The Third Year of Baby Names

“Baby Name of the Week” was an idea launched by Thee Baby Lady on 3/28/10 for a year’s worth of baby names. The names from the first year can be found here. And the second year is found here. Below is the collection of the baby names selected from the third year (mostly in 2012) and then posted on Facebook. We work our way through the alphabet, with a new name picked each week for a year. One girl name, then one boy name for 52 weeks. 26 girl names, 26 boy names. Each March, we start the alphabet over again. The name is posted on Wednesdays, with a chance for fans to “guess” the preselected name on Tuesdays.

33 Years!

Thirty-three years ago today on 10/12, a baby was born. Not just any baby. THEE baby. It’s the baby who set the course for where I am today. That baby’s birth, the mother’s pregnancy, and the following years up until now surrounded me with a wealth of experience. It allowed me to be involved in some of the most sacred moments of a new family’s life and a baby’s life. All the “firsts” and the delight and discoveries shining through each baby’s eyes. And the smile on the mother’s lips or the concern on her face with questions. Questions. And more questions. I love what I do. I’m amazed it’s been 33 years.

Happy Birthday to the first Thee Baby Lady Graduate, 33 years old today!

Almost 1 Year (or 12 Months!)

Today is the day that Z Is for Zucchini: a Baby Foods Memory Book turns 11 months old! That means next month on July 20th, my children’s book will be 1 year old and to be correct, one can also say 12 months old! I think it’s funny when people say, “My baby is turning 1 year old” and then go back to saying “My baby is 13 months” the following month until the age of two. Isn’t it fascinating what innocent babies can do to moms!

I can hardly believe time has flown so quickly and I am so grateful to those of you that have chosen to support the book, and its central theme, “Creating Healthy Eaters for a Lifetime™”. And I want you to know that with each purchase, you also receive a “mini consultation” of how to achieve this INCREDIBLE goal.

So, for this time of celebration from June 20th through July 20th (the actual birthday), you can pre-order a book as it goes into its third printing!  And for this time, a special birthday price will be offered of $15 ($10 off the regular price).

The most common birthdays occur during the months of July, August, and September. Z Is for Zucchini is a unique gift for baby showers, new baby gifts, first birthdays, second birthdays, and even grandparent gifts. I hope you’ll take advantage of this offer by clicking through to the following link to order:        BIRTHDAY BOOK OFFER
