You'll be a sweet girl, won't you?

My dearest Pie is a high-maintenance baby. She is very vocal, and fairly demanding. We have gone from colic directly into teething, and it appears she has some level of social anxiety as well. It can be exhausting.

She has moments, sometimes even long stretches of time, when she is incredible. She is snuggly, and smiley, and squeaky. She is so happy to be with us and to be chatting or playing. Those moments still bring tears to my eyes.

But at this point we can't figure out whether the anxious, unhappy baby is who she is and the happy baby is the exception to the rule, or if it's the other way around. I have my fingers, toes, arms, legs, etc crossed hoping that she is a happy baby who is just having a bit of a rocky start. Please let that be true...
