New Books!

I have read so, so many pregnancy books throughout my life that I find those a little boring right now.  I want to read about once our little boy is actually here.  A few items that are of particular interest to me are foods for baby and baby sign language.  I found a baby sign language book at Value Village a few weeks ago, and have been slowly perusing through it as I feel like it.
Sign With Your Baby: How to Communicate With Infants Before They Can Speak (Revised, ASL - English Edition)

I got some new books in the mail this week from amazon about food and babies that I'm excited to get started reading.  One is actually a cookbook packed full of information about food and our bodies.  It includes a large section on breastfeeding mothers and babies, so it's just one big exciting book that I'm sure will become a favorite.

The other two books are more baby centered, and highly recommended by other bloggy moms, as well as by the reviews I have read online.

Baby-Led Weaning: The Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods - and Helping Your Baby to Grow Up a Happy and Confident Eater        Real Food for Mother and Baby: The Fertility Diet, Eating for Two, and Baby's First Foods

I've been too buys this week doing other things to begin reading them, but as the weather gets chillier, I'm sure they will be calling my name.  Right now I'm more interested in getting our little one's room ready (as if it's a high priority, he's still got 21 more weeks of growing to do before he'll need anything in his room).  It is so much fun right now to get his little clothes and diapers washed and organized and ready for him, and plan some fun crochet and sewing projects to get started and finished up in time for his arrival!  Steve and I both feel this great sense of impatience, now that we know it's a he, we want to meet him!  But I know he's in there for a good reason, we don't want a little 8oz baby now do we?
