A young friend writes:

My soon-to-be-wife has expressed to me her frustration that, in most literature she has read, babies always seem to be portrayed as burdens, or at least they focus on the unpleasant experiences of caring for babies. She wishes she could find some “happy baby stories,” stories that depict motherhood — particularly early motherhood and childbirth — more positively.  So do any of you have recommendations for such stories? We’d be very grateful.

Please jump in if you have suggestions. Nothing, I admit, comes to my mind right off.
