The Witching Hours...

Sweet Connor Francis - as hard as it is to imagine - has a few hours everyday where he is upset. I mean UPSET with life and we ever-so lovingly refer to those hours as "the witching hours." He is UPSET and he wants EVERYONE to know about it. There is nothing you can do to fix whatever seems to ail him between 4pm and 7pm, but he is UPSET and he lets you know about it! It is kind of funny, he can be eating and the minute he is done, if it is between 4pm and 7pm, he cries. If he wakes up from a nap - he cries, if he is playing and finds he is tired of not being held, he cries. We have found the "cure" is when he looks like he does below is to hold him...

and he usually continues to look like the above and it eventually makes way into the below face

until it finally gives way and he is sleeping like a perfect little angel. usually around 8pm!

Whew! And we have all survived another set of the "witching hours"! He is really funny because he will just talk and talk and talk all about it! I have recently discovered that he likes to be held facing out so he can look around, but you have to be standing when doing so and bouncing. That seems to suffice! :) Lukily he is super cute and we love him through anything, even "the witching hours!"
