First Time Ever

This afternoon, for the first time ever in my life, I asked a mom if I could hold her baby.

Before Q was born, I'd held a baby three times. My high school teacher's son once, and a dance friend's daughter twice. Since then, I've certainly held babies during playgroups, especially when another mom was trying to get a bite to eat or otherwise needed help.

What was different today? The young'un was cute, and I wanted a snuggle.

We might need a bigger house.

I am with you!!! Those little ones are too cute not to hold these days.

Can't wait to hear about Chicago.

K Goose's mom - It's amazing how little and floppy they are. Our "big" kids are so mobile now.

You really do forget how small babies are when you're dealing with a toddler.

Seeing the babies last year at BlogHer made me want another. Perhaps there will be another post-BlogHer baby boom this year?

It was great to see you again, too, and you can hold Mira anytime you want!

I used to be the same way. I didn't really like babies until I had my own.
