Admittedly, we have been very lucky this time around when it comes to crying. Stella does not do much of it at all. Now, don't get me wrong. She does cry. She does throw quite the tiny little diva fit. But on the whole, especially compared to her brothers, crying is not a problem at all.
You might remember that I mentioned Braeden had colic. Well, crying was kind of his thing. Seriously. He cried. A lot. All the time. But we're over it, finally. Well, mostly. Jackson cried quite a bit too, mostly out of frustration. He also had (has) quite the little temper. But Stella. She's been a breeze.
Crying is one area where we cannot complain in the least, and I couldn't be happier about it. We put in our time with the boys when they were babies. We did the exhausted parent of the baby who is a handful. Now we are reaping the rewards of that with Stella. Our easy baby.
However, don't think that our time with the boys as infants was all tears, dirty diapers, and vomit. It wasn't. They were amazing babies and taught us a lot about parenting and ourselves. Things that we have been able to bring to the table when it comes to raising Stella. For that we're grateful, and I'm sure Stella will be one day too. They broke us in.
Maybe we're just more experienced. Maybe we're just calmer. Maybe being older changes things. Or maybe Stella really just is an easier baby. Whatever the reason, I'm not complaining at all. I'm happy for the lack of crying this time around. Very happy.
All is well, 3/26 down, in Drosche Land.
