*steps onto high horse*

Scenario: You are walking through the mall or the grocery store and you come across another baby in a carrier or stroller. You take a quick glimpse. Do you compare your child to theirs? Of course you do. This is only natural. Everyone wants some assurance that they have best looking child that they can have. Now what do you do when you realize your child is not as cute as the next one?
Luckily for us, we have not encountered this problem just yet. You will commonly find me strutting my stuff, holding Rylan proud, as my son is handsome. I want everyone to know that my son (for the most part) is a great baby. He so far has a great personality, he looks handsome and overall is just an ideal baby to have (especially as a first child). Do the parents around me look at my son and compare? Sure they do. But the unspoken question is, do they think my child is better looking, or better acting than theirs? Are women jealous that I am willing and confident enough to hold my child and not consider my child a black plague like many men seem too?
It was only 7 months ago that I was in the waiting room with my wife, waiting for her checkup, when I reported being starred at heavily by women. I still have not been able to get a solid answer as to whether some women get jealous when they see a man holding a child when their husband/bf will do no such thing.
As for now, I will continue to hold Rylan and walk proud as my child is handsome and I know that my wife and I split the genes perfectly.
