thanksgiving part 1
here is a quick vid of great grandma chivela and akello!
well this past holiday weekend has been great. Akello is 3 months old and we can definitly see the difference. He has turned a corner. crying is limited to:
1. im hungry
2. im tired
3. take me out of this car now!
3. your "coochicoos" have become tiresome. please pass me back to theresa.
it has always gotten easier since the day he was born, each day better than the rest but i think this 3 month b-day is a big jump. i got to tell you though, nothing sucks more than being in the car with akello and having him cry his little lungs out while all you can do is drive. oh, i know something worse. sitting in the backseat with him while someone else drives, and not being able to take him out of his seat to console him, while he just looks at you , crying, to the point of coughing, to the point of a redface and a soar throat. yes. nothing is worse.
we have been taking many trips lately with the holidays and all. an hour trip to san marcos back and forth. that was rough.
the car has been a mystery to us. we have been trying to figure out why he hates car trips. its not his car-seat. he is comfortable until he gets put into the car.
its seems that other babies love the car and fall asleep. well he did too for the first 2 weeks or so, but today is a different story.
we have expiremented with all variables possible, radio, static, quiet, you name it.
more on thanksgiving on the next post. gotto go to bed.
