I'm getting better with this whole baby holding thing - I've held three babies this year alone! Three!
Excluding when I was younger (I presume I would have held each of the bro's at least once), my efforts this year have tripled those of the past 25 years of my life.
I'm like 300% productive or something of the sort!
So - Baby Pros and Cons:
Breakable and losable.
Lovely baby smell (talc and rainbows).
The OTHER baby small (rot and misery).
Adorable cooing and laughing and mewing.
Strangling choking rage, worsens as lungs develop.
Easily amused, love to be tickled and play stupid games like putting a bib over their face.
Can be cranky for no reason at all.
Again, hooray for chuckles and giggles.
Well, I think EVERYONE knows how gross they can be.
I think I'll stick to just holding the occassional baby - my popcorn for dinner woke me up on and off for two hours this morning with nausea, and I can't say I enjoyed that all.
