Well, it was a bit of a fluke…the bath that is. Tonight Elijah enjoyed his bath, but was upset afterwards and started crying at the top of his lungs. (Apparently he didn’t think we got him dressed fast enough). It’s so hard to hear him cry and we do whatever we can to make him stop. It is also such a beautiful sound since we had to wait two weeks to hear it and since he really doesn’t do it that often.
I’ve worried before that he is too happy of a baby. A crazy thing to worry about, I know! J With what Elijah has been through, I find all sorts of things to worry about. But, the thing is, I don’t think I need to worry about him being a content baby. I definitely see a personality in him and he has a sense of humor shining through in his eyes. He can definitely get mad; I’ve seen it! He yells so loud that his face gets all red and he starts to cough a little because he’s crying so loud. That’s what he was doing tonight after his bath.
We took the sling out of his tub because he is simply getting too big for it and Elijah wasn’t too sure about this new experience. Now, instead of floating contently in the water in his little hammock, he had to get used to the new feeling of balancing himself in the water. He put his hands up in the air and wanted to hold our hands to steady him. (Who knew you could talk so much about taking a bath?! Parents and their obsession with their children, I tell ya!) Goodnight everyone and thanks again for your continued thoughts and prayers. It means more to me than I can express.
