(I made you an announcement, gaspode. If you want a "real" one with her inches, and different pics, fonts or colors, I would be glad to make one for you!

Is it just me or does that blanket look like a teeny-tiny straitjacket?

Swaddling apparently mimics the tightness of the womb, restricting movement and adding comfort before babies can comfort themselves.

When a baby is swaddled during the night to sleep (wrapping a baby like a little burrito), they will sleep longer and sounder. They also learn that this is a sign of a long sleep ahead. Your baby will take best to this swaddling if it is done from day one when you arrive home.

gaspode and mr gaspode, Madeleine is utterly beautiful. Those cheeks, so round and peachy and pink. Those eyes. Loved all the photographs.

You both look like such tender, caring, loving parents. Congratulations again on the birth of your child.

nicky: I know. I was kidding. Coupled with the kid's expression in that shot, it just jumped into my head is all.

You made a real person! So cute.

Coincidentally, now my nipples are sore.
She looks like both of you.

How are you doing, woman?

How soon until you get to dress her funny?
i will match you with couture cat ensembles.

Greetings tiny human! She's sooo beautiful.
Eth's right, though. The whole point of having tiny babies is so you can dress them funny. Or draw moustaches on them. Nothing draws attention like a baby with facial hair.

Oh man, is swaddling totally a parenting Jedi skill. Both my kids would flip out if they weren't cocooned.

Madeleine looks very sweet.

What a pretty little person!

I somehow managed to miss the other thread (stupid head cold and work, grr), so please accept my hearty congratulations now.

Sleep whenever you can!

Oh man, she is a total wise little Buddha baby. You both look amazing. I am a little bit in awe of you! Well done, new mama and papa. Welcome, Maddie.
