Monica Eggen spells out her version for us, in her day-by-day personal account of the birth and young life of a "first baby": from conception, through pregnancy fears and concerns, the actual delivery, full-time breastfeeding, maternity leave, paternity leave, and finally no leaves, in a two-career family learning about the first twelve months of babyhood.
Now she may not be the first to document this juggling act, but she may be the first to do so unbeknownst to her husband. By the time Baby Jake has reached 12 months and 2 weeks, the manuscript for this book is on the way to the publisher!
Surprise! Happy 36th Birthday, Scott!
"A Baby Story combines the physical realities of conception and pregnancy with the joy of childbirth and infancy. Monica Eggen's warm, funny narrative makes the experience come alive."
