Adam takes a break from screaming to rest his vocal cords with a little power nap…

Cute?  Sure, but he’s waking up in 5…4…3…2…

Crying Baby

Tags: , , ,

Well, it finally happened! The boys slept through the night. Both went to bed about 7 p.m. (not long after their regularly scheduled 3 to 6 colic fit). Adam awoke at 11:30 p.m., sucked down a bottle, and went right back to sleep. He didn’t get up again until 4:00 a.m. Alex didn’t wake up at all until 4:30 a.m.! I pretty much got my usual 5 hours (midnight to 5 a.m.), but Cindy was able to get some real rest! Most deserved after the past couple of fussy, fussy days.

Colic, or extreme crying in infants, is excruciatingly frustrating. I remember these episodes with my kids (from a previous marriage) almost two decades ago and it’s a wonder they made it to their first birthdays. Even after all these years of medical progress and scientific discovery, colic remains mystery. It will go like gangbusters for the first months of the babies existence and then miraculously disappear at about four months. In the meantime, parents are losing their minds wondering how they could ever think having kids was a good idea.

Still, in between the piercingly loud bouts of crying, the baby will make a funny face or smile the sweetest smile (so what if it’s gas), and it all seems worthwhile.
