Seems like there are babies everywhere!
This is my girlfriend’s nephew, isn’t he a doll? I was actually scared to hold him, not that I would have had a chance to hold him between his aunt and his grandmother fighting over him!
But I was nervous because he moved around a lot, and was trying to lift his little head…I was afraid I wouldn’t hold him right.
That’s probably not a good sign considering my baby girl will be here in 3.5 months. Perhaps I should attempt to hold a few more tiny babies…
So I took my chances with this little girl. I wasn’t nervous at all for some reason, she curls up real little and fit right in my arms. And she wasn’t very wiggly, she just wanted to cuddle and sleep and eat. I could manage that.
Her mother assures me that she wiggles plenty, and cries at night…but while I was holding her she was nothing but beautiful.
So I have told my baby that when she gets here she’ll need to be calm, and quiet, and cuddle up real tight so I will feel comfortable holding her. I think she heard me, but if she’s as stubborn as her daddy she will surely be a wiggle worm.
And it sounds like a rocking chair is a must. I do have a rocking recliner in another room that may be a good place to lounge with the little kiddo. It’s ugly, but maybe that’s less important than practicality when it is 3am and I haven’t slept in 2 days. But that won’t happen to me, because I already told my baby that she has to be a good sleeper. And I know she’ll be a great listener!
I mean, I’m not setting myself up for disappointment am I?
How much work could that tiny little thing be anyway?
