This is the version appropriate for male readers. It does not include several sections of graphic detail that the original version discusses. However it maintains the integrity of the original work. In this book of memoirs Bridget A.B. Halfaker documents her real-life experience of conception, pregnancy, and birth. She delves into her ideals for the soon-to-be child; including what birthing techniques to use, where to live, and how to discipline. She details her physical and emotional symptoms- of which there are many! Along her journey she confronts several demons from her past, attempting to better herself in order to create a happy and healthy environment for her baby. From family and childhood, to the unwanted baby advice strangers on the street give, Bridget explores all aspects of growing a human being.
Frances has a new baby sister . . . and she's not happy about it.
With the new addition to the family, no one pays much attention to Frances anymore. At least that's the way it seems to her. So Frances decides to run away. Not too far, though-just far enough so she can hear how much she'll be missed, even by baby Gloria!
The name we are given by our parents has a big impact on us. Throughout our life, from the playground to the office, other people will make instinctive and subconscious assumptions about who we are just from our name. We'll hear it spoken in anger and joy, it'll be shortened, lengthened and parodied, it will be loved and loathed. Finding a name that you like, that suits your child and that your child will be happy to carry with them for the rest of their life is not easy. The possibilities seem endless. So where do you start? Brilliant Baby Names has all the answers and will help you to take the worry out of getting your baby's name just right.
More than just an alphabetical list of popular names, Brilliant Baby Names is the ultimate guide to naming your baby. Whether you're seeking advice about how to choose a name, looking for inspiration in finding the perfect name or searching for help in handling disagreements or family expectations, this book can help. As you'd expect, the book is packed with 1000s of names to review. Each is listed with details on what they mean and their origin.
The lists are split into boys', girls' and neutral names to make the selection process as simple as possible. You'll re-discover traditional names that have been popular in the past; cool names where virtually anything goes; popular names that everyone's using; unusual names that perhaps you'd rather avoid; celebrity names that are on everyone's lips and famous names that the whole world will know. If you need more help or are looking for a namesake, you'll find extra inspiration in the lists of the 100 greatest names from cinema, literature, entertainment, sport and many more. As well as the name lists though, you'll find everything you need to keep in mind, and avoid, when considering a name for your child.
There's also detailed information on why choosing the right name is so important and how it may affect your child's opportunities in life. There's essential help and advice in handling and resolving any disagreements with your partner and managing family expectations. You'll find out what the law requires: when and how to register your child's name, how your legal name is used and what to do if you wish to change your child's name later.
So, when it comes to naming your baby, Brilliant Baby Names is the only book you'll ever need.
