On Wednesday night, Christopher reverted back to newborn-style sleep, waking every two hours or so. Today I saw, or rather, felt, why. Teeth!

His first tooth has poked through on the lower right side. Clare got her first tooth right around this same age - four months. It is early, yes, but apparently teething, like so many things, is genetic. Both of my children got my early teething genes. How special for them!

I am glad I have this blog, because I have forgotten how to handle teething. Helpfully, though, I wrote that Clare liked chewing on a frozen wet washcloth. Off to the linen closet I go!

Happy weekend.

Edited to Add: Tooth number two on the lower left side = no sleep on Saturday night. Yippee!

Growing teeth is hard.


  1. UGH. TEETH. Poor baby. Poor mama. I try to remember that it's good we don't remember it because it probably feels AWFUL. But also, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Hang in!

  2. He sure didn't seem cranky when we came to visit yesterday!!! What a sweet, happy baby boy! So alert, too! And Clare was too cute, just wanting to be "one of the boys." (You can tell your sister that her basketball hoop was a big hit!) Looking forward to our next get-together. Hope you're able to get some REST! xo
