Could you bear the sight of tears on this face?



This morning I put Baby down for her nap at 10.20am. She only just stopped crying and it's been forty minutes. Presumably she's asleep...

(It's a photo of Baby looking at her mummy instead of having her lunch).

Sounds rough, Violet. I bet all those other mothers are lying.

Maybe you should reconsider the baby cage - then you can just leave the house and you won't hear her crying ;)

She's so cute. Hang in there..

Violet said...

flying kiwi: you'd cage up a face as cute as this one?!?!

happyandblue2: I can, as long as I know I'm not going to get flamed for posting about it...

I'd cage the baby - even if she is cute, you could always put a brown paper bag over the head to hide the cuteness. Or you could get some decent ear plus to numb the sound..... hehehehe, I'm going for dad of the year ;-)

I'm glad there's no accidental lunch container in the photo

Very cute- she looks a lively happy little rascal.

And she's going to keep getting cuter.

Violet said...

onscreen: paper bag huh? It could work...

editter: Oh, I was careful to leave out the lunch container!

mtnw: rascal is right. I reckon she's going to continue to be a handful as she gets older. And good for her too (though not so convenient for me).

eb: as I said, the paper bag might be a good idea...

this is my take on the whole letting them cry thing. you've fed them, you've burped them, you've changed them...there is nothing you can do. you need to let them sooth themselves. it's not like their in pain. it's just the only way they know how to express themselves, their frustration and their fatigue.

Violet said...

glomgold: yep, the camera loves her.

juliabohemian: in my case it's complicated by the fact that Baby doesnt feed much except at night. This means that, even though she's repeatedly shown no interest in food, there's always a chance that she is in fact hungry...
