Important bedtime teaching...

I walked in on something a little unsettling last night. 

 The kids were waiting for us to come in their room for the usual bedtime routine, and I heard hysterical laughter.  Normally, that would have been adorable and charming...you know, one of those moments that makes you so happy to be a parent.  When I actually walked into the room, I discovered the laughter was coming from Jack and Bianca "knocking" the dolls in the head over the bed as hard as they could, like some sort of piñata or something.

Oh brother...I knew it was time for a lesson about being gentle with babies. Afterall, there will be one in the house soon!

First, daddy showed the kids how to gently wrap baby Delaney {yes, that's what we have decided to name the sweet thing...pretty darling isn't it?!?}.

Spead out the blanket, then put Delaney at the top, VERY softly.  Then fold up the middle.

Then wrap her up tightly (but gently!) like a burrito.


Make sure to hold her head, and give gentle kisses.

Aaah, much better than treating the little one like a piñata.

Your turn Miss Bianca...

She was more of an observant learner.  I'm sure she was just soaking it all in.



And make sure to give gentle kisses, that's the most important part.


I don't know, maybe baby Delaney will have a chance at survival afterall!

Jill, your kiddos are adorable! You make the cutest pregnant lady EVER! And I love the name for your new little one. I sent an invite, it's good to catch up with you and your cute fam. I'm glad you didn't turn out a creepo ;0)!

Oh Jill, I love the name Delaney! So darling!

And I couldn't help but laugh at Jake and Bianca for throwing around the baby doll pinata style!

I am sure they will be great little helpers once Delaney arrives!

Where did you hear the name Delaney? I only ask because it is a doctor that I work with's last name. Small world.

Funny and cute at the same time. I can't wait to see the new little springer and I think the name is perfect! I'm so excited for all the fun new changes.

It should be 50 cm (20 inches) or more.[url=http://www.coachonline-outlet-store.com/]coach store online[/url] In any case you have to feel comfortable when reading from that distance. If you want to read faster then you should rather read the text from your greater than a shorter distance to possess more text in your field of vision. Proper light conditions can be important. If you are reading from visual display unit then there should be enough background light as part of your room. If you are sitting behind your computer in a dark place, then there is a big contrast between the screen and the background, which will cause your eyes to have tired fast and it can slow down your examining speed. In addition, you have to avoid direct sunlight using your laptop screen as it will make reading difficult. You may use this cursor for keeping course while reading from computer screen.[url=http://www.coachonline-outlet-store.com/]Coach Factory Online[/url] Place it on the left edge belonging to the text. Start reading and step the cursor down vertically so that it is always pointing to the tier you read.
