I have always wondered how parents of colicky babies stay sane, and now it looks like we'll have an opportunity to find out. I have always equated colic with the end of the world for a parent, but the shooting this past week in Newtown, CT has reminded me what the end of the world for a parent really looks like. I have had to distance myself from the news to protect my tender heart, but I am grieving for these mothers and fathers. I would much rather have a screaming baby with an upset tummy than silence where there should be voices.
How so very heartbreaking. I can't even imagine.
In happy news, Orion is starting to smile. For the past week he has been making more eye contact and responding to our facial expressions. I didn't think he could get any more beautiful, but his smile really is the icing on the cake. We are so grateful for these two healthy children in our lives.
what a sweet little boy you have "this too shall past" sorry he cries a lot but give that baby kiss from me.
We survived kinley, that being said. If I had to do over I would have given her the acid reflux medication....
It sure isn't easy! Why does the second baby have to do that? As if having two isn't hard enough already! But you are going to make it through it and will love Orion even more when he is just all smiles and the fussy phase is over. Congrats again on his safe arrival and We love your Christmas card! Thanks!
