I don't know if "like" is the word. I find them fun to watch for a bit, and they are a necessary stage in raising kids, but with my own kids, the older they got, the better things became. I liked the 3-6 years old stage better than the baby stage, because they become old enough to talk and not totally as dependent, and more remarkably you can see them learning something new each day. That's pretty amazing to see. And of course, then they become even older and eventually you can seen advanced reasoning and perception take hold and you start to catch more and more sight of the people they are becoming.
Kind of a long answer, but the deal is that the "baby" is the stage I preferred the least. It's all about total care, intense schedules (a three-hour sleep/play/eat cycle), etc.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
yus. although i've only rented rather than owned, and i'm sure they're easier to like when you're not stuck with the heavy responsibility of pure dependence (plus then you're sleep deprived, and everything is harder then).

I've never been comfortable around babies for some reason. Even as a little girl I didn't like baby dolls, and I've always avoided holding one. That probably sounds terrible, but it's true.

the only way i can enjoy or even tolerate other people's kids is through the enjoyment of seen my boy when his with them... in general i am not a fan of other people's kids, not to mention other people's babies.
