The crying.
The nursing.
The foot-stomping Rumpelstiltskin act.
The nursing.
The short naps.
The nursing.
The staying up late.
The nursing.
The waking up early.
The nursing.
The hysteria, the mania, the weeping over being pulled away from another baby’s Goldfish crackers.
The nursing.

A canine tooth, top left, like the creeping growth of a stalactite.

At last, a nap without crying!

And the stalactite grows.
