ch-ch-ch-ch-changes...

milo has been changing lately, in a good way. most of his early months he spent being fussy, irritable, uncomfortable, and just pretty much inconsolable. over time things gradually improved, although many more obstacles were thrown his way, such as seizures, feeding tubes, etc... but my point is, although his mood gradually improved to an extent, up until the last few weeks i wouldn't have called milo a happy baby....and it broke my heart. he liked to be held, but never wanted to cuddle. he cried, a lot. he arched. he screamed. he fussed. then all of a sudden....everything changed. he wants to snuggle all the time now (and i love it). he is more relaxed, more easy going, and more comfortable in his own skin. he seems content, which makes me content. there is still a long road ahead of us, but for right now we are enjoying our triumphs...and i am enjoying my happy baby.

Thanks for the comment on my blog... sorry I haven't updated since the storm. We are fine just trying to catch up still.

Milo is a cutie!... and I, too, know a bit about irritable babies... I'm glad he is having a good spell and that it sticks!

I just got caught up on Milo - read about his G-tube, your experince with Dr. W, Milo's good moods. I COMPLETELY understand what it is like to experience a child who is so frequently fussy. O is 14 months and we still have our days on a pretty regular basis. It DOES get better - for O, it has been slow, but the reward is so great. I am so sorry you had to deal with Dr. W - but you advocated for Milo in the end - that is what matters. And the G-tube... the hardest decision relating to Owen's care we've yet to make. I am so happy that you are all home and feeling better. You'll get back into your routines and over time, the tube will seem so normal, It gave us such a better quality of life - less time force feeding, holding, O vomiting and more time bonding, stretching, playing. Hang in there and feel free to write any time you need a shoulder.
