I think we've emerged from the dark side!
Miller's still a little fussy but after trying Mylicon and Gripewater to ease his colic without much success, we shifted strategies and began using something that is working: the 5 S's. The 5 S's are swaddling, shh-ing, swinging, sucking, and side/stomach positioning and are based on the theory that some infants need a fourth "trimester" and that implementing these techniques simulate being back in the womb. Kinda crazy, but at this point I'm willing to do whatever works!
I promise to post some pics of Miller soon- Em's coming over tomorrow morning for a photo shoot- but in the meantime here are a few of Emmylou we've taken recently.
Here she is in a Super Baby onesie (size 6 months) that our friends the Harris's sent to Miller from Baltimore:
And here's a preview of her current Halloween costume choice:
I say "current" because she's already switched from wanting to be Hello Kitty to wanting to be a pumpkin. I'm sure it'll be something else before the holiday actually gets here. She's so excited that she's been taking her favorite "book," the latest Pottery Barn Kids catalog with their Halloween costumes in it, to bed with her every night and asking me to read her the "story."
And here's Emmylou in her new blue tutu from the Gould family! They sent this as a big sister gift last month and she wears it all the time, even sometimes during naps.
