Taking Care of Baby

DH and I took a drive to NJ this weekend to attend a Baby Care class. It was given by the leader of our adoption support group.

The best thing about it was no pregnant bellies! This class is only open to people pursuing adoption. Awesome. It was only 2.5 hours long but, chock full of good parenting tips such as Must Haves for nursery, how to clean the umbilical cord, picking a pediatrician, diapering, swaddling etc. We practiced on baby dolls. DH and I got a pretty decent looking baby. Some looked more like toddlers and there was one that look liked Chu.ckie.

We had quite a few laughs and learned alot. It was a good way to pass the time because this waiting sure does suck!

Chuckling at the Chu.ckie remark!

Sounds like a helpful class. May you get to put the lessons to good use soon.

Getting a Chuckie doll would very much creep me out!

I've been away from your blog and just found it again! So glad to hear about the adoption process. I would love to go to a care class like that with no pregnant bellies. I wonder if people doing surrogacy could get in? Anyway, looking forward to hearing how your adoption journey goes!
