Reason #2,253 Why I Love Her

Just like her mother, she appreciates a well-placed pocket.

Whoah. Where did my hand just go?

Not sure I like this at all.

Although, this could be a wonderful thing. Pockets certainly are functional. I could, you know, put stuff in there. Interesting. Yes, I do believe pockets are growing on me. I like pockets.

CHECK IT. My hand stays hidden, yet I can move it around! Genius! I LOVE POCKETS!

Oh pockets, where have you been all my life?

    A little late but here’s a tip for the swaddling, which worked very well for my loved-to-be-swaddled babes. Try the Miracle Blanket (if you haven’t already) which may give you another few months. After that, buy one of those sleep sacks but with arms. Mine were carters. They made them up to size 2T I think. Anyways I bought them in a bigger size, then rubber-banded the sleeves to close them off so no baby hands could sneak in. Voila – insta-swaddle! After about 1yr of age we transitioned these sleeper things with hand coverings. For some odd reason as long as their hands were covered they slept hours longer. After around 18 mos it no longer made a difference. Now they’re 4 and 7 and still sleeping 12 hours/night.

    She is really so sweet and full of delight. I also enjoy pockets so I can relate with her glee.

    There IS nothing better than a well placed pocket – indeed. I loved this post, had me thinking of your little ones cuteness and love of pockets most of the day.
