Reading Material

Currently reading "There Is No Me Without You" by Melissa Fay Greene. The book is very well written, and tells the story of a woman's attempt to save orphaned children in Ethiopia. I'm also reading a few infant care books. I had been reading so much about the history of ET that it struck me one day that I probably need to make sure I know all of the current child rearing methods.

I'm an only child, but I have a large family and have been taking care of babies forever. However, my family is a little old school, so I want to compare what I've learned from them with all of the "new fanlged" things that are out there. I'm not someoen who believes all that our elders did was wrong, so I plan on raising my little one with a combinaiton of wisdom from my elders and knowledge from my own generation.

As for fun stuff, I'm in the process of having Eden's room painted and her light fixture hung. Should have that accomplished by Saturday and will be sure to post a pic. I'm painting her walls Tiffany Blue. I hope it turns out well.

Hey there! I am so excited. You are moving right along! I love the meaning behind the name. And I admire the honesty on your blog. It can be difficult to be so honest to strangers but SOOOO therapeutic! I love blogging, it gives me a signature to add to my post and it allows others to read my story as well!

Happy blogging

Thanks Robbin,

I found out from Valarie's blog that Eden means "promise" in Amharic, but I haven't been able to confirm. It was in a link that she had on her blog.
