We got our first Christmas card today. And we actually picked up our photo cards at the Costco this evening, too, which means that by Monday night I should have at least a few cards ready for the post office. While there was no photo included with the card we received, I did like the sentiment printed on the front. I've read it before, but appreciate it still:
mend a quarrel.
Seek out a forgotten friend.
Write a love letter.
Share some treasure. Give a soft answer.
Keep a promise. Find the time.
Forgive an enemy. Listen.
Apologize if you were wrong.
Think of someone else first.
Be kind and gentle.
Laugh a little. Laugh a little more.
Express your gratitude.
Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
Speak your love. Speak it again.
Speak it still once again.

I have nearly finished reading Brain Rules for Babies - and it's not like I've got THAT much time on my hands - but I'm looking for some good book suggestions. Anybody got any good suggestions for books on parenting? Or being a working mom? Or any other title that's worth picking up during Advent? I figure rather than wade through the stacks of possibilities on my own and risk wasting a lot of time on duds, I'd ask for help. So, help! Thanks.

Here she is, in all her newborn glory.
When folks ask me how I am, my new answer is "I'm 'New-Mom Tired.'" And loving it, of course. There have been so many would-have-been posts over the last few months. Oh well. Some almost get written. Most don't. And life goes on.
