Return of the Happy Baby!

You may remember me posting earlier about what a happy, awesome baby Madelyn has been. Well, while she is still awesome, in the last few weeks someone took happy Madelyn and sent back grumpy, fussy Madelyn. Needless to say, it's been a rough couple of weeks (hence the lack of posts). Well, we seem to have found the answer to our prayers and our happy baby has been back for two days!! We had to switch her formula to a sensitive version for babies who spit up a lot (which is strange because she never spits up...nonetheless...), but since the switch she has been a completely different baby. Sure she has had bouts of crying and fussing (what baby doesn't?) but she hasn't had a bout of screaming uncontrollably for hours on end since we made the switch, and that's all I need for proof. I had no idea how hard it would be to listen to your child inconsolably scream like that- not only because you feel so helpless and you're convinced somehow you've broken her, but just because that kind of noise for that length of time kind of makes you feel like you're going crazy in the head!

I've also been able to get out of the house with her a few times this week, and I'm starting to feel like a normal human being again! Being able to load her up and go somewhere has given me this whole new sense of freedom, since after the c-section I wasn't able to drive or lift her car seat.

Tomorrow we have her ONE MONTH CHECKUP! Can someone please slow time down???

Anyways, now that we've achieved some sense of normalcy I promise to post updates more frequently.

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Day Weekend!!

Dear Madelyn,

The pleasure was all mine, truly.
