A mouth full of toofies… or I should rather say ALMOST a mouth full of toofies, because the last 4 are making their way through. We’ve been struggling with Jamie with sleep last week (and a bit of grumpyness), but we never realised it might be due to teething, because during the day he was 100% well. But this weekend when hubby tickled Jamie I peered inside Jamie’s mouth and I saw that 1 tip of his top molar broke through the gum and then the penny dropped. Then on Monday I played with Jamie and he lauged with his mouth wide open and I had time to take a good look and I was amazed to see that all 4 are busy cutting – in different stages – the bottom one is halfway through, the other bottom one has two tips through and the top each has one tip through.
I can’t wait till they’re completely through, because I could see this past two days that he isn’t himself and it must hurt like hell! This mommy is going to pop a bottle of champage when this is over, that’s for sure! Teething sucks, it’s terrible, terrible, terrible – 20 toofies that caused so many battles: struggling with eating, lack of sleep, fevers, snot noses, runny tummies – thank goodness it’s almost over!
Just look at those perfect pearly whites!
