COLIC

The last few nights Alister has started being very fussy about the time Santi gets home from work. I feel bad about this because he’s usually pretty good during the day, so all he gets to see is Mr. Cranky Pants.

However, yesterday was very bad. He started crying very early on in the day. At the grocery store in fact. Yes, people were staring at me, but nothing I was doing was soothing him, so I just kept shopping til I had what I needed. It was like that all day.

Then when Santi got home it got worse. He pretty much just screamed until 11 pm. It was awful. I contemplated giving him back. I thought maybe his stomach was hurting, but after he had a really big poop-splosion, he was still crying.

I decided to walk in the backyard with him because he likes the outdoors. I wasn’t really thinking about the fact that it was 10 o’clock at night. Of course a neighbor came out to get her dogs who were barking at us and kept staring at me. I’m sure she thought I was beating our child. I’m still waiting for CPS to stop by. I decided to go inside after that.

Finally after walking the floor some more inside he wore himself out. It was pretty awful. I felt helpless, angry, annoyed, and tired.

He seems MUCH better today. He’s still a little fussy, but he smiled at me this morning, so I guess we’ll keep him.
