Safe Baby Handling Tips

While Jonathan and I are super excited to be having a baby there are certainly moments of fear, doubt and panic. I got to thinking today about my last babysitting experience. The event wasn't anything special but the time frame seriously shook me up. I was 22 at the time and I'm currently 33. That's right . . . I haven't been alone with small child in over a decade!!!!!!! Ahhhhh! People keep telling us that because we are older we will make better parents. Gosh, I hope that's true . . .

So, I wanted to share this little pamphlet I found online. I figure if Jonathan and I memorize these diagrams then we should be OK.

Public Announcement -- Baby on Board

Although most of you already know (seeing as we started blabbing as soon as we found out) it is time for the official announcement. We are expecting a baby in November! Our little guy or gal is 12 weeks along and is due on 11/11/11. (Cool right?!)

If this is the first time you are hearing about our upcoming arrival we hope that you will not be offended that we didn't tell you earlier. The truth is that we enjoy sharing our news and hearing people's reactions but it can all be a bit overwhelming sometimes. So, if we call you in a few weeks or months (or on our kid's first birthday) please feel free to act surprised.
