In MJ's early days, after her initial I-am-so-tiny-I-could-crumble-from-the-sight-of-a-germ phase, I was always happy to pass her around to any willing baby holders. It gave me a little bit of a break from a squirming baby, and filled up other women's baby-tank, so it was an all around win-win. These days, though, I am more begrudging. I see her so much less that I generally don't want to put her down. Ever. And now she wants to be down more than ever; squirming, rolling, pre-crawling all over. I am becoming more of a baby hoarder. Her baby days are growing shorter and her days with me are already short.
DH is betting we have one week until MJ starts crawling, and I am hoping he's wrong. She looked like she was on the verge of rolling for two months before it started, so perhaps this is just a fakeout. I have been searching the internets for a way to stop time, and a Dr. Hassan Katsina from Nigeria has promised that for $10,000 he will do this for me.
