Review ~ Aden + Anais Baby Swaddling Blankets & Wraps

Benefits of Swaddling

Most parents say that swaddling helps their babies get to sleep, stay asleep, and get comforted quickly, especially when they are newborns. A properly-swaddled baby feels warm and secure, and the wrap can help prevent a baby from throwing his arms up and startling himself, or even scratching his face.

For centuries, all over the world, mothers have preferred to swaddle their babies in muslin fabric. Now the comfort, safety and breathable weave of larger muslin swaddling clothes is available here in the United States from Aden + Anais.

Aden + Anais was formed by two mothers. Here is their story ~

We're Aussie mothers who moved from Australia to the United States in 1996. In preparation for the arrival of our children, Aden and Anais, we went in search of muslin wraps like the ones we have back home, a staple with Australian mothers. None of the wraps we found on the market in the US were the right size, they were too small to securely swaddle our babies. None …

Journal according to John by Sheryl Keen

Journal According To John ~

Following a nasty bar brawl, John, a twenty-eight-year-old man, follows a close friend’s advice and begins keeping a journal. He’s recently divorced from his wife, Debbie, and he hopes the journal will provide a tool with which to make sense of his brief, failed marriage and to determine why he is so emotionally challenged.

As a therapist specializing in behavioral issues, he knows he has to pull his own life together. If he tells people to clean up their own lives, modify their thoughts, and learn new, more appropriate behaviors, he knows that he’s got to step up and follow his own advice. Early on, he realizes that his mother, the curator of a gallery that specializes in steel art and other nontraditional works, has largely shaped his thoughts and actions. But just how much can he blame her for his current state of affairs?

Soon the words in the journal are flowing easily and quickly. When painful thoughts are no longer avoided and dreams provide fuel for hi…

Review ~ Finger Linkin' Fifteen {Stephanie Plum}

Image
I can't believe I didn't review this book yet. I really enjoyed the 15th installment in the Stephanie Plum series (Finger Lickin' Fifteen (Stephanie Plum Novels)). I actually thought it was better then some of the others. I got several laughs in the book, which is what I'm looking for.

I love Stephanie's crazy antics, I enjoy the back & forth between Joe & Ranger. I think Janet Evanovich came through with this one.

I was surprised to see so many low reviews on amazon. Here I thought this was one of the better ones. Oh well, I enjoyed it ~ what can I say. I do wish that Stephanie & Joe would just get together already though. I hope if Evanovich ends the series, she will get them together.

The latest Evanovich crime caper involves barbecue, decapitation, fire bombs, and fiery temptation for bail bondsman Stephanie Plum. Lorelei King delivers this light fiction with gusto, missing none of the humor, whether broad or subtle. Her version of Stephani…
