I am always being told that my son is so happy, content, and friendly. It is the opinion of some that the reason for this must be because I am such a good parent. In other people's opinion it is because of genetics. Some people even think it is because of how pregnancy went. Some suggest that if you have a crabby baby it is because you left your baby to cry often and/or you have a lot of stress in the home.
For me, I have never left my son to cry, I had a horrible pregnancy, I am always cracking jokes and acting silly. So I don't really know why my son is so happy while other babies are so crabby.
So what do you think? People with happier babies are better parents, it is in the genes, it is the way you felt when you were pregnant, or is it simply that is just how that particular baby's personality is?
