This actually used to be my policy until I acquired various siblets by way of my sister and in-laws (I got a new one today! Hi, C!). My new policy is that I will pick the kid up if nobody else wants to (if he or she is laying in a bassinet for example). I have no desire to deprive other people of babies but will instead make faces at them from across the room.
We took zero pictures of me with the baby today. There will be no pictures taken of me with babies until after December 1st. Novembers from here on out will be very limited in the ‘pictures of Adam with family’ department because one day I will have a 50th birthday and on that day, pictures of me with a moustache will become highly visible if the 50th birthday parties I’ve been to are any indicator.
