Sleepy Thoughts

At 3 am this morning, I had the best idea for the baby Olivia book. A timeline made in the traditional linear style... The first dot in the line starts out:

Everyone has a story that starts somewhere. This is Olivia's story, it starts here. (This would be typeset and hand drawn/stamped - the starting dot is in between the word "story," and "it".)

Mama finds out she is pregnant! (type circles around dot)

Line starts from this dot and continues to edges of paper, where you turn the page and the line continues. 

The next few pages will be Oli's ultrasounds with little notes. (Layout? Ultrasounds backed by paper? Special cut edges? Plaques underneath? I want to keep these first pages relatively b/w only - color will pop with her birth pages.)
