Baby Goodness

Dear Friends,

Isn't the excitement and anticipation of a new baby wonderful? With the announcement of Amy and Winslow Tudor's baby arriving this fall, we have lots to celebrate. A few days ago, Christina and I were able to feel baby Tudor kick! It was such an uplifting moment and we were all smiling the rest of the day as we took your orders and answered your emails. What a wonderful existence we have.
This weekend I held a baby shower for a friend who happens to be named Marjorie. Everyone was asked to bring a favorite book for baby, and I chose "Around the Year." This book just seems to capture all Tasha's lifestyle so well, in an easy to read (and memorize) form that both kids and parents love. I also had her choose a print for the baby's room. She and her husband Jimmy chose "Bathtime" which I think was an excellent pick!

That has been my standard gift for the past few baby showers I've attended--a Tasha Tudor book and a print for the baby's room. What do you like to give for baby gifts? Do you have a favorite Tasha Tudor book you give? There are so many to choose from, it is fun to pick one that fits the family's personality.

Take joy, always, and greetings from Vermont on a rainy Tuesday.
