I'm scouring my book shelf for a book about babies and it seems I never really needed one and the Internet sufficed. Toddlerhood was a whole different ballgame when discipline starts :)
Peter is a much better name than Ping which is what my youngest daughter wanted to name her brother from a book we'd recently read :)
You're right about toddlerhood being a new ballgame! I think 1-2 years is my least favorite age so far. I never read any books about babies with my daughter and we got along just fine. I'm thinking about checking out "The Happiest Baby on the Block" this time around, just to get some more soothing ideas.
Ping isn't so bad a name! ;-) I'll have to add it to our list. jk ha ha
