So lately Jack has been a bit manic. He'll go from happy to screaming and wailing at a moment's notice. All the time. And more than the tiny baby stuff he used to do. After a feeding, in the middle of playing, etc. Does this happen to other babies or is he overly sensitive?
Anyways, one thing that has been working really well to make him happy is to sing to him. Now, I can't sing at all (AT ALL) and John was getting mad at me for seeing the first songs that popped in to my head which always seemed to be terrible pop songs...Jason Mraz, Train, etc. I know, I know. I can't explain it. I know they're terrible. They just popped into my head in the middle of his screaming. So lately I've switched over to camp songs. And, guess what? They work great!! More than great. The little guy is delighted by them. I think it's the sing-songy rhythm and the big hand gestures that go with all the verses. But, man, it's working like a charm. I even got the hubby to start singing them because they work so well. Let's hope it lasts!
