I haven't done much baby reading this pregnancy until this past week. I got out my favorite, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer. It's written by an English nanny, so that alone makes it entertaining. It's got a lot of good ideas on routines, sleeping, etc, yet has a pretty laid back and flexible approach. One of the most interesting parts of the book for me is that she goes over different personalities babies have and then advice on how to work with them. I didn't follow it exactly, but got lots of good ideas and I always like to have something to refer to when I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm hoping to try some of her techniques in the sleeping area more than I did with Henry since that was his worst skill, but maybe she'll just be a better sleeper in general and I won't have to worry about it?? Stop laughing, please. :)
So I'm a little embarassed to admit this, but Henry painted for the first time this week and loved it. If you sign up with Michaels.com, they email you 40% off coupons that you can print off and use throughout the week (then you don't have to worry about getting the Sunday paper) so I'm going to gradually stock up on fun crafts. I also learned that he loves stickers. So fun! And just in time to keep him busy with something while I'm taking care of baby.
Hope you all enjoy this lovely day!
