We took a childbirth class before we had Evan, and I’m positive they showed us how to swaddle a baby tightly in a blanket. But guess what? I am the worst at swaddling. Ever.

Really, Jarom has always been the one to swaddle our babies. By the time we got around to June, I had to buy one of those velcro swaddle-sack things, because I just couldn’t figure out how to [properly] swaddle her.

So in the hospital with Christian, they gave him to me with this nice ready-to-swaddle blanket . . . and Jarom and I laughed through our tears as I handed swaddling duty over yet again.

Some things never change.

Christian was born at 25 weeks and weighed 1 lb 13.5 oz. He was 12.5 inches long. Tiny!

    They always get out if I swaddle them. I used the velcro blankies with the last two. I am glad that there were moments of laughter when you had Christian.

    So cute and so tiny! I’m glad that Jarom still got to take the role as the swaddler for this child too. Christian fits in just like the rest of the littles in your fam!

    So precious and tiny :) I’m surprised by his hair– I wouldn’t have guessed there would be so much. I am grateful you had that opportunity to smile and laugh (even through the tears). I hope you know I’m still right here when you need something. I love you friend :) Oh, and by the way, I am also really bad at swaddling.

Be opinionated! We certainly are.
