    You can also complete the ovals and use the manual blur tool (looks like a drop of water icon) and paint around the edges - probably the easiest way for beginners?

    When you focus your lens, aim it on the infant in such way that he/she is clear while the depth of field blurs the surroundings. Experiment on it by way of different combinations of f'/stops and shutter speeds.
