S: The Sarracino Baby book of Advice and Tips

BC: "Six girls trying trying to jump in a pool at the same time is a stupid idea and annual girls trips are a must!!!" Love you always, the girls;)

1: Dear Meredith and Billy, We are so excited for you and the new baby girl that you're bringing into this world. We thought a scrapbook would be a great idea to include all the advice and tips from your friends and family. Hopefully you can read it in the hospital or turn back to it from time to time. Love, the Kidd, the Baby, the Professor, Chiavari, and Sugar

3: Meredith, Words cannot possibly express how happy I am to be starting a family with you. Our baby will be so lucky to have you as a mother as I have been to have you as my wife. I am so excited to experience this next chapter of our life together, a life that will be filled with even more love than we ever thought possible. You will be an absolutely amazing mother, and I only hope to be able to learn from you how to be half as good of Father. The best part of my day is and will always be coming home to you, and I cannot wait for the day when I get to come home to both of you. I can provide our family with love, support and security, but you are by far providing us with the most important thing of all, a baby. Meredith, you are my best friend, and I could not have been luckier to have met you. Thank you for bringing me into your life and loving me like I know you will love our baby. All my love, Billy

5: Motherly Advice: 1) Get all the rest you can while the baby is asleep. 2) Teamwork between you and Billy will make baby chores seem lighter. 3) Talk to the baby even though you think (he or she) doesn't understand. 4) Trust your instincts because you know your baby best. 5) Give the baby a lot of visual and verbal stimulation to make (him or her) happy. Special Tricks: 1) Keep a zip-lock bag with a fabric softener sheet inside in your diaper bag for when it is not convenient to dispose of a used diaper right away. 2) Keep an extra fully loaded diaper bag in your car trunk for emergencies. Baby Must Haves: 1) Baby Monitor System 2) Diaper Genie 3) Floppy Seat - a must have for grocery shopping 4) Stroller and Travel system 5) Disposable changing pads Mom

6: Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

7: Dear Meredith and Billy, Baby Sarracino will already have a head start because she will have you for parents. Love her. She will grow up to be kind, caring, and self-assured. Talk to her all the time. She will grow up to be intelligent. Discipline her. It will teach her right from wrong. Congratulations! You are in for the time of your lives. With Love, Mom C

8: Dear Meredith, Well I'm so happy to write you this letter as we await the birth of your baby girl. God works in mysterious ways and it has been such a Blessing to me to be pregnant at the same time as you. This way you can actually give me advice:) Meredith, I've always looked up to you and I have no doubt that you and Billy will be amazing parents. As far as advice, I really don't have much yet. What I have learned from my parents is the best gift you can give your baby is a strong foundation in the Lord. It is the key to wisdom. And as hard as it may be sometimes...remember God comes first, Billy comes second, and baby comes third. Love you, Kellie xoxo

10: A new baby is the beginning of all things....

11: "Be Happy"

12: Well...since I am only a mother to Shade DeStefano...I will offer advice based on my relationship with Pikachu. I will say be your daughters friend as well as her guidance. One of the things I love the most about my mom is that she always makes me feel like I can tell her anything and share everything with her. But at the same time I respect her and would never abuse the trust she has in me to make good decisions. Meredith, you are the closest thing I have to a sister and I know you will be an amazing mother because you have always taken such good care of me and our friendship. I couldn't be happier for you and I can't wait to meet your mini me!!! Love you. | Love, Carisse

13: "In every situation, you must have a glass of champagne" (after she's turns 21 of course)

14: Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

15: Baby Zora, Being that I am the Professor I feel that much of my adviced should be listened too:) Being a new Mommy myself I would like to share some advice and must haves based off of my experiences alone: Must Haves 1.Tissue For those moments you just want to hide in your bathroom and cry your eyes out, and don't ask what for because I have no idea, and you probably won't either 2. Nipple Pads and a Nursing Night Tank Bra Nothing like waking up in the middle of the night and wondering how you peed on your pillow, then realize it's your milk 3. Hemorrhoid Cream, Tucks, Stool Softeners, Fiber Powder They speak for themselves 4. Burp Clothes & Bibs Lots of these are a must! Once they begin spitting up it's like you are at Disneyland with someone who just ate a hot dog, cotton candy and a coke, then went on the Tea Cups! I bought a lot of these at consignment stores. 5. Sleepers with Zippers Billy will appreciate these over snap sleepers. When you wake up 4 times in the night to change their diaper it is so much easier to zip than snap while you are half asleep. Many mornings it looked like Brayden was in a stray jacket after Dave snapped him in during the night. 6. WINE Yes wine, this is for you and no one else. Keep a stash somewhere that you can sit for 5 minutes enjoy it step away from reality and then once you sip and savor that, open the door and back to reality and I don't mean Reality TV either! 7. Rocker with Ottoman This was a must have for me when breastfeeding and just feeding. These were the most precious times I spent with Brayden, just him and Mommy in his room rocking back and forth together, I will always cherish those moments. Advice What advice I can offer you is LISTEN to yourself and what works for you and Billy. Everyone has and will give their opinion trust me! But you have to take it all in and politely answer "thank you and I will consider that". Then walk away and say what you really want to say under your breather:) Everyone is different on how they raise their children, but judging others on how they raise theirs is something we should not do. I know I am a little different of a Mother than most but here is the reason why: I believe your relationship with your husband is just as important if not more than your relationship with your child. You and your husband fell in love with each other and then your child. Keep in mind that you still want to create that spark and passion when you have time:) to remind each other why you created this beautiful child, out of love for each other. Take trips with each other and don't talk about the baby, enjoy your time together, have date nights even when you are so tired, make the effort. I truly feel blessed with Brayden in Dave and my life and we love him more and more every day and thank God for bringing us such a wonderful, happy, hilarious child! But we also know that we helped create him the way he is based on NOT changing our lifestyle completely for him. My Doctor said to me "bring your baby into your life that you have created and the foundation you stand on, don't change it all around for your child." That was the best advice so far that I have gotten and taken. As long as our children are happy that is all that matters, we must be doing something right? I wish you and Billy the best and know that this baby is going to appreciate how lucky they are to have parents like you! Love you guys and best wishes, the Professor

