the answers...

remember the post about how parenting is all questions? i've found some answers.

www.babycenter.com - this is the most comprehensive pregnancy/baby/child related website ever. if you are a regular reader here, you may remember me saying that i would get weekly emails during my pregnancy that would remind me how many weeks preggers i was as well as give me some facts about my child's development in the womb. well now they send me weekly emails about my baby's development. you can type something into their search engine and something related comes up - it's amazing. although i typed in "too much swing" and it was just a chat wall thing with other moms asking the same question.

what to expect the first year - i just got this book from my friend, jen, last week and i have been reading it nonstop since. very informative in a question and answer format. but it told me how much swing time there should be: 30minutes twice a day. oops.

so even though you may not care because you don't want these answers (i know - i felt the same way), i thought maybe someone out there, 2 - 3 years from now (wink, wink), will think back to this post and wonder, "i wonder if rebecca would lend me that book?" and the answer to that...is yes.

Yes, hmm...the swing thing. The one thing that I've come to find out you should be aware of (working in a children's hospital has some advantages!) is Ben's little melon - if he spends too much time in the swing, his soft little head could end up...misshapen. And then he might need a helmet. To shape his head. Yes, such things exist...

misshapen, how? flat? because that happens from lying in bed in his crib too...

New picture! I love it. I was just thinking the other day that you would need to change your picture now that there's a third Shulba.
