Um no, we certainly aren't very good at soothing Henry at this point in our parenting careers, but we're sure learning a lot. We are trying lots of things, some work, others not so much. Today we discovered that Henry calms down (for awhile at least) when John holds him on his side (Thanks Happiest Baby on the Block). Photo evidence below:
He layed there frozen like this for at least a few minutes...he had his mouth puckered like that and everything.
Then he decided to stretch...he loves to stretch
After the stretching he went straight to his old stand-by position...the muscle man
Then he kind of got over the whole side hold position...but at least it worked for awhile.
