Lately he might quietly fuss for a whole hour and I’ll put him in the baby bjorn and walk around. That won’t work. So I’ll take him out and put him in the bouncy chair. That won’t work. So then I’ll try rocking him. That won’t work. I’ll try nursing. Not interested. Finally yesterday, I walked outside with him and he was quiet. I think he was stunned into quietness. But it was too darn cold out there so we didn’t stay long.
Then moments later he can turn around and be so happy and social. He coos and aahs and smiles at you. It just melts you.
Even saying all of this…I still think he is one of the easiest babies to care for. He generally sleeps well, he travels in a car well, he shops well, he sleeps through my bible study class, he sits quietly in his car seat through MOPS. He is just easy. He doesn’t even freak out when his brother yells in his face when he’s sleeping. He just looks stunned and goes back to sleep. He’s a go with the flow kinda guy. You gotta love that!
