Welcome to our Big Baby Book!
We were talking to a guy in the bank, and he said he and his wife were expecting their first child. My husband said, “Your life will never be the same.” He is right.
If you are expecting your first child or your third, you probably already know (or are about to know) your life will never be the same – in a good way. From nights of lost sleep from teething, croup, worry and just a happy baby, wide awake and wanting to play, when you have a child, your life absolutely changes forever.
My babies are now 21 and 25. I cannot believe they are all grown up. But it doesn’t change how you feel – they are always your babies, and you are always concerned about them.
This time in our Big Baby Book we take a look at the name trends for 2014 on page 14. What name have you chosen for your baby? Is it traditional or trendy? Why did you choose? Did you think about how the baby will deal with that name throughout his or her life?
We also look at twins. Writer Paige Townley interviews several area parents who are parenting twins, including ABC 33/40 Meteorologist Charles Daniel, pictured on our cover, first-time dad to twins Ingram and Harrison. Double the work, Daniel says he and his wife don’t know any better because it’s their first babies. But there are some real challenges to parenting twins. Check out the story on page 22.
Last but not least, I enjoyed my conversation with Supernanny Jo Frost, who discussed ways to make a sibling more comfortable welcoming a new baby into your home. She’s my hero when it comes to parenting, and she has some great advice for parents beginning on page 16. And she’s got a new book out that’s definitely worth the read.
Happy Spring, and Happy Easter!
