Cuddle a Baby

If you have any little ones in your life, invite them over and cuddle away!  Any new parent would love a chance to get a multi-generational  pictures, especially if it’s followed by a chance to get an uninterrupted nap!  People with moderate stages of the disease are generally still capable of safely holding a baby (just make sure they’re sitting down if balance is a concern).  Those in the late stages of the disease may not be able to hold the baby, but would still love to smell that baby smell or let the baby grasp their finger with their cute baby hands. This activity is ripe with potential stories, so be sure to ask lots of questions about common advice given to them as new parents, how their children acted as babies, their labor and delivery stories, etc.
