Before I was born
I expect things to change a lot for Zach when his new brother is born. I have been very worried about how he is going to react and I hope he doesn't feel less loved. As a result, I decided to write a book for the new baby to give to Zach when he visits the hospital. I needed to write a book this summer anyway and couldn't decide on what kind of a book to write. I contemplated a cookbook with some friends, but instead decided to write this children's book for Zach. I am very happy with how it came out, and I cannot wait to see it when it comes in the mail! I will cherish this book for years, and hope it will help Zach understand that Mommy and Daddy love him very much.
I realize it is very difficult to read the text on this. Unfortunately there is no way to fix that! So here is a translation of my book.
"To My Big Brother
Looking forward to many adventures together,
Your baby brother
