well, you look great

I've started to notice a social habit. The first few friends and neighbors I talked to after having the babies all said I looked great. That made me feel good. But then I noticed everyone said it, and said it the exact same way and at the same point in the conversation. "Well, you look great." Sometimes with emphasis on the 'great,' other times on 'look.' I try to predict when its coming now. I've come to the conclusion that it is the socially acceptable thing to say to a new mom. Just an observation.
