I found this treasure a few weeks ago in the Bargain Bin at Barnes and Noble. It is simply adorable! The illustration on the cover is a delightful preview to the many wonderful pictures and ideas inside. The website for the book gives more information. Here is just an excerpt:
Mom’s Almanac is organized into seven themed chapters: The Bare Essentials, Feeding Time, Having Fun, Stepping Out, Seasons and Holidays, Preserving Memories and The Best of Everything.
I was given the authors' Christmas Almanac several years ago as a gift. It, too, is filled with beautiful images and ideas. Apparently the authors have quite a few books, all of which seem to be well-reviewed.
I had my weekly midwife appointment this morning. All is well with both the baby and I. Pumpkin was right there, helping the whole time. He really likes the midwife and stands along side her as she measures and pokes my tummy. He is so intent watching everything she does and of course, keeping a close eye on me. He pats my tummy and blows kisses.
After the visit he and I went to explore the new hospital near by. It's where we will transport to if there is an emergency during or after labor. It's nice enough, but I sure hope I don't have to go there! It's a nice hospital, but still is obviously a hospital and looks like an uncomfortable place to have a baby to me. I'd much rather stay home and enjoy the comforts of my own home and bedroom.
Please continue to pray for us! We are much obliged to everyone.
