. He was born in 1942 and it is full of cute, color illustrations as well. I also copied them to use to scrapbook his baby pictures. Thanks for sharing these!
