Who is this demon child?

...and what did he do to my smiley, happy boy?

Today is, perhaps, the worst day of A's short life. He woke up a whole lot more than normal at night (and when he wasn't crying, Catcher was...). It got to be so bad, at 5:30, I went in and brought him to bed with us. At that time, he was ready to get up--gurgling in bed, smiling, and kicking... he was ready to play. I fed him and he finally went back to sleep.

Already exhausted, we get up to a very happy and smiley boy... for a few minutes. Not long after I got out of the shower, he started screaming... and it felt like it didn't stop until just recently (2:44pm). We've tried everything--walking around the house, feeding, playing, cuddling, burping.... the only thing we haven't done is put him in the car and drive around for awhile.

He just made the loudest and longest (and apparently, stinkiest) fart ever over on M... maybe that has been the problem all day.

But this kid just will not nap today!!

(Of course, it doesn't help that I have a to-do list that is a mile and a half long to get the house ready for Christmas. But that's neither here nor there...)
