I thought this day would never come. And – hey look! – it still hasn’t.

4 Aug

Bad, bad baby.

Seabass’ 12-week birthday was Monday.  We’ve waited patiently for this day for, oh, well, about 12 weeks I guess.  And why?  Because everyone says that colicky babies stop being nuts by then.

On Sunday night, C was fussing fussing fussing with the intensity of an Olympian training for an event.  “You’re on the clock, buddy,” said Jake as we wheeled a screaming C around downtown, dodging peoples’ pitying and/or annoyed glances.  “By midnight, your days of fussing had better be over, or else…or else we’ll start charging you for it.

Midnight came and went.  Nothing’s changed.  He’s still nuts.

And oh man, is he gonna owe us big time.

    Sorry to be a negative Nancy, but I was always told 4-6 months before Colic subsides. For us, it was 6 months.

    He’ll get there! He will! You can do it, C!

    Aaaah. But he’s so cute when he smiles. There are no magic time lines, only ‘abouts’.

    He is so stinkin’ cute! Which is good because it seems that’s what keeps him under your roof. =)

    They only tell you its over in 12 weeks to give you hope and allow enough time for numbness to set in…it’s one of those aphorisms like “the second delivery is always easier than the first”. I’m sorry, this is the lesson where you learn you can’t trust anyone sets in…but in the end you DO get an awesome child. Really. Trust me.

    I told Travis when London moves out and goes to college, I plan on calling him every two hours for six months, around the clock. Just to give him a glimpse of what it was like.

    Think about it. It’s good revenge.
