all things george

A baby is on the way, a baby is on the way!  I'm due to have a little boy in June and we're naming him George.  Things may turn a little childish here...!

I am searching the thrifts for this 1970s children's lit series...it was a favorite of mine as a little girl.  I'm hoping to find some to -gasp- tear apart and maybe frame for his nursery (which, by the way, I haven't even started!).  These are the sweetest hippos; their silly stories could make you smile even on your worst day!

look for the television series, with Andrea Martin as Martha and Nathan Lane as George. My son loved it when he was little. We used to check them out from the library.

We loved the books, too!
