Ok lets see...They are BABIES!!!

Ya...that is what they are...

I am going to try real hard here not to sound angry...ya...but more pedantic because I know that most of my friends do not have a baby as yet...and me...when I was single or double (before becoming triple) would have done similar things...So here is a leaf out of my experience...

1) When you go out to a party where there are loads of new people would you go around socializing with every stranger the very minute you walk in? No right?

The same applies for a baby...they do not like to be carried around by strangers...from far they will try and smile...but if you rush to one immediately and try to carry him/her...the baby will cry...just like you would if anyone tried to carry you the very minute they meet you...

2) Do you have mood swings? Are you a bit cranky or draggy right after you wake up?

Well again, the same for babies too...they take at least 10 minutes after they wake up to socialize...only mommy can keep them cool then...so wait and give the baby some time before you try to jump in and get some attention for yourself...

3) Because they are babies...ya...if they did everything like we did...then they will not be babies now, will they? so ya...they are babies and will behave like babies...

There is one thing if you come and meet the baby often and you are already friends with the baby...then the baby's face will register the recognition no matter when, where or how you meet them...but if you meet them once in two months, you cannot expect the baby to fall in love with you the first minute you see them...also just because your brother's baby or your uncle's daughter is friendly with you does not ensure that others baby will also feel the same towards you...chances are you meet your uncle's kid more often than you meet your friend's kid...so wait, give them time...and trust me...the baby will come to you...just like us, adults, we take our time to blend into a new group but after sometime we do make some conversation and attempts at friendship...

Baby's are not teddy bears and they also hate being passed around...give them some space and they will come to you to make friends with you...ya...this is exactly the same reason why I am thinking so hard about a birthday party for her...she is going to turn one in less than a month...

I want that day to be special for her...not a scary one where one stranger after another picks her up...then she will cry...then the stranger will brand her CRANKY...and I will feel like throwing some cake on that person...why all the trouble...so I think I am going to throw a party where only BABBI's friends will be invited...not our (mine and G's) friends but hers...people whom she recognizes easily and will move around freely instead of being scared of them...I think that is what I want to do...

Anyways...loads of planning to do...gotta go...
