Paybacks...

Our little guy has been relatively easy so far. In fact, yesterday we woke up early and hit some "Mom-to-mom" sales- which ended up being like awesome baby loot yard sales, and then David and I went out to eat with him and he slept pretty much the whole day. We would run into vendors or other shoppers and he would wow them with his peaceful sleeping and overall adorableness. Even our waitress was wowed by how he slept through the noise at the restaurant. However, when the clock struck twelve, Elliott decided to become high maintenance.

He has been a total grouch all day today, and has left me so worn out that David sent me to our room to have a nap while he took over baby duty. Basically he has completely forgotten how eating works, and whether he is nursing or taking a bottle he gets frantic about three minutes into eating and either trashes his hands around and loses his food source, or just gets really ticked for seemingly no reason and stops eating to exercise his vocal cords. I'm not really sure what the problem is, but I'm hoping that his inner diva goes away after 24 hours.

Have you tried Gripe water yet? it is for stomach upsets including gas. Sometimes that works when Bradley is crying like that and sometimes we just dip his pacifier in it and he seems to like it a lot. I found that those times that he is cranky for no apparent reason involve him being gassy. Good luck!
