Yesterday at Easter dinner at my mother-in-laws one of my husbands uncles raved about how beautiful and sweet my dd was. He is always like this. You would think I would just agree with him and let it go but I cannot. She is the most beautiful and sweet baby. But he raves about her for an hour and a half. That is all he would talk about. That's all he talks about when he runs into someone at the grocery store, restaurant, etc... She 8 months old. He's an alcoholic and not a very nice person in general. He has other great nieces but he only talks about my dd like this. He is not generally interested in children. Does anyone else think this is kind of creepy? My husband and I are now in an argument about the situation. Also, yesterday the uncle was drunk and still my husband kept letting him hold her. Is it not my husbands responsibility to tell him no? If it were my family it would be mine.

see my husbands grandfather is like that, he has no interest in any of his grand babies except our daughter and he is right in love with her. Everything she does he just thinks is amazing, and he goes on and on about her to anyone who will listen. There is rumor going around the family that he may think shes his late wife reincarnated. I don't mind him fussing over her so much except when my SIL is around with her kids because I know it hurts her that hes not like that with her kids. Hes a harmless old man and the family patriarch so I don't mind. But if he were an alcoholic I would be a little leary of him. If your husband won't deal with the situation I think its your right as the child's mother to step in. I agree that your husband should speak up but if you won't you should
