This isn’t going to come as a surprise to anyone who has been around me since Caloway was born. I am a really bad baby sharer. I want other people to hold him and love on him, but I can’t seem to offer him up. If anyone has ever asked I have handed him over, but I don’t really offer. I can’t help it, I don’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings. It just feels natural for me to have him in my arms while he is being admired.
I know I am ridiculous, I am laughing at myself as I write this. But this is my therapy…getting it out in the open. This way if you know I struggle and you want to hold Cal, just ask! Then as long as you wash your hands/use antibacterial gel, pass a physical and background check (you too grandma!) I will gladly hand him over 🙂 The only exception to this rule is Cory. I don’t mind sharing with him.
I also will try not to hover over you telling you things he likes and what he doesn’t. Again, this isn’t meant to be rude if I slip up and say to turn him facing out because he likes to look around. I think it comes from a good place. A place where I am his mom and spend 24 hours a day with him, and I know what he likes and what makes him comfortable. I want to save you the “figuring it out” time so you can enjoy him too. Now that I think about it I am pretty thoughtful. Because I am saving my friends and family the agony of not knowing what Caloway likes best. You’re Welcome.
Please be patient with me. I want you to hold him, but I have a hard time giving him over. So just ask if you want to hold him and I will gladly share for a little bit.
