Oh Boy!

I think that I have figured out where that expression (oh Boy) came from!! My little boy is a handful to say the least. He is a fussy baby...THAT I can handle. Last night...was MORE than I can handle. Talon cried-no he screamed- from 6 pm to 1 am. NO JOKE! John and I would take turns trying to sooth, shush, rock, bounce, feed, change, burp, swaddle and plead. When John couldn't take anymore, then it was my turn. When I couldn't take anymore, then it was his turn. Sure enough...he is exhausted today and just wants to sleep...BUT there are stipulations to his desire to sleep. He doesn't want to sleep just anywhere. He wants to sleep ON ME! So this is my life. I am so glad that I have a little baby to snuggle, infact all of my children have grown a strong desire to be snuggled. It's sweet, really!
I must admit that I do have moments when I would prefer to blow dry my hair without a baby attached to me, but what can you do? I know that he won't ALWAYS be fussy. He'll grow out of it. In a few years I will be missing it all, wishing that I could get this time back. I need to remind myself of that right now because I am exhausted and I have a long list of things that need to be done.

You've had it rough the last few weeks! Hope things look up. And good luck to John on his interviews. That's so exciting!

It sounds like you may have a nasty case of colic on your hands! Sorry it is rough, but it looks like you are keeping it in perspective, this too shall pass (the bad AND the good) and don't worry, it isn't just a boy thing. You will see, boys are GREAT!

He is just too cute Katrina! He has beautiful skin! Do you have a good wrap or sling?

Has anyone ever suggested taking your baby to the chiropractor? It may seem strange, but we've taken Ria and Kat (as newborns) and with Kat, specifically, it was miraculous! She as a nonstop crier from the start, but after the adjustment she was peaceful, placid, and just wonderful!

Check out the Wynkoops (down at the Beach), if you still live in that neck of the woods. They are awesome and have a REALLY awesome family plan... the whole family can get adjusted as much as you want for a flat fee for the month... it's REALLY inexpensive and they are AWESOME! I wish I could find such a totally awesome situation here!!! Anyway... good luck in dealing with Talon, if he has any recurrences.

Also, if you don't wear (wrap or sling) Talong yet, I HIGHLY recommend the MOBY. www.mobywrap.com I would swear by it if I did such things. ;)
