I'm very careful not to cross any boundaries with holding babies who are not my grandkids. I rarely let anybody but family and those I think of as family hold my own babies. The ONLY babies I will hold without asking would be my grandbabies.
I hate holding the "baby" when ever I go friends or family member's house who have a new baby they always hand me the baby. They squirm to much and I can't reach my wine when they're in my lap. I think they're cute .... But from a distance. People shouldn't just assume cos I'm female I wanna hold the freakin' baby. I don't.
