This has been a fun 3 years with you all and reading your posts each week. I have even noticed how regular most of you have become. It's because of your dedication that this special post will have a giveaway. You don't have to participate in The Friday 56 to enter the giveaway, but it would be nice...

"Babies with sore tummies sleep better on tummies. You watch him. He not die."

  1. Hah, he's right. Current research says to lay babies on their backs for sleeping but encourages tummy time for playing. :)

  8. Happy 3 years and thank you for the giveaway!

    Sometimes that happens to me - I get stuck on a book because of lack of reading time, nothing against the book though.

    Have a great weekend!

  17. OMG, has it been three years already? I remember when you took this one over. I didn't participate this week (it has been awhile) but I need to get back to posting with you again, I do miss it.

  19. Happy 3 years! Every Friday I try to remind myself to participate but I seem to forget. However, since tomorrow is Friday, I am going to set up a post right now! I have no idea what book I'd pick yet, though it would either be a cozy mystery or a historical romance. :)
