Parenting: Illustrated With Crappy Pictures by Amber Dusick
Oh, jeez. This one is hilarious; filled with all-new stories as well as a handful of fan favorites from her blog, the author presents a humorous take on the crappier side of parenting.
This book is beautiful. The rustic, home-y photography makes me want to whip up all the tinctures within. And there's something to be said about a great index.

I love Pantley's "no-cry" series books and this one is no exception; it's filled with useful tips of things to try when your toddler decides naps are no longer for him.
Blair's detailed how-to instructions make these projects seem do-able for someone with a penchant for DIY. It made me wish I had more time to work on the furniture graveyard in my attic...
