The way we love

new!, originally uploaded by Allstarme.

From an article on attachment parenting by Dr. Sears:

“A new mother usually strokes her baby’s entire body with a gentle caress of her fingertips; the father, however, often places an entire hand on his baby’s head, as if symbolizing his commitment to protect the life he has fathered.”

Just thought I would share.

  1. He has more of Ash’s features, but definitely has my nose. We’ve decided that since he took more physical features from Ash, he’ll probably end up having my exact demeanor. Oh no!

  2. Hmmmm, whenever I encounter a baby, I like to put my hand on his/her head, mainly to compare head size to that of a basketball. I’m weird that way.
