Abby is starting to be more and more aware of her surroundings, including the fact that things are uncomfortable.
Tom was playing with her yesterday and she hit herself in the head with a rattle, only to start crying hysterically. Then today I sneezed while she was in her play yard and it startled her ... more crying ensued.
I find it interesting that there is some part of the brain that must switch on to allow Abby to realize things aren't fun. I mean ... she has hit herself in the head with plenty of rattles and she has been startled numerous times ... why has it just now become upsetting?
