Madeline Lee is seven weeks old today.
Madeline's medication seems to be working a bit. She's not constantly uncomfortable like she was last week.
However, we had another big crying fit last night. It started around seven thirty, and we got her to sleep around midnight. I've never heard her cry so loud. Poor girl. She hadn't had a fit since Thursday night. (Obviously, The Office was on.) I knew it was too good to last.
On the bright side, they say colic tends to disappear around three months. That means theoretically we only have a month left of this. We'll see.
Maddie's neck is continuing to strengthen. She can hold her head up almost completely by herself now. When she starts getting fussy, we take her on tours of the apartment and describe everything to her. She loves to listen to our voices, and she loves music. Yesterday, I had her on her playmat with some music playing in the background, and she fell dead asleep. She stayed there on the floor sleeping happily for almost two hours.
And, to show off her new head-holding skills, here's a little video that will probably be very boring to anyone who is not her parents or grandparents.
