Colic

Emily had her one month well check today.  She weighs 9 pounds and is 20 3/4 inches long.  The doctor said she looks perfect, which we knew.  After talking to the pediatrician she confirmed what we've suspected...Emily has colic.   Unfortunately there is nothing we can do but wait it out.

Over the past month I've found myself dreading evening because I know that my sweet baby is going to be angry and inconsolable.  It breaks my heart every night to know that she's unhappy and I can't do anything to make it better.  Some night I feel like I cry more than she does.  Thankfully Emily is getting better and not crying as long each night.  I know that one day this will end.  I just wish it were tomorrow.
