Roan calls Zachary Baby Zach. Most of the time Roan didn't mind when I held him, but once he grabbed my hand and said, "Mommy, put Baby Zach away." When I asked Ro where I should put him, he impatiently pointed at the floor.
I didn't love the infant stage. They cry a lot, and frankly, it's hard to interact. But holding Baby Zach, I remembered how nice it is to hold somebody who really only wants to be held. You can cuddle all you want, they have nothing else on the agenda. We couldn't put Baby Zach down unless the vacuum cleaner or the blow dryer was on, and even then it was dicey. I tried to hold Roan like that and he stuck his finger up my nose.
On New Years Day we had Mo come over and take some family photos. My favorites are of my parents, holding their grandsons.