16: "Enjoy your food"

17: "Dresses are always appropriate"

18: "Blondes always do it better"

19: Soak it all in....even the rough moments. The time passes so quickly and before you know it, they have their own personality and opinion. Get ready to experience love like you could not ever imagine! You are going to be AMAZING parents!! Love you, nicole xo

20: Meredith, First of all: -Nap time will be the new happy hour -Not showering all day is totally normal in the first few months -You will truly appreciate an uninterrupted shower and savor them as a mom -Play dates with babies are really for mommies to socialize with other mommies- and much needed! Awesome idea is to have a happy hour play date ;) -You will begin to have regular conversations about poop color, consistency, and regularity with other parents- and it will feel totally normal -Baby wipes are awesome for everything not just changing diapers: hand wipes, house cleaning, nose wiping and more! -Spanx will become the greatest invention- ever - Having my babies on a regular eat, sleep and activity schedule made life more predictable as a new mom and fosters happy babies and happy parents. Although you have to do what works best for your family, children do need consistency (parents appreciate a routine too). It also helps to give you scheduled time for yourself to: shower, talk to your husband/friends/family or nap yourself. -Take advantage of sleeping when your princess is in the first months- you will need to be rested - Try not to guilt yourself; All mother's have guilt on a daily basis, but you will be an amazing and loving mother-trust in that! - Reach out to other mommies for any question(s) you have but be prepared for much advice, take the piece(s) of advice that will work for you. - Schedule a date night at least once a month to connect with your husband and dress sexy. - Drink in the baby phase and try to appreciate it because the meaning of "time flies" will be much more significant to you as a mom You will be an amazingly loving and nurturing mother. I am so very excited for you to begin the beautiful journey of motherhood, as it will be the toughest but most rewarding job of your life. Much Love, Marie

25: WHEN YOU THOUGHT I WASN'T LOOKING A message every adult should read because children are watching you and doing as you do, not as you say. When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately wanted to paint another one. When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals. When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my favorite cake for me, and I learned that the little things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care of our house and everyone in it, and I learned we have to take care of what we are given. When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't feel good, and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up. When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come from your eyes, and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's all right to cry. When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you cared, and I wanted to be everything that I could be.. | When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.

Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend) influences the life of a child. How will you touch the life of someone today?

26: "Always sing, dance, and take crazy photos with the Mariachi band"

27: Congratulations!! You are beginning the next beautiful phase of your life. Surround your baby with love, kindness, and laughter. Work together to give your child the support that she will need all through her life. My best practical advice is to get lots of rest when you can because your baby will wake up to even happy noise. Work together as a team. Isn't that is what a family is, a team? Love, Pika

29: A poem Amy Harbour received from her mother... “Be strong. Be intelligent. Smile. Know that beauty has everything to do with how you feel about yourself And nothing to do with looks or other people’s opinions. Never do anything just because everyone else is if you believe it’s wrong. Always be true to yourself. Expect the best from life and that’s what you’ll get. Learn from your mistakes and failures. Believe in magic and wish on stars. Love and trust and be compassionate. Make faces. Play in mud puddles. Take bubble baths. Turn off all the lights and watch lightening storms. Dance, laugh, cry, and sing when you want to. Read everything you can get your hands on. Stand up for what is right especially if you stand alone. Don’t allow yourself or people around you to tolerate prejudices of any kind. Don’t be afraid to try something new. Do something daring at least once a week. Run through snow drifts. Spin in circles and roll down hills. Pet puppies, hold kittens, and talk to babies. Take afternoon naps. Stay up to watch the sunrise. Never apologize for being a woman or for being yourself. Never forget that I love you more than any other person in the world, No matter how far apart we are you will always be my daughter."- | A poem Amy Harbour received from her mother... “Be strong.

31: Many people will offer you unsolicited advice...listen to what you want and ignore the rest!!! Having one child certainly does not make anyone an expert! Unless someone has 5 or more children, they are still figuring it out bc every child is different and every situation is different! Don't be afraid to follow your maternal instincts...they are real and they are probably right! Give breastfeeding 3 weeks, if that's what you are planning to do. It will be awful getting started (I promise) but when you figure it out it will turn out to be easy and convenient. :) Join a mom group and use the other moms as a resource. The hard stuff will pass. Everyday you get to start over again and everything will fall into place after a few months and it will all be worth it! Lastly your little girl will be your legacy, you are now taking care of all the grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren etc (G-d willing) she will give you. Love her and enjoy her! Love you! ~Melanie | -Meredith and Mechal Green

35: Dear Billy & Meredith, We are so happy for you guys and excited to meet Baby Girl Sarracino. We know that your girl will have Meredith's beauty and eternal sweetness and Billy's sense of humor, financial acumen and hatred of mayonnaise. We already have so many fun memories with you two as a couple here in New York City and we can't wait to build new memories with you as a family. Our one piece of advice would be to give up all control and just go with it! Let's see if we can take our own advice when our time comes...Good luck and can't wait to meet her! Lyndsay & Phil Norman

36: "Always surround yourself with good girlfriends"

37: NYC

38: "Don't bite off more than you can handle;)"

39: "Always keep a close relationship with your mother"
