To all the women that love the 'lil babies

 When you are out, and come upon a baby, I would assume that you make a fuss. When that happens, how do babies generally respond to you? Do they smile, stare, cry.....

Just curious...

The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it. Or the way it is, or ought to be. What's more important, is that we're all looking for it, and a way to see it.

Oh I coo, and they love me right back.

Am currently trying to formulate just how to make off with a co-worker's 12 month old girl.  :)  She's absolutely precious!

yep.. it is said that some pple have a 'hard' look.. and can cause a baby to have colic... most times pple come and touch the babies hair to prevent that from happening... if they don't then you have to deal with a crying baby and the 'cure' is running an egg around their body and cracking it in a glass... it's a strange belief but most hispanic pple swear by it.. We buy bracelets and usually the going home outfit is red, it is said that it prevents the 'evil eye' from getting on them..

crazy myths LOL

I usually smile at them, and most of the time I get smiles or coo's back.  If the mother seems ok with it, I'll talk to the babies and coo at them.

Oh me too, but I never touch. I know that bothers most people, so I am careful to keep a bit of a distance, and I pay attention to how the mom (or dad) is reacting.

 I did notice that some wouldnt look at her to much until after she got the bracelet, like close family and friends.....The Grandma thought it was a crime dd didnt have one....Of course her thinking I was a white nasty American may not have helped...
