Teething Trouble

Sadie woke up ten times last night.  That's more then once every hour.  And that is a lot of waking up (and consequently, very little sleeping).  So tonight my blog will be short.  

I'm a sucker for the little outfits that they sell that say "Baby's First..."  In November I realized that there was going to be a problem in the coming months.  While I could squeeze a five month old Sadie into a twelve month onsie that said "Baby's First Thanksgiving" on Thanksgiving and photograph her in her "Baby's First Christmas" outfit (also twelve months) at the beginning of December, that strategy wasn't going to work for long.  There was no way she would be squeezing into a twelve month "Baby's First Valentine's Day" Outfit in February or a "Baby's First St. Patrick's Day" Outfit in March (I actually naively bought one of these in a twelve month size last March, thinking that it would be a tiny bit big this year).  

And because I haven't seen a Big and Tall store for babies under a year who are wearing 2T sizes I guess I will just have to accept the fact that Sadie will not be wearing a Baby's First Valentine's Day outfit on Saturday.  

Sadie Update:  I think we can officially say that Sadie is teething.  She's pulling her ears and rubbing her face and I can feel a rough little tooth starting to break through.  And she is completely miserable.  Hopefully this passes soon.  The book says "teething can last from several hours, to days, to weeks."  I'm hoping for hours...

You must try Hyland's teething tablets. They're great for teething. I'm sure you've gotten all kinds of teething advice. Try them all and find what works for you. Teething is miserable for baby and Mom. Hang in there. And watch out for those 2-year molars. They're the worst!
