Tantrums and tummy aches

Ryan and I have had a crash course in parenting two kids over the past couple of days. Will's having a tough time adjusting to Bryn - when she cries, he goes ballistic. At first, he would just start crying. Unfortunately, his behavior is escalating and he's taken to throwing things. We've already had one glass vase casualty. If breaking things doesn't get our attention, he'll come and hit us. To say it's been frustrating is a huge understatement. We've tried everything we can think of but nothing seems to be working. We hope it's just a phase and that it will pass soon, but that's highly unlikely. Introducing Miss Bryn into the household was just the beginning of a bunch of changes over the next month or so, so things are going to be tough on everyone.

To make matters worse, Bryn is having some spit up issues. Within the past couple of days, she's started throwing up after every feeding. She's not been happy. And I don't even want to mention the c-word (the dreaded colic), but she's showing some signs and it makes me nervous. Can you imagine the chaos if baby girl starts crying on end every evening? Her crying is definitely the trigger point for Will's out of control behavior, so there would certainly be some unrest in our home. I don't even want to think about that possibility right about now.

So wish us luck as we try to get through these last couple of weeks in Buffalo. We've got our moving quotes and now need to pick a company. Then I've got to get my butt in gear and get packing!!!
