We've got him on a schedule that is
Despite the fact that they can't talk, can't walk and are pretty much boorish in their manner, it turns out, infants can occasionally be fun.
To be fair and at least partially objective, the baby can't always be beautiful, particularly when he's angry. And when our little guy is angry, whew boy, he is ANGRY.
|"I can't decide whether to rest my hand on my chin and
contemplate life or yell at you. So, I'll attempt both."
And, many times I find it funny. Sorry if that makes me bad or insensitive. But, if he's got a clean diaper, he's fed and burped but otherwise inconsolable, I sometimes laugh at his furor, particularly if he's making faces I find funny.
I've maintained since he was born that our son looks like a different baby when he's really wailing. This only ads to the humor.
When he's really tuned up and angry, he gets lines on his forehead and a crease on the bridge of his nose. To top it off he takes on the color of a concord grape.
All this, coupled with his round, bald head leaves him looking more like an enraged old man than a baby. (I like to picture him wearing that same expression but dressed in an old, tweed suit, rudely interrupting town council meetings.)
His range of noises is broadening too. Instead of his noises either being the sucking sound of a bottle, or a blaring wail, he's starting to make cute baby noises
If we can enjoy the cries and the tantrums at this stage, I like to think it bodes well for how much we'll enjoy the sounds we've yet to hear, like laughter and a speaking voice.
