You can cut blocks out of the other paper which you can use to write letters for your baby.
Once you have created the first page of the scrapbook, add in the first ultrasound print to the scrapbook. You can also put the pictures of the mom-to-be and dad-to-be on the day of the ultrasound. You can also attach small notes about your thoughts and feelings on that day.
If you are planning to set up a new nursery for the new born, then the memories can also add up a page or two for the scrapbook. You can take pictures of yourself while shopping for the nursery. You can also paste printouts of lovely nursery designs from the internet. Make a wish list for your baby and paste it in the scrapbook.
