Ever since the warm weather came and Greg has been wearing shorts and short sleeves, strange women have been coming up and squeezing my baby. I think its happened four or five times. I'm always to befuddled to say anything at the time. It happens so fast. Usually at the checkout line, they start admiring my baby, then reach into his stroller and give his arm or leg a squeeze. One time the woman was speaking to me in a foreign language, so I don't know if she would have understood anyway.


Maybe they think he's a can of biscuit dough? Now, I squeeze Greg daily, because he is so squishy, but that doesn't mean other people can. They never ask permission, either, probably because "May I squeeze your baby?" sounds like a bad request.

At my doctor's appointment, one of the nurses stopped to admire him, then circled back and was going to squeeze. Brendan jumped in front of Greg and said "No! My baby, mine!" and scared her off. Thank you Brendan!

Oh, my, I wanna squeeze him, too!

Gnarly claims Leah, too. When R calls her "my baby," she yells, "No, Daddy, she's not Daddy's baby! She's Natalie's baby!"

Its so sweet to see them protective of their little sibs.

Okay, that picture is squishable, but only in theory. I wouldn't actually *do* it. Sheesh people. Good job Brendan the Bouncer.

Maybe this would scare people off?

Haha. Probably not, since I'd still be the one to change him!

Yeah, so close! If only it said "Squeeze the chub and I puke on you." Which reminds me of some advice I got about keeping people away from a timid dog, and like so much dog advice, it applies. When people approach, say something like, "Oh, he has a stomach bug, probably want to stay back."

Wow. I mean, he is possibly the most squeezable little chubbler I've ever seen, but jeez, people, keep your hands to yourselves.

OMG rolls...I love squishy rolls and can't wait to have them again in 10 weeks :-P ...but agreed...random squishing of kids in a store is just not something you do nowadays.

It's like belly rubbing when you're pregnant. The people that do it are stealth and I can barely react before they're all rubbing up on my STOMACH!
