I counted all the comments (except for mine) and we have 42 comments! So using a random generator we got a winner! Number: 26

Congratulations to Judy!! :o)
(Please email me so I can send you your signed copy of ABC, Baby Me!)

Now I didn't want you all to leave empty handed so the above illustration, Baby Hugs, is a little gift for you to copy and use on your cell if you'd like. I specially made it for the iphone dimensions so you can use it as a wallpaper.

Thank you ALL so much for being a part of the celebration and for all your comments. This wouldn't have been the same without you!

And remember if you get a copy of ABC, Baby Me! let me know and I can email you this dedication card with a handwritten note from me, so all you have to do is print and insert it in the book. :o)

I leave you with some beautiful words from Susan B. Katz where she explains how she was inspired to write ABC, Baby Me!:

"On June 19, 2008, I was on a plane on the way back from Michigan. I had just found out that my twin nephews, David and Jacob were born that day, but I hadn't met them yet.

The whole event was so exhilarating, that I found myself bursting with energy on the plane. I started thinking, "What do people need to do to take care of babies? SO MUCH!" The idea of the alphabet format flowed naturally from that and, by the time I landed in San Francisco, I had written the book."

Got to love moments like that!

Thanks again for visiting this week, hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.
And a special thanks to my lovely PBJ's for doing this for me.. you gals rock!!!!!!!

Oh, Ali, the whole thing was so much fun! I love to hear when creativity just flows out of a person. Seems like the illustrations flowed out of you in the same way the words flowed out of her.

Very cute iphone wallpaper! Thanks!
