Early Bird Gets a Worm!

It’s true, almost 365 episodes of The Today Show will run before my book, When My Baby Dreams, is released by HarperCollins (it’s scheduled for January, 2012), but if you tune into today’s episode of The Today Show (that’s February 10th, for those of you keeping score), you might see Mila’s first big publicity hit and one unpublished daydream photo! Woohoo!

And since 365 todays means 365 tomorrows, and you might get really busy and forget about these funny little dreams by the time 2012 rolls around, I thought I’d set up a mailing list and do the remembering for you!

So, if you’re interested about the book news, just type in your e-mail address below, and I’ll send out a couple of notes as soon as we get closer to publication!

All the best,
Adele Enersen

  1. A huge congratulations! What a labor of love, I'm so happy it will be soon available for us all to enjoy! Thank you! :)

  2. (sorry, one more thing- I think it's crazy that it's already the morning of February 10th for you, my husband and I are about to go to sleep!)

  3. Beautiful, dear! I'm so happy for you! ^^ I'll get the book as soon as possible for me, and I know it'll better than expected.


  4. I loved your photos and following your blog was a bright spot of my day. I was sad to see when you had to remove your photos. And that's why I felt compelled to pass this on when I found it, someone seems to have copied your photos and has posted them. Good luck with all your endeavors!

  5. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Always wondered what all my babies dreamt about? Especially when they were newborns. I think they were dreaming about heaven.

  6. Wspaniale! Pozdrawiam z Rzeszowa w Polsce! :)

  7. Congrats!!! I'll love to buy your book.

    Have a nice day.


  8. Love your photos too. I was just wondering why the book will be published in January and not December, in time for Christmas gift shopping?

  9. A long time coming but it will be worth it Adele. Hope you and your family have had a great week.

  10. Unfortunately we don't get the Today Show here in the UK, but I shall be awaiting the book with anticipation. It should come out just in time for my daughters 3rd birthday (we're just rolling up to her 2nd) and I think she'd just love looking through all the pictures.

  11. So exciting...happy your book being published...even if it is a year away!

  12. So, so happy you're doing the book. It will be great! :)

  13. Congratulations! Your photos brought so much happiness into my world as I was fighting Cancer. I am so happy you are being published and I hope your photos can make others as happy as they made me.

  14. How exiting with the upcoming book! :)

  15. Congratulations!! I'm so happy for you and all those who love to share Mila's dreams =)

  16. i am SO HAPPY for the news of a book!

    i blogged about you today and tried to create a daydream of my own with my son...not an easy task!

    you are soooooooooo talented and i wish you and your family everything wonderful you deserve!



  17. Only Mila could turn a skirt (hat?) into sunshine, and a rug into a meadow. I just came across your work - so inspired! Big congratulations on your new book.

  18. My sister in law sent me an e-mail with some of your photos, from the United States then I looked up more information on you and your beautiful baby to find out your in Finland! Wow I'm in Sweden. Silly how small our world really is. I wish you the best of luck! I enjoy reading how much you love your baby girl.

  19. It will be possible to buy it in France ?

    If not, my niece who leave in New York will buy it for me so I subscribe

    Congratulations for all you did and you will do with Mila.

    Kiss from France

  20. saw the spot on the Today show....congratulations on the exposure for the will no doubt be a great success!

  21. discovered your blog today. (because yes, one of my neighbours is one of those who emails stuff so I just googled your name)I am soo impressed with your creativity wow. Brava, such talent and creativity. I wish you all the best with your book and no, I did not see you on tv (I'm not a big tv watcher) but I think your beautiful book (what else is it going to be!) will become a major best seller. Funny how someone else's creativity can tweak your heart and make you want to create [s]. Not the way you do, I do not have that in me. But I am a writer and I can always appreciate someone else's talent.
    hugs and kisses from Austin TX,

  22. Am I the only person who finds this disturbing? Yes, you are very creative, imaginative and talented and your child is a sweet soul. But, when you sleep it is with the knowledge that (hopefully) no one is using you as a prop for a photo shoot, posed and moved around.

  23. Flidais: No, you are not the only one, just in the minority. And that's totally ok with me. :) I don't like everything in the world either. That's life.

    Btw, am I the only mother who has taken photos from her sleeping child? ;)
    At least I take photos of my own child and not others, that would be creepy...oh, well, at least if you are not the Anne Geddes. Huh? :)

    Hey, all the best for you anyway!

  24. Just wanted to bring this to your attention on the off-chance you didn't give them permission to use your photos.
    Love you blog, by the way!

  25. Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I will be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon.

