There Seems To Be A Problem

I don't want to put my baby down.

I just want to hold her and rock her all day long.

And you'd think, me, the babywearer would have this covered... well, I'd rather do nothing else but give her constant snuggles and kisses.

So I pretty much do.

And if I do lay her down, I just want to take pictures of her sweetness.




This means I am a little behind on some things. But for good reason, of course.

I'll have an awesome Method giveaway for you all soon.


And I've finally posted over here about what I'm doing right. Mmm hmm. I'm a good Mom and I know it.

  1. I definitely get your drift! I have such a hard time putting him down, awake or asleep. I can't get enough of that little dude. Could be that I have four very large reminders that these days fly away so quickly.

  3. It's hard to put them down when they are so stinkin' cute and tiny! It does go too fast! I read your other post - glad to see you looking at the positive :)

  4. You're an awesome Mom! Only other Mommies can understand how you feel. The pure feeling of joy with our babies is so addicting.

  5. I knew our youngest was our last so I held her, kissed her and rocked her all I could. No regrets. They grow up way too fast. Keep holding that precious Ivy all you can!

  6. Oh how I remember that feeling when we first brought Lilla home. I'm sure it's why she is the cuddlebug she is today. Even as I type she is leaning against me watching Little Einsteins. When I put her on the pillow she said, "Mommy, I want to sit on you. I miss you." Ah, it does this mommy's heart good!

  8. I say hold her! She'll only be that little once...the laundry and dishes can wait while you kiss those sweet, adorable, chubby cheeks! :D

  9. I love that newborn stage - where they do everything with you and are always around! She is too lovely!

  10. I remember when my son was little, the pedi felt his head and said, "Wow, absolutely round. He gets held a lot, doesn't he?" I had a moment of new mom panic and said, Is that wrong? And he said, Nope. This is just what we want to see, but so rarely do.
    So go us for holding those babies as much as possible.:)

  11. I can't wait to have a little one to not put down. And I think it is a perfectly good excuse as to why my house will be dirty!

  12. I'm having the opposite problem... Jasper is the one who doesn't want me to put him down, ever! I wish he was as tiny and sweet and gentle as Ivy still, then I would probably blow everything off to do his bidding. Unfortunately, he's a 24 lb bundle of flailing limbs and chomping teeth, so he's not quite as enticing to me these days. I keep telling him he needs to learn to walk!

  13. I read your post twice, and I still don't see the problem...

    ;)

    I haven't even HAD my baby yet, and I already want to hold him all the time.

  14. You are such a sweet mom. Keep it up :) It is good for Ivy and good for you.

    I'm looking forward to the Method giveaway- I love their products.

  15. they only let you hold onto them like that for so long...i say indulge yourself and your sweet girl!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh my gosh, those little rolls in her arms.I feel like I could almost drink in her sweet baby smell. Ahhhhh! Can I hold your baby sometime? :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. oh what a precious little girl. You just breathe her in -- it's ok. Just grow up before you know it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. She must be a marvelously cuddly baby. I'm hoping for one of those someday.

    Don't let guilt over housework ruin those beautiful moments.

  19. Those cheeks are angelic!

  20. Oh man, your pictures on here lately have been divine! I would have a hard time not kissing her too. She's such a lovey, even when not happy!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Awwww. I certainly don't blame you!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's how I was with Nicky. He was attached me to all of the time. Either to my boob or my arm LOL

  23. Totally "get" what you are describing! My "babies" are now 7, and sometimes when they climb in our bed in the mornings I just want to squeeze the puddin' out of 'em and never let go.

    Think it will be the same when they're 40...although I'm betting they won't want to let me do it! (For now, I say we enjoy it!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. You're doing a gazillion things right.
    Your precious girl makes me want another baby. My husband wants to have a word with you about that...

    ReplyDelete
  25. It's okay that you love her so much you just want to cuddle with her and take her picture. My joungest is now two and I did the same thing when he was an enfant. Something about knowing that they are your last baby does this to us.

    ReplyDelete
  26. this sounds so very familiar. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. So sweet! Does she get cuter every picture or is it just me!

    ReplyDelete
  28. SOO not a problem! I'm amazed you can pry yourself away from her long enough to tell us you can't pry yourself away from her.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'd have a hard time putting Ivy down too! You already know they start growing up so fast, hold her as long as you can!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Of course! Who could possibly put down that sweet bundle of joy?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh my goodness, I would have to stop and pick her up and love on her constantly. That is a snuggly picture.

    ReplyDelete
  32. She is growing way too fast. I can't believe she's almost 1 month old. I don't blame you for wanting to hold and cuddle her all day long.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love the pics of your precious girl. She is adorable.

    I can relate to this post! I love to kiss and snuggle my baby girl... when I should be doing other things. But, she will only be a baby once, so my to-do list can wait (at least it sounds like a good justification for being behind).

  34. I still don't want to put down Gabi, and when I hold her, I just can't stop kissing her! Oh, baby love is just the best!!!

    Heidi

    Oh, and these pictures are all fabulous!!! Love them all...

  35. She is just so beautiful, I would put her down either!

    ReplyDelete
  36. i don't see the problem ;). she's so precious...i wouldn't want to put her down either. i don't like to stop snuggling with my girls now. and i'm sure i'll be feeling the same way when my 3rd baby girl comes!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I remember that feeling so well! My midwife kept telling me to get some sleep, but how could I possibly sleep when there was something so beautiful to watch?!
    It's quite belated, but congratulations on this wonderful new addition to your family! You ALL look positively glowing with happiness!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I totally understand where you are coming from. Riley is almost 5 and I STILL love to carry him and snuggle with him. I do get yelled at now because now that I am pregnant they tell me I should stop. :(

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh well, I can totally understand why you wouldn't want to put her down. She's SOOOO sweet!!
    And she looks so big already, my goodness! : )

    ReplyDelete
  40. Look at those cheeks! Oh, who wouldn't want to kiss and take pictures all day?!

    Has anyone said anything about having problems with your feed for bloglines? I realized recently that it was odd I hadn't seen any new posts pop up for you. SO now I'm here to check and there are several that didn't show. Any idea why?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love that photo - she is an angel! :) So sweet...

    ReplyDelete
  42. My little guy is SO snuggly... could be 'cuz he spends so much of his life in the sling! :) I'm with ya' on this one. Nothing like a baby to shift all other priorities down a couple notches.

    ReplyDelete
  43. She is so beautiful! I don't blame you for not putting her down. My girls are 4 and 5 and I don't like putting them down still hehe... literally the 4 year old. I pretty much still carry her everywhere :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I totally understand! THis is exactly how I felt with my little Isaac. All I did was hold him for months....needless to say not much else got done, but that was just fine because he has grown so quickly and I will never get those moments back. I sure hope that I can do the same with my second baby due in January! I know it will be harder since she isn't the first child. But you have other kids and are still able to enjoy your baby, so I am encouraged!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I don't blame you I would keep her close to my heart too!

    Rebekah is 17 1/2 months and I still try to clean only while she is napping cause I love spending time with her! The mess will be still there later but she might not!
