    Today it was about 90 degrees out. So for a few minutes today I took a baby out with me to just enjoy the beautiful heat. My DH would put the baby about 3 feet away from me and it would hurry back to me. It never failed. We were laughing that that baby know I was Momma. So then I went and got another baby and we tested it again! Sure enough baby number two did the same thing! So now my Dh offical calls me Mother Hen! LOL

    Is it possible they already know I am Momma after only 3 days?
