Just a quick update to let you all know that Baby Bookworm is doing well. She's one month old today. She's still in the hospital, but the doctors think that she'll be ready to come home very soon. We just need her to eat a bit more reliably on her own, and gain a little more weight. She's up to a pound above her birth weight now, so she's well on her way.
Many thanks to everyone who took time to send good wishes (here, on Facebook, on Twitter, etc.), and to the many friends who have sent our daughter books. She's going to have a wonderful library, made that much more special by having been a community effort.
I actually started reading her first chapter book to her this week: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. She seems to find it calming. I know that I do. I'll provide more updates on our reading experiences, as time permits.
Thanks again for the good wishes! And it seems an appropriate time for me to wish all of the mothers out there an early Happy Mothers Day.
