Practice Makes Perfect?

Now that we have two newborns in the family...one born 3 weeks ago and one born just this week (still so teeny, tiny), we've decided we need to get in high gear with teaching Hailey a little bit about babies.  She's always been the baby so she isn't around them much.  We've been working on signing "baby", showing her how to be gentle and how to feed a baby a bottle.  We are proud to say that she did sign "baby" on facetime earlier this week with my 3 week nephew and his mom.  My heart fills with such joy watching her learn new things!

Thought you might enjoy seeing Hailey "care" for her baby...I think she might need a little more practice!







Is she kissing the baby or administering CPR?

  1. Cute, knowing infant CPR is very important, too. A wise girl, indeed.

    1. I think all of you are reaching! We are going to have to keep her more than arm's length away from both babies for a loooonnnngggg time!

    1. Probably trying to bite the baby!

  4. Hailey is ready! She can give CPR--she clearly rolled the baby, checking the airway, and gave the important rescue breathes.

    1. You are overly optimistic! She was more likely trying to take a bite out of the baby!

  5. She is so cute! And reminds me a lot of Kennedy with her baby. We still need a lot of practice there too. I'm not sure we'll have it down before baby brother arrives!

    1. Our issue too is now that Hailey has teeth...her kisses can be dangerous! Good luck!

  6. Have you seen that video of Kamdyn slamming the baby into the little car seat? Haha. I guess they learn gentleness later. Love Hailey's cute flag outfit.

  7. It's fun to see how different boys and girls are. In our house we don't even know the word "doll":)
