Babies are Easier than Toddlers

Babies are easier than toddlers.  Really…here is what I have so far:

1.  You don’t throw out your back, carrying around a baby.

2.  [Setting:  Post feeding, patting baby’s back] You can let your husband say ridiculous things to the baby, like “Don’t be selfish.  Give me your burp.”

3.  You can say things to a baby like “You poor bastard”, and not worry about them repeating what you say.

It’s a pretty short list.  In all truthfulness, I haven’t convinced myself yet.

In other news, Ben’s due date is tomorrow.  The little man, born 8 weeks early at just over 3 1/2 lbs will weigh in at 9 1/2 lbs.  Whoo hoo!

He always looks unhappy and mad.

Paradoxically, he is a very tiny, super-chubby baby.

He’s relatively easy.

Maybe I can come up with supporting reasons 4 through 10, during one of our nightly feedings.
