I need pictures

It's really hard for me to blog without pictures. And I've been seriously lazy about taking pictures.

Sometimes, stupid little things happen that I think, "Oh, I should take a picture of Caleb with that, or doing that, so I can write about it on the blog." Yeah, maybe those stories will come some day.

We've been having more cranky days. Really bad cranky days. Today (being Saturday), I got so frustrated, after only an hour of watching Caleb, that I brought him into the bedroom where Brandon was sleeping. Both Caleb and I were crying (though you could argue his was more fussing than crying). What a sight to wake up to. Brandon's been really good and patient with both of us, but I don't know how much longer I can take the crankiness. Hopefully I'll toughen up soon.

Anyway, here's a picture I don't think I ever posted. It was taken a couple weeks ago. Sometimes, after changing Caleb's diaper, we stand him up to pull up his pants and he holds onto the wall. (Though, usually, he stands up facing me and holds onto me instead of the wall.) But we think it's such a hilarious pose. Shows him for the true criminal he is.

Caleb is just trying to tell you that he misses being at Nana's house, that's why he's been so cranky. I've been going through withdrawal- no blogs since Wednesday! Ouch.

Have you taken him to the pediatrician? It could be an ear infection... or he could be just teething. Sara was super cranky, not sleeping a week ago. took her to the dr. really bad stomach virus. followed dr advice... life is soooo much better. i always take my kids to the dr after prolonged episodes of unexplained cranky/sleeplessness because Nora had severe ear infections and those were the only symptoms. good luck.

Same with Agnes. Ear infection. No symptoms except cranky, cranky, cranky. She'd cry for 30 minutes to 2 hours for no explainable reason. It doesn't hurt to take him in.
