A first...

In Wal-Mart today, I passed by a lady who noticed Eli and said to me "Wow! What a big baby!". Of course, she didn't ask me how old he was, but it was nice to hear something other than "Wow... He's so tiny. I have a 3-month old niece/grandchild/etc. that's soooo much bigger than him."

Can you tell I have a complex about this?

That IS nice to hear and it is beyond me why people feel the need to tell you how big so-and-so's child is compared to yours. Who wants to hear their child is small?
Anyone, anyone? Didn't think so.

I had the same complex about Sam for a little while. I THINK I'm just about over it.

Sawyer's 3 and I'm not over it. Amazing as it is that you know someone who's 18 month old is the same size as my 3 year old....I don't want to hear it.

I have had the same complex with Alyssa.

One day at the store when she was just over a year old, I had put her in the front of the grocery cart. Sure enough a couple stopped to "Admire her." Then they asked how old she was. I told them and their comment back to me was "Oh, well she is old enough to sit up in the front like that, I thought she was only a six month old." There were so many things I wanted to tell those people but I just said "Yes, she is" and then pushed Alyssa away from them.

What happened to if you can't say something nice than don't say anything at all, right?

Eli is the perfect size.
