Pregnancy Book Giveaway

A week passed and no one has entered. So, once I get 10 entries, I will draw for a winner. Anyone want a free book?

I have always enjoyed participating in and even winning a couple of giveaways from my fellow bloggers, and have had in the back of my mind that I'd like to offer more giveaways to my readers. I have an item that I think some of you might be interested in, here, that a friend recently passed on to me. I already had one so I thought I would share it. It is one of my favorite books and pregnancy and birth: The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth by Sheila Kitzinger.
 The Complete Book of Pregnancy and Childbirth (Revised)


This book covers the week-by-week changes of the pregnant body, and includes beautiful photos of home and hospital births. As the name suggests, it is a pretty complete guide to most of the questions that expectant parents encounter, and it couches its answers in non-scary, but accurate, terms.


The giveaway will run for a week, so I will randomly pick a number for a winner next Sunday night. To enter, comment with your favorite source of information about pregnancy or birth.


For extra entries:
1. Publicly follow my blog and comment for one additional entry.
2. Follow @rosepeck on Twitter and comment for one additional entry. You may also tweet once a day for an additional entry. Leave separate comments with the permalink each time.
3. Comment on a previous post of mine and come back here and comment which one. Limit 5 extra entries.
4. Blog about the giveaway and comment with the URL for two (2) extra entries, leaving two separate comments.

Summer 2020 - Life in a Pandemic

I'm in my final week of summer before work as a middle school teacher begins again. This time of year I'm always in a reflective mood.  I look back and feel so lucky to have had this time with my kids. We went camping, biking, boating, golfing, and hiking. We celebrated my sister's wedding, we did projects together, watched movies, and just hung out at home. It really was everything that summer is meant to be. There were many events and plans that we canceled due to Covid, but we did all the most important things. We missed friends, but I also reveled in the togetherness with my little family unit. Today, I spent time registering for fall childcare and activities. It's less than usual, but still I can see the pace of our lives picking up. As we move into a season of more busy-ness, more work, and likely more stress, this poem sums up the feelings I'm experiencing....

Woollybottoms Giveaway

I am hosting my first giveaway! I have been wanting to do this for a while, and I'm so pleased to have it finally planned. The item I chose to give is a new pair of Woollybottoms - wool pants for babies. The retail value of these is $29.00. I have been really into the wool pants thing lately, as you may have noticed from my recent posts (about Nifty Knickers , and my baby blue longies ) so this seems like a good fit. Wool pants can be used as a cloth diaper cover, or just as snuggly warm pants for the winter or for bedtime. These ones are "footies" so they should keep your baby toasty! The pair I am giving to one lucky winner is light blue with fish fabric for the footie part. Maybe a little more boyish than girlie, but Stella would definitely wear these if we got to keep them. They are size medium, and have the following measurements: 8" waist (elastic) 9" rise 18" length Here they are: To enter, simply comment below and let me know why you wan

Baby Blue Recycled Wool Longies

The first time I made recycled wool diaper covers, I made "shorties" that fit like little shorts, or a more typical diaper cover. For that project, I bought several wool sweaters at Goodwill and followed a pattern I found online that basically consists of cutting a triangle out of the sweater, cutting off the sleeve cuffs and neck, and sewing it all together, using the sleeves for the leg holes and the neck for the waist. I can give more specific instructions if you'd like, just ask in comments, but unfortunately was unable to find the site that I originally got the pattern from. To size the sides of the triangle, measure your little one's waist and add a half inch. Katrina's Sew Quick blog has some great patterns for a variety of types of wool diaper covers. Here is one of the first ones I made, clearly it is a little bit big at this point. You can see another photo of my handiwork in the bottom photo of my " Diapering My Active Nine-Month-Old " po
