  • Chief Family Officer’s Third Anniversary Celebration: Giveaway #3 – Gymboree Baby Play Book

    I love books! So I’ll be giving away several books during the anniversary celebration. The first book is a copy of Gymboree Baby Play.

    Gymboree Baby Play contains over 100 activities for babies 0-12 months, organized by age appropriateness. To some of you, this probably sounds silly, but for those of us who didn’t grow up around young children and haven’t really spent any time with babies, a book full of ideas can be a very handy resource!

    To enter, simply leave a comment telling me the thing you love most about babies.

    For an extra chance to win, subscribe to my feed via RSS or email and leave a separate comment telling me you have done so (or that you’re already subscribed).

    The giveaway ends at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 10. I’ll use Random.org to generate a number that corresponds with the winning comment.

    The winner will be announced here on CFO. If I can easily locate the winner’s email address, I will also email the winner. The winner will have 48 hours to claim their copy of Gymboree Baby Play; otherwise a new winner will be randomly selected.

    One entry per type per person. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.

    Good luck!

      As a mom of 6 month old twins, I’ve found so much to love about them. The best is how the simplest things can bring them the greatest joy. I love the smile on their face and the sparkle in their eyes when they have done something new, and are so proud of themselves.

    2. Mary512 says:

      I love the way they smell, how cute they are, and how small, and the adorable noises they make! Great giveaway, thanks!

    17. I’ve got a brand new baby (my first, and I haven’t played with many other babies yet) so this book would be great!

      I love all the neat little sounds she makes while she’s sleeping, eating, or just hanging in the crib (like right now)

    18. I love baby sounds (well not so much the crying) but the first coos and gurgles–ahhhh!

    19. I love how proud they are of themselves when they start doing something like walking or crawling.

    20. There are so many things to love about babies. One thing that makes my heart smile is looking down at my son while he is nursing and see him grin around my boob. ๐Ÿ™‚ I always wonder what he is thinking!! I also love his big toothy grin.
