Wanting To Snuggle



One day a couple weeks ago I had Wyatt in his bouncer, and he started crying.

Now, he had been a little fussy because of some air problems that week as well. I knew he must have air problems, because when I would pick him up he'd still be unhappy, and he'd arch his back and scrunch his face like he was in pain. I'd usually have to spend some times rubbing his back, bending his knees, and trying to make him more comfortable before he would settle down.

I figured the notorious air bubbles had returned again when he started to cry, so I unbuckled him and picked him up, expecting to have to do a little work to make him happy again.

Not so. As soon as I picked him up he stopped crying, curled into a little ball, and nuzzled his face against me.

In my head I was thinking that perhaps this is what they talk about when they say that babies can learn to manipulate their parents and make them do what they want them to do. I wondered if maybe I shouldn't fall for it.

But there he was with his little face snuggled against me, almost instantly sleeping contentedly, and I just couldn't bear to put him down.

Who am I kidding? I can't resist my snuggly baby.

You got me, Baby Boy. You got me.

All that talk about babies manipulating parents is nonsense. Babies want (and need) to be close to their mommies, pure and simple. And it's a wonderful feeling to know that our babies are happy in our arms. :)

To answer your question on my blog... I think it would be a sweet gesture. Recognizing that she had a loss but also that she is a mom. If she is anything like me she will appreciate it a lot.

Aw, I'd say you should enjoy that snuggling all you can! :)
