Let me begin with a little bit of background. My husband and I had our first baby, a boy. He was perfect in every way as all babies are, but he was more than just perfect. He really was amazing. He was always happy, slept great right from the beginning and he was as cute as can be. We felt as though we had hit the jackpot when it came to parenting a newborn. He continued to be an “easy” baby and toddler. Life was great. Parenting was great.
