Baby in a Basket is a wonderful picture book for children! Based on a true story, it is set in Alaska, during the winter months. Beginning at a calm pace, it progresses to an appropriate level of suspense and excitement for a young child. The beautifully expressive illustrations assist in the interpretation as they set the story alive! Ted Rand’s use of color and texture makes you want to run your hand across the pages, and you almost expect to feel more than smoothness. His illustrations are a superb enhancement to a story that ends in celebration! I can’t help wondering if it was nominated for the Caldecott Award.
Arrange all your items in a nice way. Sometimes it can be helpful to fill the bottom of the basket with some cotton balls, diapers, a baby cloth or something similar so things fit into the basket more smoothly.

One of the problems with having a new baby is that you crave healthy food but have no time to make it for yourself. The beauty of this gift basket from Mouth.com—home to many great food gift baskets for all occasions—is that it includes items that are both snacky and at least somewhat healthy. (See: Barely Sweet Gluten-Free Granola, coconut pecan granola bars, and nori sesame gourmet popcorn.) It also includes some straight-up non-healthy treats—like the all-natural white-chocolate macadamia peanut butter—and a cute unisex swaddle.
Egyptologist Jan Assmann concludes that Strabo was the historian “who came closest to a construction of Moses’ religion as monotheistic and as a pronounced counter-religion.” It recognized “only one divine being whom no image can represent… [and] the only way to approach this god is to live in virtue and in justice.”

“These are so great. They’re a green product, and older babies can learn to hold these bottles more easily than others.” —Gretchen Radzik, art teacher at Lower Manhattan Community Middle School, mother of a 3-year-old and a 1-year-old
After nine months of not eating raw fish, almost nothing feels as luxurious as a decadent sushi feast for dinner—even if it’s via takeout rather than at the chef’s counter. Send your friend the gift of raw tuna. She will thank you.
“Mustela baby products are the best-smelling baby products in the world. They’re also European, so obviously superior in every way. I was given this exact gift bag, and I loved, loved, loved it. I thought the thing that was like ‘no rinse cleansing fluid’ was dumb, and that I’d be unlikely to ever use it — since I planned on bathing my baby like a human being. But — this stuff is amazing for cleaning under a baby’s neck. They get very gnarly neck cheese from little dribbles of milk. It’s also good after a big poop. Regardless of how well you wipe a butt with baby wipes, it will still have a faint poop smell that you might notice if you’ve literally ever kissed your baby’s ass.” — Elizabeth Verrelli, event planner, mother of a 2-year-old
Onesies and booties are staple baby shower gifts, but you can give it a bit of pizzazz by giving them onesies with little capes that have their superhero name printed right on them. Cute pink jumpers with frills and flounces make the sweetest baby girl gift. Cardboard books are also great baby gifts for showers, as they introduce babies to the idea of books, but ensure safety against paper cuts and ripped pages everywhere.

35. An Egyptian priest named Moses, who possessed a portion of the country called the Lower Egypt, being dissatisfied with the established institutions there, left it and came to Judaea with a large body of people who worshipped the Divinity. He declared and taught that the Egyptians and Africans entertained erroneous sentiments, in representing the Divinity under the likeness of wild beasts and cattle of the field; that the Greeks also were in error in making images of their gods after the human form. For God [said he] may be this one thing which encompasses us all, land and sea, which we call heaven, or the universe, or the nature of things….
My neighbor is about to become a first-time mom. Along with the typical baby gift, I’d also like to give her a new mom gift basket. Since we haven’t had children yet, I’m not sure what to include in the basket? Can anyone give me some ideas for what to put in a new mom’s gift basket?

In the late eighteenth century, the deist Thomas Paine commented at length on Moses’ Laws in The Age of Reason (1794, 1795, and 1807). Paine considered Moses to be a “detestable villain”, and cited Numbers 31:13–18 as an example of his “unexampled atrocities”. In the passage, the Jewish army had returned from conquering the Midianites, and Moses has gone down to meet it:
Jochebed is identified by some rabbis in the Talmud with Shiphrah, one of the midwives described by the book of Exodus as being ordered by Pharaoh to kill the new-born male children. In making this identification, the rabbis interpret the houses, with which the Book of Exodus describes God as having compensated the midwives, as having been those of priesthood and of royalty; these houses are interpreted by the Talmudic rabbis as allegorical references to Jochebed’s sons—Moses and Aaron respectively.
Tamales are relatively time-consuming to make from scratch, but they are exceptionally easy to reheat—in addition to being both delicious and filling. This Texas-based company sells tamales frozen, making them the perfect gifts for your friend who doesn’t have the time to whip up a batch on their own. The traditional gift box includes two dozen tamales made with a combination of ancho pork, 3-cheese queso, black bean and Oaxaca cheese, and fresh corn poblano. Bonus: It’s unlikely that your friend has ever gotten a box of tamales in the mail before.

