    Worth every penny!

    I know I rated this book exceptionally high...but I meant it! We loved this book and it's depth of information. It was so easy to track our daughter's progress and see that yes, what she's doing at this moment IS normal! The book adds humor and cartoons to help parents keep their sense of humor throughout. I always give this book as baby presents and will definitely hold onto my copy!
