Baby’s First Car Ride

Baby's First Car RideAfter we finally finishing packing for baby’s first road trip, we got to experience baby’s first car ride.

Since we don’t own a car, this weekend’s trip was Arya’s first time riding in an automobile. After some difficulty loading the van and installing the car seat, we were able to leave only one hour behind our original schedule.

Spot Loves His Friends by Eric Hill – Book Review

Spot Loves His Friends by Eric HillArya liked the previous Spot book so I knew she would like Spot Loves His Friends by Eric Hill as well.

At 14 pages, this Spot book is among the shortest of any books we have read to our baby. It took less than three minutes for Mommy to read Spot Loves His Friends to Arya.
