"When the baby comes, can I hold her?"
Of course you can.
"I hope she won't be all wet. Will a doctor or nurse dry her off?"
The midwives will probably dry her off and wrap her up.
"Can I help you cut the cord?"
Well, that depends on what time the baby's born. Some babies come in the middle of the night.
"What will she look like?"
We don't really know. I think she'll probably look a lot like you looked as a baby.
"What games do babies play?"
Really little babies mostly eat and sleep and poop. But older babies like peek-a-boo, and they like things that rattle, and they like it when you show them a toy and then hide it behind your back. They like 'baby exercise,' and they like 'toes in the toaster'—
"What's 'toes in the toaster'?"
[Rob demonstrates with Westley's feet; we both chant.] "Toes in the toaster, toes in the toaster, toes in the toaster...POP UP!"
"What's the baby's name going to be?"
We're working on that.
"It should be something pretty."
