Is it teething time? Or is he just allergic to pumpkins?

15 Oct
Crying Baby, Sad, Pumpkins

Fuss monkey, that chunky monkey. Fuss monkey funky, that chunky monkey.

Most people really enjoy fall.  It’s cozy, the air smells fresh and spicy, and there are trees heavy with apples, the most perfect fruit on the face of the globe.

So why oh why doth the wee Seabass cry? 

Seriously, he’s been überfussy for the past ten days and I can’t figure it out.  We tried to take him to the pumpkin patch for distraction/diversion and the little dude just couldn’t dig it.  This photo was taken while a bunch of Japanese tourists waited patiently to stage their own photo shoot in front of the ginormous pumpkins.  Like I say, they were very polite, but their mouth-gaping stares gave me the impression that babies in Japan don’t cry quite like the Wild American Seabass does.

I don’t think teething is to blame.  If it is, those suckers are not showing themselves anytime soon; Seabass’ gums are as pink (i.e. not white) as ever.  But what do I know?  I’m kinda praying that he wakes up from his nap with two big chompers staring back at me, just so I can finally understand.

In the meantime, how cute am I in this picture?  See that ADORABLE necklace I’m wearing?  I’ll be giving one away next week on the blog.  Stay tuned.

    You never know. London fretted for four months before i saw a single glimpse of nubs. Sorry, I am always the bringer of bad news;). Maybe he just doesn’t like orange.

    I LOVE the necklace, so I’ll be staying tuned for the give away next week…as if I’m not already tuned to your blog. Anyway, funny pic even though I’m sure it wasn’t funny hauling around a fussy Seabass.

    Your mama has got skills. It is beautiful.
    Also, unexplained fussiness is frustrating. Lo siento.

    Maybe he heard you and Jake talking about other babies and he decided he wanted to make sure Dad was convinced one was enough….
