I think Ethan might be teething… he’s been more clingy than usual as of late. I can hold him with my arms, but I can’t do it while standing for very long or I start to lose my grip. I never hold onto him long enough for my lack of grip to become treacherous. I will sit down before that.
It makes me sad that I can’t just walk around with him on my hip when that’s what will comfort him. I love to hug him because I can actually reach my arms all the way around him… kids are the only ones I feel like I can give real hugs to.
For his sake and mine, I wish holding and hugging were easier for me.
