The Trouble With Teething

The trouble with teething is that, once you realize your babes is teething, every time he or she gets upset, you think it's teething! You forget about the obvious "Oh, she may be hungry" or "she's tired" and instead say "oh, her poor little teeth"... it took us a few days of adjustment before we got back on track to properly read her new cues. Like I always say, every 2-3 weeks, God gives me a new baby - a fabulous baby - but a new one! :)

My advice - go through your usual checklist first - is she hungry, is she tired, poopy bum (this one's usually obvious), etc... then assume it's teething.

A week into this teething thing and it's become obvious when it's teething. Jane typically never cries (knocking on wood) but there's been two nights this week where she's started screeching, tears, everything for what would appear to be no reason but, obviously, must be the two little teeth that are now both like razor blades sticking through her gums.

So far, these teeth have not discovered Mommy's nipples... will keep you posted on that one though!

PS - Here's some pics from our "photoshoot" yesterday. I just love to take pictures of her and she is so patient!

I am quickly becoming a photo addict... I'm positive my facebook friends roll their eyes when I post my "daily" photos! :p

My Mom picked up that outfit at Winners. It's super sweet, a little big still but give it another couple weeks!

I know you're busy! I was wondering about your upholstered glider--do you mind letting me know where you got it and if you like it? That is the project on my nursery list to do right now and yours looks so cute and comfy! Thanks a bunch!! Hallie

Beautiful pictures!

SO TRUE!!! Sage is doing the same thing and I completely forget about the normal checklist...last night..he was just plain tired! Have you tried the Amber teething necklace? We have one, not sure how much it works, but anything is worth a shot. The new pics are great!!

Jessica said...

Oh, gosh...she has gotten even more beautiful! She is gorgeous, Jen! Those EYES!

Thanks for all your comments guys!

Hallie - the glider is from Costco. I got it online at costco.ca under the baby furniture section. Personally, I like it a lot better that the regular gliders and it's more comfy and I like the look of it. However, with that said, I hate that it's not wide enough that Jane can lay across my lap when bf-ing and not have to be curled up... although, I'm pretty sure it would be no different with a regular glider. :)
