I recently went to visit a dear friend in Bremerton, WA. Basically, it’s a suburb of Seattle, via ferry. This dear friend of mine recently had a baby (WAY AHEAD OF ME by the way!) and I just had to go see her and the 6 week old little man. It was a great (yet short) trip and I quickly learned the following things:
3. You REALLY DO change diapers every hour. Mothers are not lying when they claim this! I witnessed first hand the never-ending cycle of feed, burp, nap, diaper change, repeat. Seriously…it never stops and that “nap” was like 15 minutes. Unless you’re in Seattle for the day in which case the baby will sleep non-stop and then terrify you for the night ahead.
2. Babies know when you are phoning it in. They want you to be bouncing them with full concentration. Anything less than full attention will end in baby crying.
1. I quickly learned how to hold baby and bounce them while drinking wine! These are the things any good friend would want to master. Go ahead…I know…I should get an award.
But with this face…I’d do just about anything. Except change a diaper…I managed to avoid that the entire time…go ahead…give me that award!
Loved meeting you little guy! Stay cute!!
