Super Baby Food

I wasn't as ambitious as I wouldve liked but this book is awesome for baby food recipes to do at home that are really healthy. Especially when they get into solids etc.

From Jennifer: DHA Cereals

After our discussion on baby food I started to do a little research. I had noticed at the store rice and oatmeal cereals for babies with DHA added and wondered if it was really better. Here's a Consumer Reports article on baby food that talks about this issue, organic baby food, etc.:

Baby Photographer List

Looking for a photographer? Here is a list of recommended photographers compiled by the MS moms and their respective comments...

Mary Ann
She’s taken my pregnancy portrait and our 2006 Holiday picture we send to our family. Beyond her natural talent for taking great shots, you also get a CD with high resolution images taken at the session included in her fee!

She shoots celebrity weddings and does quite a bit of lifestyle work, including documenting children.

Desiree Swanson
We had good experience with Desiree Swanson. You get a CD with all the images so you can get them developed anywhere and any way you'd like.

Jill Labberton
Jill Labberton is amazing. She's pricey, but well worth it. She's located in Redmond.

Elisha Rain
I highly recommend Elisha Rain. She’s a former doula with such talent for working with new families! She just took our daughter’s six month pictures and they are wonderful. She took newborn, and pregnancy photos for us as well.

Michelle Huenink Photography
She’s great – AND you get the CD with all the rights to print on your own.

Amanda Shea
she is simply wonderful to work with and her photographs are first rate. We have been 100% pleased with everything’s she’s done for us. She’s not the cheapest, but we think the quality of her work is worth it.


MeRa Koh Photography
MeRa Koh photography is great! A little more expensive but worth every penny in my opinion.

Kristine Anderson Photography

Bella Photography
I really like You can see other peoples’ proofs on her web page to see if you like her style.

Carmen Chan Photography

I have personally used Carmen Chan, and she is great. Her price can be a bit more, but she loves kids and will come to your house. Very easy to work with. The only other thing is that you have to purchase the CD seperately if you want all your images. -Maria
