What Fresh New Hell is This? :P

The title of this post is taken from a cancer support group saying. It's their way of making light of yet another heavy situation.

What's our new heavy situation? Well, it's really not that heavy. In fact, it's quite...

...normal. God be praised.



Just when we thought we were on top of the EB (for now), along comes the normal developmental milestones!

Anyone sleeping out there through the night?

WE'RE NOT!!!! :)

It's allllllll goooooood. It's quite refreshing and a little bit cute and funny compared to the scary moments that have dominated the landscape these past 6 months. However, it does make for a crabbier-than-usual baby which creates more wounds on the face and head from temper tantrums. Combine that with the fact that the pacifier is the only way she will fall asleep, and if she's teething and mad, sucking on the binky has NOT been making her happy. We're thinking of keeping one in the fridge that's nice and cool when she really loses her cool. Hey EB parents, what successful strategies have you employed?

Outside of that, and the incessant drooling, life rocks. Nanny is making custom bibs so we don't have to change Bella 5 times a day. Man, the laundry is ALWAYS running between the diapers and blankets/clothing etc...

Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for watching the girls so we could catch a Matinee yesterday! WEEEEE!!! New Moon was AWESOME (compared to Twilight). Seriously. I'm a sensitive guy so those movies aren't too really was about 90% pretty cool! Guys, don't fear Taylor's pecs! LOL

Okay. Gotta run. Thanks for being there!


  1. Three words: Hyland Teething Tablets!

  2. wow....your friend Sara and I on the same page...
    Those things are awesome...
    and I am not sleeping either...we should have a party.
    I am impressed you admit to the New Moon movie!

  3. We're in the same hell that you are :) My daughter was born 2 days after Bella, and I have to say that the last 2 weeks of the incessant night time crying, and daytime irritability, just are not fun for anyone.
