A Long Cry

I think Robert may have broken a record last night. He cried for a good hour and twenty minutes. We tried various techniques to figure out what was wrong/get him to stop crying, but nothing seemed to help. Finally I just plopped down on the couch with him and we watched Family Guy together. Apparently he finds Family Guy boring because he was out within five minutes. I let him lay on my chest for ten or fifteen more minutes, and then I put him to bed.

I hate (seemingly) random crying. It can really make a guy feel like a crappy parent. That usually isn’t true, of course. Sometimes babies cry for no reason, and sometimes babies cry for a reason that you just can’t figure out. Unfortunately, knowing that doesn’t make it any easier to look into a hysterical child’s eyes.
