Thread crashing...may I for just for one post? I just want to scream CONGRATULATIONS to you all. There are no words for how exciting a first pregnancy, birth and parenthood experience are. I'm getting goosebumps and a bit weepy thinking back.
And I have to throw in a tidbit on the book front. It's not a newborn book, but it has been SO helpful for me in the actual "raising a nice kid" (who does not run around and scream in restaurants...yet) arena. It has been my favorite and most helpful parenting book (and was given to me by a neighbor whose children I LOVE). It's called "Becoming the Parent You Want To Be." I read it while I was breastfeeding my newborn dd (and then ran out of time to read it again once my dd turned 1 and started acting like she was 2, so I was glad I'd read it early!)
Congrats again everyone
