We haz a tooth!
And we aren't exactly thrilled about it! Poor little G. She didn't sleep very well at all the other night, and then yesterday morning she was sticking her tongue out a lot. I decided to feel her gum and sure enough, I felt a little sharp something poking through on the bottom left (her right)! I was totally surprised, because while she slept poorly, she still wasn't up all night screaming or anything. She was a little fussy during the morning, but yesterday afternoon I guess it all hit home, because she could not stop screaming from the pain. I felt so horrible for her. I gave her some all natural Camilia from Whole Foods to help and I guess it did help a little because she was able to calm down enough to finally go down for her afternoon nap (and she slept for 2 1/2 hours after that). We are now stocked up with Baby Orajel and her teethers are all cooling in the freezer. Whew!
As I told her, I'd rather grow a massive tooth out of my forehead than have to have her go through this pain, but I know she's not going to want to be eating puree-d everything when she's 20 so teeth it is. I made her a nice juicy steak to celebrate.
Yeah right, I would never do that. Steak is so gross.
Here's another look at the lil guy pokin through...
Here, I'll help.
