Hanging in there!

It is really hard to be a parent. When the baby isn't crying and is happy that is the easy part. When Lil D crys and he has been fed and his diaper has just been changed it's really hard to figure out why. Why...why? Does he need to be burped again, does he have a tummy ache, does he have gas, does he feel lonely or bored, is he being overstimulated, is he too hot, is he too cold? So much to guess at. It is really frustrating. Then later on in the day he eats and then falls right to sleep without a peep. If I don't "guess" the right thing I feel like a bad Mom. Shouldn't I be able to figure out what he needs...Mother's intuition? My intuition is broken. I still haven't figured out his different cries yet either. The only cry I know is this whiny little putter cry he has and I don't even know what that one means. I will just keep trying to do my best!! It will get easier!!! How cute is he:

-Until tomorrow

Keep on hanging in there and the next time you get a twinge of guilt because you feel like a bad mother, remember this mother, http://magic-city-news.com/article_6406.shtml, and this mother, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082766/, and then you will feel better!
