TEETH! No wait, what...


So the bad sleeping the last week finally has a verified culprit - TEETH! Well, tooth. A bigg'un coming up in the classic spot right in the bottom front. From the horror stories we should be grateful that we have had it so easy but getting woken up with screaming every night for a week is still not something I easily feel grateful for. I guess the breastfeeding at night at least will continue since this is the only thing that calms her down. Aside from the crying, it's possible our Week of Explosive Poos a couple weeks back might also been related but both OH and I are desperately hoping that was just a cold.

And then yesterday  - tooth gone! I have heard this happens, the teeth come up in bursts, sinking back under the gums from time to time. It's starting to take its toll because the only thing that comforts our Munchkin seems to be booby. She is only bothered at night (presumably she is distracted during the day or who knows). But it's been a couple weeks and I am starting to feel like the zombie I was the first couple months of parenthood. Hope this damn tooth just comes in already and stops f-ing around. Subsequent teeth may or may not be this bad, so I am remaining optimistic that this will be as bad as it gets.

Crazy! The tooth really sucked back up? That's nuts. BTW, the booby pacifies me as well. Ha!
