I was so excited (and appreciative!) about the participation in this giveaway that I’m choosing THREE WINNERS! Congratulations Bitt (you won with your tweet entry), Michaela, and Violet! Your names were chosen as the winners of my 24th Awesome Giveaway.
The prize: A Complete Set of My Ebooks. Simply email me so I can get the prize emailed to you.
When asked, “What is the best new parent advice you have for my husband, Greg, and myself?”… here is what they had to say:
Bitt: “advice from a teacher: read to your child! it makes a huge difference later on who was read to and who wasn’t as a child.”
Michaela: “Hallo my advice is very simple LOVE, love your girl, hug her anytime, telling her how much you love her, how much she means to you,may be she doesn´t understand words, but she understand the way how you telling her. I have 1 year old girl, I love her, she is the essence of my life I have wainting for her a lot, praying for her to become….but sometimes(not often) its happened that she cries and I don´t know why, then I still keep in my mind how much I love her, she is my and my husband, she is absolutelly dependent of us, we have to guard her fight for her, LOVE her. So when you will be tired, when you will don´t know what´s happen to her in that time, she will need even more hugs, more cuddling more love……….so just LOVE her!!!”
Violet: “Chill out! With your first you’re SOO concerned about doing everything just right, and often about what everyone else and every book and expert thinks is right. After you’re broken in you find your kids just want to feel loved by parents who are happy to have them. If a goal or expectation you have is stressing you, dad or baby out, you need to step back and be sure you are choosing your battles. Everyone can see you are a thoughtful parent who cares a great deal and is well informed, so just be sure to let the love you have for your little one be your first priority. You guys will do great, even though the 1st few months (okay maybe 6 months to 2 years to some degree) feels endless and like you can’t do anything right :). Sorry so long!”
Thanks to everyone for such amazing participation!!!
