A Special Giveaway: The Next 1000 Days

My 3rd child, my baby, who's turning into a big girl. She's running now and everyday, she has new words. You'd think that after 3 kids, I'd be used to the way a baby transforms from a little person who solely depends on you, to a brave little soul who wants to explore the world, but I'm not taking it for granted- not one bit.

Everyday, I'm just as amazed with the way she's changing, as I was a first time Mom. Sure, I might be a bit more relaxed, but I'm just as thrilled, watching her grow as I was with the other two. Being her Mama and discovering who she is, is such a joy. I don't want to ever forget her firsts, our inside jokes and the things that make her laugh.

When she turns 2, I'll start recording all of her special moments, her drawings, her favorites and our adventures in this beautiful book, The Next 1000 Days. This beautiful companion to the best-selling The First 1000 Days journal (over 50,000 copies sold) helps parents capture the precious ages between two and six. From losing a first tooth to the first day of school, Nikki McClure's beautiful paper cut illustrations celebrate all the special moments. Parents can also write and draw with their child to help bring these years to life and preserve them for all time.

Nikki McClure is known for her intricate and beautiful paper cuts. Using an X-Acto knife, she cuts her images from a single sheet of paper, creating a bold graphic language that translates the complex poetry of motherhood, nature, and activism into endearing graphics. One of my favorite things about Nikki is that she lives in Olympia, WA. I have a big soft spot in my heart for local artists and authors.
