First Baby Purchase

I did it.

I bought a baby-related item. More precisely, I bought four. Four swaddling blankets.

I have no idea if I will use these, if swaddling is the new hotness, or if studies now reveal that swaddling blankets are silent killers.

But damnit… I bought something baby-related, and this feels like a victory.

come on... GOLDFISH!

come on… GOLDFISH!

      Little things like this are starting to make this more and more real. It’s actually sorta fun.

    Cute! I think swaddling is still in. Makes the baby feel it’s still tucked up somewhere snug, and who doesn’t like that?

      Whew. That’s what I thought, but I’m learning there are tons of things my folks did when I was a kid that are now totally unacceptable. Ah, parenting in the 80’s…

      They are! Oh, our babies are going to be so well accessorized…
