For me, every cry triggers a guessing game. When was she last fed? Does she have a dirty diaper? Is there a gas bubble that needs help getting out? Is it time for another nap? With every cry, I go down my list of possible crying causes and, most of the time, I can figure out what she needs. But it’s not because I understand her baby language, it’s because I’m actually a great mami who’s willing to take the time to figure it out.
