My nephew, Jackson, is a Genius. Here he is, reading from one of his favorite books, "What to Expect the First Year" by Heidi Murkoff. "How do you like the book?," I asked him. "Hi!," he answered, brightly, which I take to mean "It's a fascinating book and I highly recommend it." And what's not to recommend? It's loaded with useful tips and information on what to expect during baby's first year. Jackson appeared to be leafing through a chapter on "Baby's First Birthday." Murkoff advises readers to keep the celebration simple so as not to overwhelm the baby. She specifically says, "Don't order a clown; Don't have a band; Don't have too much hoopla!" Did we follow her advice? Stay tuned for further details ...!
