I tweeted last night (on my right side bar) that Jonah had been incredibly fussy yesterday. It was a rough day. Today has been infinitely better. He was back to his old self today, laughing, kicking, shaking his head. Ahhh. That's my Jonah. I feel so much for mommies of colicky babies. I'm not sure I could take it. It really gets to my nerves. But maybe I'd have more patience for it if I didn't have to deal with all this stuff... probably not.
We made it to church this morning. Jonah loved the music and singing, but once again, had very low tolerance for the preaching part. We were able to come back in at the end for the closing songs, though. Matt and I just rotate weeks of who keeps him out in the foyer. I actually don't mind it too much. My friend Monica's baby, Maddie, usually won't stay in the nursery, so a lot of times I get to spend the time chatting with her, and Jonah likes watching Maddie run around. It's win win, really. I don't know if I'll ever be brave enough to leave him in the nursery. It's not that I wouldn't trust the volunteers to handle him correctly, but the idea of the germs make me shudder. Having Jonah has turned me into quite the germaphobe.
We just hung around here this afternoon. Jonah slept for an hour a half this afternoon in his bed. Now if only he would do that when Daddy's not at home. I didn't take a nap, so I'm off to bed myself here in a few minutes. Jonah gushed again tonight, although we didn't put the protein or anything different in his bottle, so I have no idea why. That's three nights in a row now. Frustrating. Anyway, because the gushing woke him up, we didn't get him settled back down and in bed until probably 9:45. He's slept the last two nights all night, so I'm hoping for the same again tonight.
Anyway, sorry the last couple days have been more informative than fun. We just haven't done a whole lot. I didn't go to Whole Foods after all. I mean, it is ALL the way over in Winston. It would have taken a lot more energy than what I had to get over there and shop. Most of the time I hate shopping, for groceries or otherwise. I have to be in just the right mood. Today I just wanted to bum around. And so I did.
Don't miss the SMA video below. It's only a couple minutes long, and it's very powerful. There are many disorders worse than EB... SMA is one of them. Poor babies.
