ugh. i think i read too much AP stuff about nine months in, nine months out, wear or hold baby all the time, and such, so now whenever i'm NOT holding maya i feel like i should be and then i feel super guilty.
maya doesn't even LIKE being held all the time. recently she's discovered how much she likes looking at stuff, and enjoys laying flat on her back or in her bouncy seat and thrashing her arms and legs about. her eyes get all big and she coos and gets really pumped. like right now - i just had a bowl of really hot soup, and i won't wear/hold her while eating hot stuff 'cause i'm a spiller, so i put her in the bouncy. she is SO excited and having the time of her life in there, staring at the world around her and moving her body and being really happy. but i still feel like omg i'm done w/my soup so i should hold her. my mom says i SHOULD put her down here and there, just because she loves looking around and moving her body. she gets fussy when she's really active and being held or worn, and i know if i pick her up now she'll probably be mad at me spoiling her fun, but i'm still like OMG AM NOT HOLDING BABY I R BAD.
i know i should just not feel guilty about stuff like this, and i DO see that she's having fun, and i AM right next to her so i can just scoop her up when she's done being in there or when i need more maya cuddles. but does anyone else feel bad about putting baby down, even if baby feels great about it?
