On Sunday M.D.'s Nana came to visit. God sent us a blessing in the form of a woman who raised 3 colicky babies. There is nothing more comforting than having someone visit who is, A) Your mother..so you don't have to dress up, shower, clean your house before she comes...and more importantly...
B) A woman who has experience with colic. She was not dismayed in the least when M.D. started his screaming episode(s)..yes...multiple..and knew all of the tricks of the trade to calm him down (even if just temporarily).
Speaking of screaming...that's M.D.'s newest trick. It's one of my favorites...or not. He doesn't necessarily cry as much anymore. I mean...he still cries...screams...at times. However, he's advanced in his abilities and has figured out in that giant noggin of his that if he screams, not cries, but screams at the top of his lungs he can get attention. And he utilizes this new tool to the best of his abilities. I would definitely say, at this point, that he is overutilizing his new-found ability. Steven and I just laugh because he will scream so loud that the dogs cock their heads and then immediately will stop...and look at you...like, Did you hear that? Yes, Mason. We heard you. Thank you for showing off your lung power. You sound like a kid on the rollercoaster at Disney World...yet you are here, sitting on our laps, in our house, in MN. What Talent!!
The irony is great.
More tomorrow :)
