Once our baby Abigail arrived, Aunt Hillary created a critical role:
"Professional Baby Holder"
This role had definite boundaries that could not be crossed.
For example, it involved only a clean, sleeping baby and plenty of soft swaddling blankets.
Restraint was evident, though the temptation to share her gummy bears
with Abigail was tough to resist. And if Abigail doesn't tell, we may just never know exactly
what moved from the blanket to the lips...
Aunt Hillary taught our baby how to correctly extend the pinkie during her first
"girls' time" outing at the Sipping Streams tea house.
