My Little Sweat Pea

According to The Bump, my little one is about the size of a sweat pea this week...about 1/4 of an inch. And baby's heart should have started beating around about this week...depending on how accurate our calculations are :D

Week 6: Sweet Pea
Average size: .25 in

Anyway, interesting little tidbits...last week baby was only about the size of an apple seed....

Book Review: Baby Bear Discovers the World

This is a wonderful little book about a baby bear who goes off to discover the world...without his mother. All the while, other animals ask baby bear why he is exploring without his mama. He assures everyone that he is big enough to be exploring on his own...until he finds trouble. This book has great wildlife pictures and can be used as a springboard to discuss pride and wildlife with your little ones. (Although the author doesn't directly mention pride, it is portrayed in a negative light.)

We found this book at our local library, but I think it would make a great addition to any families' personal library.

Happy reading!
