06:00 am: The Meltdown
We had a lovely visit with a group of business school friends yesterday. Among 5 couples, we had 4 babies (6 months, 15 months, 18 months, and 27 months) and 2 pregnancies (due in August and December). Because of nap-time conflicts, each of the babies had his or her cranky moments, but Teddy eclipsed them all.

My sweet, lovely baby went berserk. Full-out screaming. Pounding the floor (and me). Screaming. Kicking. Screaming. Throwing his head back, arching his spine, and screaming.

Did I mention the screaming?

When he's hungry, he sometimes has a wee tantrum. If we can get a spoonful of food (or a boob) into his gaping maw, he'll settle down and eat.

Not yesterday.

After having a marvelous time bickering over trucks in the wading pool (trucks! and water! together!) and swishing bubble-array makers through the air and eating random fruit and all that glorious stuff, Teddy got completely over-heated. It took me several minutes to figure out what the heck was going on (what? he doesn't want to nurse? when does this child ever NOT want to nurse??). After I stuck him in the bathtub and rinsed him with cold water, he calmed right down. And slept for almost 2 straight hours.
