This? This is my day. Over and over and over again. If she’s not up, she wants up. She cries when she’s put down. She follows me to the bathroom. She even does this when I’m on the toilet. I kid you not. Tears and snot running down her face. Some days are better than others. At night she sometimes agrees to sit with daddy, but for the most part, she wants mommy. She’s not afraid of other people, she just wants held. It’s exhausting.
There is one cute thing about it. Recently she’s started grabbing my face when she’s nursing, and turning it back toward her (away from the tv, the big kid, or whatever), and then grinning hugely. She really wants my attention. She’s only going to be little once. Her big sister did get a lot of my attention, basically all of it for 3 years. I still have to give her a fair amount, so I guess baby wants more.