  26. Dear Adele, a friend of mine send me an email with your lovely photos today. Hope its allright that I posted a few of them in my blog. Its incredible and I had much fun looking at the pictures and your wonderful daughter. Great you could find a publisher to make a book of this periode !
    Greetings Sibylle

  27. My auntie told me about your photos, so I clicked on your video - such a talented family! Your scenes are so creative and it's odd that anyone could think that photographing your sleeping baby the way you do is disturbing. The kids I showed your video to thought it was fantastic, and we all know babies need their sleep!
    All the best, and congratulations on the book.

  28. What a fascinating blog! I'm going to spend some time tonight looking at past photos. Your photos really are art!

  29. I just found your blog today and I enjoyed it all. I am looking forward to the book coming out - congratulations! I actually sent you an email but then I read further and I see that you are overwhemed with them. I wanted to find out about sharing the video you have on your Behind the Blog page. I know it is on YouTube, but is it really ok with you for others of us to post it on our blogs? I want to respect your desires in this. I am hoping my (very few!) followers will see it and want to buy your book! If you would rather I not post the video, I'll just write about your blog and the book.

    I will be back for visits!

  30. I was just writing to tell you to create a book. Phew! So glad you've done so! It's love.

  31. I can't believe I have only just found you now!! You are a amazing talented woman!! I am going to feature you on my blog because if anyone doesn't know about you I can't keep you a secret! I absolutely adore watching the youtube video, I have just had my second daughter and I could only dream of having photos as beautiful as these! You are incredibly creative!

  32. Hello Mila,
    I have recomended your blog. You can see the post in this link

We love your blog so we have informed about the publication of your book and we have encouraged our readers to subscribe to get the news about it. Good luck with you book.

    I really love your pictures! If you understand a little bit of portuguese go to my blog:

    Kisses for you and for Mila...


  39. Hi Adele and greetings from Brisbane, Australia.
    I've just discovered your amazing work after my Mum sent me some of your incredible photos of Mila. She's angling for a grandchild and I think she's hoping they will inspire me to give her one!
    I've written a blog post about your beautiful work.

  40. I love your work. We have made our little tribute in my blog of creativity for busy parents.

  41. Oh my God! I just saw your pictures in a TV program from my country: México. And the pictures got my atention. Let me tell you that your baby girl is so cutte and pretty. I love her. And then my curiosity increased. I took my laptop and google your name and finally found your blog. Oh my God is so awesome, you are so inspirational.

    And after all this speech the point is: CONGRATULATIONS! love your work really. Greetings from México.



  43. Thanks for Mila's daydreams, I'm delighted with your photos. I'm a 31 years old mum, I have 2 months baby and I would like to know what my daughter is dreaming when she sleeps.... I love to observe her whe she sleeps, it's so peaceful!!!

    Kind regards from Spain

  51. I have no idea if you're aware of this re-posting of yours or not but here you go:

    It came up on my StumbleUpon.

  52. I was on facebook, and over on the right hand side where all the advertising is, I saw a little picture of what looked like your Mila...Looked like the same style photography and everything. I did a quick page snip of it (which included the business web address, I'm pretty sure). I thought I had remembered you asking anyone who saw this type of thing to contact you. I have the picture of what I snipped saved on my computer if you ever want me to send it to you. I would have emailed you, but could not find an email address for you.

    Hope you are doing well, and that sweet Mila is not growing up too fast!

    ~Sara K.

  53. Hello Sara! Oh my, please, send me that preview. You can find my email from my profile contact:

    Yes, we are doing well. I seriourly should update my blog but it has been so nice to have a good vacation from all that jazz, and just concentrate on my family and california. Soon we'll be back in Helsinki, so maybe that's good reason to update. :) All the best for you, (for all of you guys!)


  54. Hopefully ok.

  55. Adele, is your little girl 1 year yet? How did she do on your plane ride to California? I am flying with my 10 month old to Finland in a few weeks to visit my cousins, aunts and uncles. I'm so nervous for the flight!

  56. Zamre: Yes, we're ok, just back in Finland with the influenza :), otherwise great! I know, I know, I should blog something soon.

    lindsay: Hey! Yes, she's very soon 1 year, and we are so excited!

    Actually, the plane ride to States from Finland and back was quite pleasant, since (at least Finnair) airplanes has this baby basket and special seats for families with the babies. (in the inner flights in States we didn't get basket, seatbelt for babies, or more space, so it was very stressfull way of traveling.) Even when we return to Finland, and Mila was actually little bit too tall for that basket (it's for babies under 70cm), they put that basket to our legroom, and Mila took a long nap there. (I saw whole movie during her nap, I call that luxury!)

    Just request baby basket from your airline, I'm sure your flying will be great! If you fear your baby might have problems with ears during the take off or landing, try nursing, or give him/her something to drink or suck while air pressure changes. Welcome to Finland!

  57. Thanks! I think Finnair is more luxury than American Airlines that I'm flying so I might not have those cool baby baskets, but I'll ask.

    I'm excited to buy something Marimekko, maybe something Aarikka and mostly just to sit by the lake and eat makkara. :)
