Madeline has little patience for you if you get her request wrong. Most often she’s requesting to be held, at least right now. I think I remember this phase with Wes. Where I worried he’d be ruined if I continued to hold him, but at the same time there really is something lovely about a baby requesting to be held by you. I probably have more tolerance for holding her since I have a better understanding of how short the time frame is for this request. She’s very determined, Miss Madeline, in this and most things. I wonder how this will play out in the immediate future. No, I worry how that will play out in the immediate future. But I also am curious how her determination will serve her in the long run.
