Anyone want to hold a baby?

My high maintenance baby just got a bit higher, thanks to everyone in NY who participated in ensuring that Anthony was always held. Now were home and I have a messy house that needs to be put back in order, but a baby who refused to be put down. He falls asleep, I put him down and he wakes back up and cries. As soon as I pick him up he immediately falls back asleep.

I guess my house will just have to wait, because Anthony is clearly in charge around here. That's really okay with me, I don't feel like cleaning anyway, I'd rather just lounge around and enjoy the last day of 2007.
Okay, I have to confess, Francie came over today and she helped me hold Anthony so I could have a little time to do something other than hold him. Unfortunately I chose not to use my time cleaning house. Hopefully Todd doesn't read this post, but then again, he is at a basketball game, so he really really can't say anything. What would have been really great, is if Francie had offered to clean the house, while I held the baby.

I figured what you are going through with Anthony would happen as he was constantly held while you were in NY. Now you have to get him back to normal. I went through the same thing when my daughter was around a month and a half when we came back East to visit.

I would be THRILLED to hold Anthony for you. But, I'm in Wisconsin. I think you should just hold him and forget about the housework. He won't be that teeny for long.

I would love to come hold him! And I would bring your Christmas letter, pics from last summer, and baby gift that were returned to us.

I sent it to 5*** W******* Dr. The PO sticker says your new address is 4*** R**** Rd. Is that correct? Let me know and I'll get it back in the mail pronto.

(Please delete if you think I gave too much info there!)

I think you should take the excuse while you still can - there will be more days to clean the house!

I would love to hold Anthony! Although AZ is kind of far... Believe me the housework will wait and as belle said "he won't be that teeny for long". Relish it, soak it in...hold him!
