Parenting 101

I'm sure the post title of Parenting 101 totally gripped you. Yea, I know what you're thinking. I don't have children.

Noted.

True.

However, one of my dearest friends ever is preggo and it is high time I shared this with the world in her honor.

"How to Swaddle Your Baby" 
by yours truly and Michael. But really just Michael.

Make sure your little one is lying still in a straight line. 

This is easy for newborns, but they quickly learn the art of defiance. 

If you wish, sprinkle some baby powder over the little guy. Gotta stay dry! 

Start swaddling from the legs up. Gently wrap your babe with love and care. 

Slow and steady wins the race. 

Make sure he's tucked in good! 

Don't forget to let him breathe! Not too tight now. 

Looking good. Nice technique. What a beautiful dough baby.

All finished! Now tuck your little angel child into beddy-by. 

The End. 

Mmmmm Ok perhaps that got a little morbid at the end. Analogy over. Don't bake your child! 

I have been meaning to share these pictures from when Michael makes stuffed bread as he calls it (stromboli as I call it?) but haven't gotten around to it until now - which is of course appropriate timing as my dearest friend (fine, I'll tell you... Princess Kate!) is now pregnant. Every time I see these pics, I think: swaddling. This looks like swaddling. Therefore, this must be how you swaddle. 

Naturally. 

Anyhoo, this bread is phenomenal.

He made three versions that night. Sausage and pepper, pepperoni, and ham and cheese.

It's all we ate for dinner for a few nights in a row.

Dripping in olive oil.

And then we ran a marathon.

NOT, but I wish.

C'est tres magnifique!

Happy swaddling to Kate, and those other mothers-to-be. You know who you are.

  10. Nice post. I learn one thing tougher on

    totally different blogs everyday. It

    would all the time be stimulating to read content from different

    writers and follow a bit of

    something from their store. I’d prefer to make use of some with
    the

    content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a
    hyperlink on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
