Jennie Finch, member of the USA defending gold medal softball team, is currently competing at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China. The downside? Being away from her 2-year-old son, Ace Shane, with husband (Minnesota Twins AAA league pitcher) Casey Daigle. Jennie said she is keeping in touch with Ace over the phone while she competes in China,
“The other day we counted to 11 on the phone. You just have to kind of trick him, you know, to talk about giraffes or elephants or something like that. He told me he loves me to the moon and back the other night. They did say though that he saw me on TV the other night at Opening Ceremonies and he shouted, ‘Momma’ and was jumping off the couches, so, that kind of made it all better, knowing that he’s hopefully a proud two-year-old back home.”
Jennie is also known for her role on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice last winter.

It’s no secret that former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham wants a little girl - but sources close to Posh say a fourth could damage her body,
“She wanted to try for a baby after the Spice Girls finished touring. But she’s put her plans on hold while she sees what can be done to help her. She knows she is putting her health at risk if she dismisses the advice of her doctors and has another C-section.”
Victoria and husband David Beckham have three boys, Brooklyn, 9, Romeo, 5, and Cruz, 3, whom were all delivered via c-section. What do you think – will Vickie be too posh to push the 4th time around?

Making drawing fun and easy for children ages 2 and up, The Art House, in conjunction with Therapy Inc., has created the first in a planned series of children’s instructional DVD’s. Volume 1 teaches children of all ages how to draw using basic shapes as a base to create the artwork of their dreams. Friends Tiffany Jennings and Amy Wilkes, both mothers, came up with the idea for the series when they realized there was a lack of educational and easy-to-follow art videos. Jennings, an elementary school teacher, and Wilkes, a USC School of Cinematic Arts graduate used their creative and innovative minds together to create the Art House. The DVD is simple to follow and has both live action and animation to keep children engaged. This is such a fun and educational video – my 2-year-old son absolutely loves it and we’re sure to get lots of good use out of it for years to come. Celebrity fans of Art House include Brooke Shields, Tina Fey, Kim Raver, Jon and Kate Plus 8 and Conan O’Brian. Go to the Art House webiste for further information on this educational DVD.

Laila Ali is 36 weeks along with her first child, Curtis Jr. The mom-to-be has been busy setting up Curtis’ eco-friendly nursery. She blogged about the overwhelming amount of products out there – and how she, “managed to find some items” that she really liked.
Laila wanted to share her finds with her fans – some of which were Flushable Diapers by GDiapers and BornFree Baby Bottles.
Of course the true test comes when my son actually arrives and I have a chance to put all this stuff to use! But I have done a lot of searching and have narrowed my choices down pretty well. Not to mention, I am very particular so I think I have some good picks!
Laila also talked about her decison to ‘go green’ in the nursery,
I am trying to stick to products that are earth friendly and free of chemicals that can be harmful to children. You know, I am trying to follow the advice I have learned in books such as Raising Baby Green. It is not always easy so I am taking it slow.
She went on to talk about the final details on her to-do list like finding “a good pediatrician” and researching cord-blood banking.
Laila plans to have a home birth after seeing by Ricki Lake’s The Business of Being Born.
