Now, everything is different. Like, not a little bit different. 100% opposite different. M.D. has become THE HAPPIEST baby I have ever met. In fact now, when he cries, we say, "Uh oh...what's wrong?!" because we know it MEANS something when he cries. He does it SO RARELY that this "new" baby only cries when something is actually wrong..which, thankfully, is rarely.
He doesn't have a "fussy time". He used to scream all evening. Mornings & afternoons it was sporadic. Evening...we just PRAYED for him to fall asleep to stop the screaming. Now, he plays & talks & we read books. Then, when he starts to act sleepy, I make him a bottle and we sit on the couch and he eats. I get to watch T.V. We relax. He gets tired, starts to fall asleep. I give him his "binkie" (pacifier) and lay him in bed. He rolls to his side & falls asleep. It's magical. It doesn't make sense.
How did we go from this:
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy & excited about this "new" baby that M.D. has become. That is why I'm fearful. I don't want to go back!!!! :
That being said, I won't have time to post tomorrow.
Steven & I are VERY excited for this weekend. Nana Joanne called and asked if we would like her to come up this weekend so we can have a date night. (She must have read my intervention blog post) :). So she is going to come up on Saturday so Steven & I can go out to dinner. We are psyched. We can't even figure out where to go because we have so many restaurants in our head that we haven't been to since M.D. was born. It will be awesome :) *Thanks Nana*
