  1. I'm in Oregon and there are small signs of spring and sunshine. Ready for flipflop weather :)

  2. I'm a friend of Aimee Swift (that's how I found your blog) and am currently almost 37 weeks pregnant with my second son...I just finished reading Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, which was recommended to me by a good friend and mother of 3 (third born just this past November). If you're at all interested in having a natural birth (or even if you're not), I highly recommend this book! It can be a little new-agey in parts, but it has SO much great information on how to have a natural childbirth! It's great!

  3. Belly Laughs by Jenny McCarthy

    She's completely blunt about everything and SO SO funny!:)

  4. so ready for spring. so ready. mm, soft pretzel with cheese sounds delicious right now.

  5. Since my sister is studying to be a certified doula/birth support, she's been reading a lot of books and I get to hear about the ebst of them....heh;)

    Baby Catcher by Peggy Vincent will probably always be my most favorite birth book e.v.e.r.
    Lots of women/mommies like it too. Your library should have it if you're going that way.

    Another good, informative one is The Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth--details and information without being TOO dry and dully written.

    Ah, spring....I hope it comes here soon...

  6. I can't wait for Spring! I love the warm weather :)

  7. love that photo, lovely you had the weekend off, I know i could do with one! x
