  5. "The Sweet Melissa
    Baking Book" by Melissa Murphy is one book that would be used almost daily here at my house!

    Baby Massage and Baby signing would be wonderful because I am having #5 and have always been interested in both!

    Chix Can Fix is yet another book we totally could use, I am Mrs. Handy around here!
