Is This a Tick or Not?
Hello, I hope this is the right place to submit this query. My wife and I found this insect in our home. I am confident it is not a tick, but she would like professional opinion (we have a 3 week old baby!). Thank you for your time and help!

This is definitely not a tick. See the following for images of wood tick:
It is an adult weevil, a type of beetle. There are a few different species with a very similar appearance that often come into homes during the summer. See https://pestid.msu.edu/insects-and-arthropods/strawberry-root-weevil/ for information about the most common one of these.
