Ladies and Gentleman, we have our two front teeth, and we didn’t even have to wait ’til Christmas to ask for them!! Actually, I was sort of hoping it would be closer to Christmas for him to get them, but since he’s not complaining, I won’t either!! I want to breastfeed for at least the first year, so the longer he goes before sprouting those tiny shards of glass (that’s how they feel, at least) the better!
I can’t believe how amazingly he’s handled it! Aside from a bit of extra drool and a few nighttime wakes, he has been such a trooper! We’ve given him some Hyland’s Teething Tablets sometimes when it’s really obvious he’s a little uncomfortable. Other than that, lending him our fingers to gnaw on is the most we’ve had to do for pain! He’s been his happy, charming little self and I couldn’t feel more blessed. Not only does it make life a little easier because he’s not cranky or fussy, it makes it easier because when he hurts, Mommy’s heart hurts. Here’s hoping the rest of the teeth are just as easy as the first! *fingers crossed*
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. – Romans 15:13
