Nick Gets His Wish!

Around ManilaForeign Service Life
July 29, 2011

Have I mentioned that my husband amuses the heck out of me?  Get this.  He’s been begging me for months to find him a baby that he can practice diapering and swaddling on.  He initially wanted a real baby, but I told him that was out of the question.  I thought he’d eventually stop asking, but his persistence increased once he got to MN and saw all the new baby gear.  He finally managed to convince my mom to bring home a life-size doll from the preschool on Thursday.  Here are some of the photographic  highlights from his practice session last night:

    I am dying. It looks like he has a shrunken lady in the baby bjorn. Good job Nick! We know even without practice you will be a natural. xo.

    I can’t lie – I am delighted that he’s taking such an active interest in parenting (and the preparation!) :)

  5. Sarah Novak says:

    Oh, he just keeps trying til he perfects it… He’s gonna be a stellar Dad!

  6. Sarah Novak says:

    The baby does look like a shrunken lady! Especially with all that hair…

  7. Mom says:

    Just shoot me!!!

  8. Bethany says:

    That is just so darn funny! Even though Seth is Will’s 2nd son, he still had to get a lengthy refresher in diapering! I, on the other hand, quickly learned to diaper efficiently at 3am with one eye barely open.
