I took my little peanut to the doctor yesterday and the poor little guy has colic. The doctor said it wasn't an extreme case but that definitely explains all of the fussiness we've had the last 10 days or so. Campbell is on three different medicines now so hopefully they'll make him feel better. He cried and cried all day yesterday. It's so exhausting!! I'm not one who can just shut the door and let him cry. I feel the need to do everything I can to try to make it stop. I just can't stand a crying baby! Last night, after his bath, Campbell was just so precious and cuddly. I think I kiss his cheeks a million times a day. He's starting to get some meat on his bones and I love it!
Campbell did a lot better today and hardly cried at all. I'd like to think the medicine has kicked in and is working already but I honestly think it's just my answered prayers. I've prayed and prayed over Campbell for the Lord to make him feel better so he can be a happy baby. My heart breaks that he feels bad. I can just tell that his tummy bothers him all the time and it kills me that I can't fix it for him right away. We've had 2 really great days this week so hopefully we're on the road to recovery.
My little Ivy has been so needy today. I'm getting pretty good at holding her and Campbell at the same time. Madison has been needy too. She's been relentless about wanting me to play toys with her. My heart gets really sad for them sometimes. With Campbell being fussy like he has, it's demanded nearly all of my attention. Any time he's asleep I grab my girls and shower them with as much attention as possible. I don't know how Mom's manage when they have a newborn + other little ones in the house. I imagine it's so challenging and you feel guilty a lot. My little peanut just went down for bed so I'm going to hop off now so I can spend some time with my little nuggets. Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Medicine?!? Dude. I need to switch to your pediatrician. Would have helped me out A LOT with colicky Suzannah! Praying all gets easier soon and you have a happy boy! So sorry. It's SO hard!!!

    1. Umm this medicine is a miracle worker!! If Natalie has colic (I pray she doesn't) you have to get some. He's on Gerber Soothe Colic Drops (over the counter) plus Hyosyne Oral Drops (prescription). He is a totally different baby now. Praying it continues!!
