We had a dry run this weekend. We had the opportunity to babysit what has to be the most adorable and well behaved 9 month old baby in the world. I am happy to report that we did pretty well! The baby and my husband were both alive at the end of the day and we had a blast. Tony spent a good portion of the day on Friday baby proofing. I did not get to witness first hand him crawling around the floor looking for anything a baby might find our get into, however here is a pic of what he did to every sharp corner in our home.
yes... that is bubble wrap. LOL
Here is Tony checking to make sure the baby is breathing in our make shift crib on the love seat…
It was a great day and it gave us an opportunity to see how well we work as a team with a baby. And let me tell you seeing Tony feed, play with, comfort, and hold this baby made my sympathetic uterus skip a beat. He was amazing with him. Later he equated changing a dirty diaper to when he was first learning to disassemble, clean and reassemble an M-16 when he was in the Marines…. yeah, he really did.
It was hard to let the little one go when his mommy came to pick him up. But our baby will be here before we even know it and I for one cannot wait to meet him or her.
