Dad, like most people, has always loved babies. Watching them is wonderful holding them is even better!  What is more relaxing than sitting and cuddling a little baby?

There are a couple of baby dolls at Dad’s home.  They can be found sitting on a comfy chair in the hall, next to the bird cage, or on the piano.  Recently Dad has spent hours cuddling one of these babies.  He takes the job very seriously.  The baby is usually wrapped in a blanket and is burped at regular intervals.  Loud talking when the baby is sleeping is quickly hushed.    If Dad becomes agitated the staff give him a baby to take care of and he quickly relaxes.

Some people might find it inappropriate to find an 88 year old man playing with dolls.  With four children and four grandchildren Dad spent many happy hours holding babies.  I think it is wonderful that he is able to relive such an important part of his life.
