With family recently, Gray was so happy and smiley (as usual!) and everyone was commenting on how happy he is, how early he is smiling (earlier than my other boys did) and how he is just the best baby! Then my grandmother gets this scolding look on her face and says "it's because you hold him too much!" .... wha? So would it be better if I didn't hold him often and he was a sad, unhappy baby? I don't really understand! He is a wonderful baby and I love holding him and cherishing his baby-ness... it doesn't last long- believe me I know this!
