  About The Book

You will always be the first...

A touching tribute to baby's early milestones -- those unforgettable moments that will always be cherished. From first smiles to first cuddles and even to that first kiss, here's a loving ode to every child's -- and parent's -- momentous "firsts."


Praise for Who Loves Me?

"MacLachlan's cozy, comforting dialogue meanders like a song. A warm and lyrical selection."


Praise for Painting the Wind

"The prose flows with the relaxed rhythms of summer. Evocative descriptions bring life and individuality to each artist."
