"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes-and ships-and sealing-wax-
Of cabbages-and kings-
And why the sea is boiling hot-
And whether pigs have wings."

- The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carrol
(From Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

Witching Hour

Abbey has a witching hour.  Sometimes three hours.  It ranges from general fussiness to complete meltdown.  It's been going on for a few weeks now, and overall, it's not too horrible, and isn't every night.  Thank goodness.  I've been struggling to find something that would calm her down, but I believe I may have finally figured it out.

Abbey likes a good sing along.  Just like her Mom.  So, I've started to sing to her when she gets cranky, and it's amazing how it calms her right down.  We swaddle, rock, sing, and low and behold: happy baby. 


We're working our way through my favorite Beatles songs.  We started with the Abbey Road album.  Seems appropriate.
