A bonus pocket in the back includes: an envelope for a birth announcement, a tiny envelope for a lock of hair, a booklet for jotting down baby’s first words and phrases, an accordion-folded growth chart, an envelope for handprints and footprints, and stickers to decorate photos. A pair of ribbons tie the padded case shut, making for a gifty package.
