A lovely and loving record of a baby's first year.

This is baby Suki.
She is one day old.
The nurse wraps her tightly in a blanket.
We call her our little burrito.

As little Suki grows bigger with each passing month, she reaches the milestones that every child does in the magical first year of life. At three months she claps her hands and squeals with delight. At nine months she visits the beach and plays with her mother at the water's edge. Soon it's time for Suki to celebrate her first birthday.

Peter McCarty chronicles the early months of his daughter's life in exquisite pencil drawings and tender, evocative prose that will resonate with anyone who has ever watched a child grow. Baby Steps, a wonderful gift book for new parents, is also just right for sharing with toddlers who love to look at pictures of babies and point out all the things they can do.
