I’m sure parents will be familiar with Heidi Murkoff. I don’t know about others, but her books are my bible during the time i was pregnant (with Jerry) and after. I’m currently reading What to Expect: The Toddler Years. They have been so helpful to me, from the days when i was pregnant and when Jerry went through his first year. Often, i find myself checking off the milestones in the book and it has been most helpful. i am really, really excited for a chance to meet her in real life.
