I've been lurking here a bit and doing A LOT of research about hsing. DH and I have all but decided that hsing is the right choice for our family and our dd.

DD is 2 1/2 and even though we've done lots of research, we're still feeling a bit overwhelmed. Actually, I am. DH is very confident that I will pull this together without fail. I'm just the type of person that needs to get all the answers to my questions in black and white. Any gray areas make me a little twitchy, for lack of a better term. lol
Any words of wisdom for these early days?

I've read The Well Trained Mind, The Harried Homeschooler, Homeschooling on a Shoe String, and am currently thumbing through a stack of hsing books from the library.
Any recommendations?

I think you'd get a kick out of How To Raise An Amazing Child The Montessori Way or Teach Me To Do It Myself - especially since it's applicable now.

May I also suggest the book Kids Are Worth It? It's not about schooling, but the approaches and philosophy in the book help keep the learning happening and not making it all about discipline when there's a snag in the day. And I'd suggest A.S. Neill's Summerhill School/anything by John Holt.
