I think JR and I are finally getting to know one another. I'm beginning to learn the subtle differences in his screams/cries/gasping for breath because he's so mad sounds.
Amazingly, there are differences. The screams are usually to eat-and he goes from super fine and dandy to screaming in .o8 seconds. Thankfully, he is starting to go 3 hours now consistently and even giving us a 4 hour stretch AT NIGHT. Awesome! The cries are usually when he wants to be held, cuddled, or something scared him. The "mad as a hornet", "to mad to even breath" sounds, are usually when he has pooped. Or if I haven't responded to his "I want to be held" cries from earlier.
So, we are figuring each other out, he seems to also know that when I come and start talking he can calm down, because I am there to fix whatever I can. He doesn't mind that I am guessing, he is just glad I am there, and that is such a confidence booster for me.
After all, he is mine, and I am his. God paired us up because we are meant to be together; I just have to remember that, even when I am feeling like a "bad" Mom and think I am getting everything wrong, JR doesn't care, just so long as I am there and doing my best.
Opps...I am starting to hear the "mad as a hornet" cry over the baby monitor....I am off to change a diaper! I think...
