Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

Teething is no fun

Emma slept a lot today and I was wondering why...until she woke up from her afternoon nap. Poor baby is teething and has a little bit of a fever, which of course makes her feel bad. She was a little fussy, didn't eat a whole lot at dinner, and though she drank a good bottle in the late afternoon she did not want any more before bed. I gave her some infant Tylenol to help with her achiness and she is now sleeping (hopefully well). I didn't force her to let me look in her mouth, but I'm guessing she's getting a molar or two. She usually gets a bit fussy when teething but still eats well and no fever....hence my assumption that it's a molar because it seems to be a bigger deal for her. I'm praying she'll feel better tomorrow. I don't like seeing my babies hurting....

Have you seen those Hylands Teething Tablets(natural)? I used to use them for the twins when they were teething. I hope she is feeling better soon!!

Oh girlfriend...I need to send you an email ;) It's been so hectic with the upcoming move. We must catch up and "chat".
