Nana's 1st Babysitting Gig . . .

Monday I took care of Ethan while Kari & her sister, Kim, were doing some errands. It's been so long since I've taken care of an infant all by myself. I have to admit I was a little nervous. The girls were only gone for about an hour. He slept most of the time, but did wake up hungry. I was able to warm a bottle, feed & burp him all by myself! Nerves were gone. Babysitting is kind of like riding a bike. Even though you haven't done it for a while it comes back to you quickly!

Oh what a joy! There's nothing better than taking care of a baby. The world just seems to fade away and you can get lost in the sweetness of holding that new little life. I miss those days! Enjoy!!

How cute!
I would be the same way Carol. It's been so long since I've even held a newborn. How nice that Kari has you close by to help out.
I know she appreciates you very much.
