The boys have *loved* holding their sister and she’s loved it, too. They all lined up the moment she woke up and called turns to see her and hold her.
Until a few months ago, when she suddenly decided only Mom could hold her, ever. (Which made me feel very special!)
But the boys kept begging for a turn to hold her, so I would try again. It usually lasted all of five seconds while she arched her back and cried for Mom to save her. They were so sad.
Then this morning, I thought, “Heyyy, she’s really interested in books now and will hold still to see one. I wonder…”
And it worked!!! She was perfectly content to be held and read to!
They were so excited, they all asked for turns and she obliged them all and had a wonderful time. It was beautiful!!
Great job, Shoo-Shee!! :):)
P.S. This binky is cracking me up. She stopped taking a binky very early (maybe a month or two old?). So I put the cute pink and purple binkies away in a drawer.
Then after she turned a year, she suddenly grabbed an old binky from the toy basket and popped it in her mouth as she played. She crawled around with it. And chewed on it when she was teething. It was so cute!
So I pulled out the pink and purple ones again and added them to the toy baskets. She loves them and I love seeing her get more use out of them. I’ve never had a child do this before!
