Oliver at his fussy finest in my presence

The other day, I wrote about how calm Oliver was in my mom’s arms. Well, it’s quite the opposite when I’m the one in charge. It’s been especially bad of late, with his diaper rash, bad gas and feeding-frenzy-induced growth spurt.

Last night, I think he slept about three hours, and I probably slept about two-thirds of that total. Thankfully, Sarah let me sleep in this morning, so I got another solid three hours before eating a hearty bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios around 11:30 a.m. (that was followed by lunch at 2 p.m., and I still haven’t showered as of 3:30 p.m. — what a nice schedule I’m on).

Sarah made her first venture out of the house without me this afternoon. Oliver was extremely fussy the entire time (basically, it’s been the standard for the past 24 hours, so nothing new, right?). He finally fell asleep about 10 minutes before Sarah got home. The trick was putting him in his swing and cranking the music up to notch 10 to drown out his crying. Surprisingly, it worked.

Anyway, I thought I’d post a little short video of Oliver at his fussy finest in my presence. Enjoy:

  1. Awe! Poor little guy looks just beside himself! That’s a diaper rash cry for sure. Try not to take it personally 🙂

  2. I wonder what he’s crying about – I heard that babies have different cries for needing different things. Funny, he didn’t cry when I held him!

  3. Justin Ryan Lopinot how can you just let him cry like that!! Give the guy a break, if you had gas and a rash on your bottom I don’t hink you would be too happy either. It gets better, easier, just stay calm. Great Grandma Carol says give him lots of love, you won’t spoil him. Love you guys!!

  4. Well, he didn’t have diaper rash when you held him last Friday. Coincidence? Or perhaps you gave him the diaper rash. I smell a conspiracy (or at least another dirty diaper; seriously, something smells).

  5. Oliver’s crying is breaking my “grandma-heart”. I want to come right over and hold him!! Such a sweet baby.

  6. I miss you guys and Oliver. It breaks my heart, too, when he is crying and unhappy. He doesn’t know what is wrong. Hold him, love him. Days will get better. Love you!

  7. It is awful that I saw this and laughed…??!! Not because I enjoy seeing babies cry, but I remember being so punch drunk in those first few weeks that you start to just laugh in spite of everything. Ahh…. that clip brought me back!
