Looking for MP3 of the Simpons' Screamapillar

Why am I looking for that you ask?
What the H-E-Double Hockey-sticks is that you ask?
Does the RIAA know about this you ask?

In reverse order...
The RIAA and I are aleady working on a plan for free electricity for everyone (under 30).
The screamapillar was the endangered species that made its home in the fountain that Homer gave to Marge for their anniversary. This required Homer to spend day and night preserving the poor thing whose every instinct was bent on its self destruction.
It is the closest sound that approximates Baby Will's crying. He doesn't really whimper or sob, he just screams. From being asleep to the piercing scream in seconds.

Interesting note: neither the vial of blood drawn from his arm, the shots to his feet and thighs, the imprinting, the measuring or the rectal temperature takiing ellicited this howl. Only, waking up from a nap, or getting his diaper changed seems to cause it.
I am not sure whether this is a blessing or not. But he certainly need not fear us sleeping through his cries.

In good news. Like his sister, he appears to be a quick study. Last night he slept for around six hours, (1-4am and 5-7am). That left both Carly and I relatively refreshed. The benefits of a good night sleep are not to be underestimated.

BTW: Sophie is fascinated by Will and not very jealous at all. She wants to touch him all of the time. Luckily, she has also decided it would be fun to copy mommy and daddy's act of handwashing. She will pick up the hand sanitizer and point it into her palm and then rub her hands together. So she is happy to have us squirt some on to her palm for the full effect. Of course, most times right after this washing, she sticks her fingers in her mouth. Oh well. It is a start.

hmm... so why *are* you looking for an mp3 of the screamapillar? If you played it at William when he screams, maybe you could confuse him into being quiet?
Interesting baby theory, but I don't think I'd try it.
Get Carly to tell us how she's doing!
