That describes my first three months with my bundle too. Although it is not always possible to see at the time, you're comments are so true and heartwarming and make me understand reason behind his need/demand.

That was beautifully written and I echo the sentiment completely! It almost makes me want another (only almost)!

LOVED this post, and as the other comments have said, I have a "fussy" STILL wanting to be held all the time girl. I have to admit, only as of late have I recognized the benefits and miss that closeness even of babyhood. I did enjoy it, but that whole thing threw me for a loop - I was not prepared for the level of NEED that my monkey had for me. Now, I look back fondly. Yes, we too have sleep issues. Seems to be a trend, I bet its all part and parcel of having such a sensitive, knows what they want type child. Even now, I am just enjoying the closeness we share (and only minimally wanting to scream!). I always say that I am afraid for #2 because of how much I went through the wringer for #1, but I probably wouldn't know what to do with an "easy" baby! I am prepared now as someone else had said. Anyways, I love that you put such a positive light on this issue, because although it was a very frustrating, heart-wrenching time, it was also a beautiful, emotional time. Your post was very eloquent and emotional. Touched me because it WAS me too! Thanks!

I loved the feeling of our Pumpkin sleeping on my chest, too. Which may or may not be partially responsible for our ongoing sleep issues. I prefer to think that the sleep issues were innate, and that is WHY I let her sleep on my chest so much!

I also loved watching her figure new things out. I still love that, actually.

I had a similar, very clear about what he wanted and wanted to be held always baby.

I did lots of reading too, sometimes I loved it, sometimes it was a struggle, and sometimes I wanted to scream! I just told myself, when he is 12 he wont want anything to do with you :)
Even now he wants to sleep on me, and I go with it, because at some point he wont be able to any more and that will be a very big hole.

Also, a sensitive, emotional and very sure about what they want trait is good. You need to have a very clear sense of self, and of your desires to succeed in this world and they have a leg up on this.

But a couple of days of a laid back baby wouldn't be bad.... maybe one that slept peacefully no matter what was going on around them?

What a beautiful post. You don't realize just how special and sweet those early months are until they've morphed into squirmy bundles of toddlerhood.

Amen, caramama! Le Petit, too, was a must-be-held-all-the-time "fussy" baby. And I feel the same way about it now, fourteen months later, as you do about the Pumpkin. I am so glad he is who he is! Being so needed at the beginning was a gift. I not only learned how to snuggle and be close and present as a mom, but I also learned to let go of my anxiety and trust my instincts. Both were huge lessons for me that I'm looking forward to using for an eventual baby number two.

I also got back into good physical shape very quickly after the birth because the one of the only ways I could get le Petit to nap was to put him in the Bjorn or the Moby and walk and walk and walk...

I wonder what another child will teach me, because I'm certain now that they all have something new to show you from birth. I almost hope I'll have another "fussy" baby because I feel I'm well-prepared for that, and know how to make it bring out the best in both of us.

(But I wouldn't mind a better sleeper. One of those mythical sleeps-through-the-night-at-three-months models would be nice. *grin*)

Awww, that was heartwarming about it all being worth it. And the love you feel for her is so deep and comes through so much. :)
