Days are long

The days are long, but the years are short. That's how the saying goes I think.

For us, in this moment of life, it would be more appropriate to say the afternoons are long but the weeks are short (or the months or the years I suppose). Right now we're in a little bit of payback mode since she was a ridiculously easy baby. She never had a witching hour, never really cried for no apparent reason. Well, she is making up for lost time. Particularly from the moment she wakes up from her nap and until dinnertime she is in what seems like a constant state of crying, whining or clinging. Anything and everything sets her off. Yesterday I took away the phone and she cried so intensely that she was literally gagging and I thought for sure she was going to vomit. C'mon.

I don't remember Simon being this emotionally unhinged at this age. Maybe she is getting it all out of her system now and by the time she is 2 or 3, she will be a normal human being. Or maybe I just blocked it out when Simon was this age and in a few years I'll look back at Cecilia at 15 months with pure fondness and remember only that she was adorable.

Which she is of course.


  1. You're in good company. I think Simon was either superchld or you blocked it out. Even though it is is not easy. We are in the same exact shoes. Rr

  2. Even though it's normal,,,it's not easy, Haha rr
