I was very excited when Lulu learned how to crawl. However, every time I would sit her on the floor, she would cry to be picked up. Not a little whine, but a full-out cry. I had thought that this was unique to Lulu (being that we are still seemingly attached at the hip). Baby Bro does the same thing, for no good reason. I could hold him for 3 hours and if I put him down then he will cry, not to be fed, not to be played with, just to be held.
I find this very frustrating. Similarly, it is extremely difficult to get anything done around the house because he wants to be held all of the time. I love my little prince and I spend enough time at work, that I feel like I can meet his little request.
Recently, we have been very busy at home. Admittedly, Dear Husband has taken over much of the housework, since the little prince was born. However, I feel like I need to be doing more of my share and it is so hard to do, again, while holding an infant.
I had been feeling like the Native Americans had the ultimate solution by carrying their babies in cradleboards. The cradleboard provided a safe place for baby while allowing mom to travel and work. Not having a cradleboard at home, this will have to do. Here I am doing the dishes and Bro is peeking over my shoulder watching my every move.
Are all babies like this or just mine? Help!