In subsequent years, theologians linked the Ten Commandments with the formation of early democracy. Scottish theologian William Barclay described them as “the universal foundation of all things… the law without which nationhood is impossible. …Our society is founded upon it. Pope Francis addressed the United States Congress in 2015 stating that all people need to “keep alive their sense of unity by means of just legislation… [and] the figure of Moses leads us directly to God and thus to the transcendent dignity of the human being.
The people who were from the family of Joseph were called Israelites or Hebrews. As it happens there were more and more Israelites than ever before. The Israelites had children, and their children had children and soon there was too many to count.
So your best friend had a baby. And you’re completely clueless about the whole enterprise. What do you bring to the shower? Do you go with something cute or useful? (Probably useful.) But what’s the most useful? We decided to find out, asking an array of the world’s foremost baby experts (mostly new moms themselves, but also shop owners, medical professionals, and doulas): What’s the best baby-shower gift? Below, the very helpful responses. (And if you want to start a registry on Amazon, where most of our items are available, it’s a cinch.)
“A pair of bloomers are sweet, practical, and not something you would necessarily buy for yourself. For the L.A. crowd, they’re ideal for hot summer days, and in winter some of our customers put tights underneath them.” —Bronagh Staley, owner, Sweet William

“For any woman who’s just had her first child, her third, or just had surgery. It helps new moms feel that sense of stability in their bodies after they give birth. Some women complain about that phantom belly and their equilibrium being off. This is great for pelvic-floor health. Women who wear them, especially after surgery, tend to just feel better and have more energy.” — Domino Kirke, certified birth doula and educator, Carriage House Birth
“I take this little green mat everywhere: Restaurants, friends’ houses, and I even use it at home. It helps me avoid the kids’ food being on dirty germ-filled tables, plus cleanup is easy: You just move the mess from table to sink. Once kids are a little older, it’s great for playing with play-doh, too.” —Amanda Olsen
Sigmund Freud, in his last book, Moses and Monotheism in 1939, postulated that Moses was an Egyptian nobleman who adhered to the monotheism of Akhenaten. Following a theory proposed by a contemporary biblical critic, Freud believed that Moses was murdered in the wilderness, producing a collective sense of patricidal guilt that has been at the heart of Judaism ever since. “Judaism had been a religion of the father, Christianity became a religion of the son”, he wrote. The possible Egyptian origin of Moses and of his message has received significant scholarly attention.[page needed] Opponents of this view observe that the religion of the Torah seems different from Atenism in everything except the central feature of devotion to a single god, although this has been countered by a variety of arguments, e.g. pointing out the similarities between the Hymn to Aten and Psalm 104.[page needed] Freud’s interpretation of the historical Moses is not well accepted among historians, and is considered pseudohistory by many.[page needed]
Food: New moms don’t have time to shop and cook from scratch, so frozen meals that just need reheating in the microwave are a huge help. Complete, one pot/pan meals are best. Try to include both family-sized dinners and single-serving lunches. Ideally, all containers should be disposable because new moms also don’t have time for housework. Consider adding disposable plates, bowls, cups (hot and cold), and utensils. Single serving packages of snacks and cold cereals would also be appreciated.
Moses is mentioned more often in the New Testament than any other Old Testament figure. For Christians, Moses is often a symbol of God’s law, as reinforced and expounded on in the teachings of Jesus. New Testament writers often compared Jesus’ words and deeds with Moses’ to explain Jesus’ mission. In Acts 7:39–43, 51–53, for example, the rejection of Moses by the Jews who worshipped the golden calf is likened to the rejection of Jesus by the Jews that continued in traditional Judaism.
“My baby did not want to be put down — she would’ve crawled back in the womb if she could. Both my husband and I used this carrier 24/7 during the ‘fourth trimester.’ Easy to put on, breathable, and the best part is, it’s waterproof.” — Maggie Caron, operating room nurse, mother of a 1-year-old
The king of Egypt had a daughter. She went to the river. She saw the basket and opened it. The baby began to cry. The king’s daughter was sorry for the baby. She wanted to take him to her home. She needed someone to take care of the baby. She wanted to be his mother.
In the Moses story related by the Quran, Jochebed is commanded by God to place Moses in an ark and cast him on the waters of the Nile, thus abandoning him completely to God’s protection. The Pharaoh’s wife Asiya, not his daughter, found Moses floating in the waters of the Nile. She convinced the Pharaoh to keep him as their son because they were not blessed with any children. The Quran’s account has emphasized Moses’ mission to invite the Pharaoh to accept God’s divine message as well as give salvation to the Israelites. According to the Quran, Moses encourages the Israelites to enter Canaan, but they are unwilling to fight the Canaanites, fearing certain defeat. Moses responds by pleading to Allah that he and his brother Aaron be separated from the rebellious Israelites. After which the Israelites are made to wander for 40 years.

“This is a super-gross concept but so helpful. It’s essentially a straw for sucking snot from your baby’s nose. Someone gave this to me; I didn’t pay much attention until I was up half the night with a newborn who was so congested it kept her awake. Did you know that when babies are born they swallow a bunch of amniotic fluid and it gets stuck in their sinuses? I didn’t either. This thing was essentially for those first few weeks and continues to be a lifesaver (until this kid can blow her own nose.)” —Cynthia Domingo-Foraste, attorney, mother of a 9-month-old
