A quarter of a year. Really? Can it be? Must admit, he was a much easier baby than James was. James took me to hell and back. Although, since he turned 3 months old, Jax decided to change the game.
Crying. Oh SO much crying. From him and from me. The dreaded witching hour arrived and it is killing me slowly to be honest. I am tired, I am drained and I feel helpless. Why does this kid have to cry so much before bedtime? Doesn’t matter what I do, how perfect his routine is during the day, 7pm comes and the screaming starts. Usually only 30 minutes so I am pretty lucky, but trust me when I say that those 30 minutes feel like a lifetime. The constant screaming, not crying, screaming that comes out of those little lungs petrify me and I feel numb. What do I do? What can I do? Eventually i realize, nothing. Nothing I do is going to make this go by faster. I remember this witching hour with James SO well, only, James cried 3 hours each evening. 3 hours, 30 minutes, you still feel just as helpless. (Tips? Any advice? All is welcome!)
Besides that, things are going great. He is picking up weight really well and James has adjusted to having his little bro around. James has realized there’s times to be quiet and how to be gentle. He has even asked to change Jax’s nappies, and I let him, but obviously I am there to help. James taps Jax’s bum when he is crying and even runs around the house looking for a dummy. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all moonshine and roses. James had his days where he wants to be the baby. He wants that undivided attention too. We honestly try our best and so far it’s working out quite alright. If you have any tips with dealing with a toddler while trying to give attention to a baby – please let me know! All advice is welcome.
Jax is finally getting some personality and the giggles, smiles and coo’s definitely make up for the hardships. “Momming” must be the hardest thing I have ever done, but i would not change it for the world. Happy 3 months Jax! Let the next three months be just as entertaining. (I’m pretty sure it will be!)
