Charley thoroughly enjoys reading the Baby Einstein book Mirror Me. I love it too because I can see her face and expressions in the mirrors. She doesn’t react to her reflection in the mirror yet, but every time we read the ‘Say, “Cheese!”‘ page she smiles. It’s adorable.
This week I’ve been reading a fantastic book my mom gave me this past weekend: How to Have Your Second Child First. It’s basically about how overly serious, stressed and analytical we can be with our first, but with our second child we are much more laid back simply because we’ve been there before and know all works out in the end. And, honestly … parents really don’t have another option when there’s more than one human being 100% dependent on you. I’m going to start giving it as a gift at all future baby showers I attend. It is a must-read for first-time parents! Very fun and funny and with each page it makes me feel just a tad more normal. ; )
Apart from this book I’m looking for a good book to read when I crawl into bed at night. Something I can escape to like a Twilight … or Honeymoon with My Brother … or Marley and Me or Redeeming Love. Something really good and easy to get lost in. Something that will help me unwind from my baby-crazed days. Any ideas? I can’t seem to find anything that looks appealing.
