teeth, teeth, and more teeth

Our poor little guy has been miserable off and on for the past week and a half. He has his good and bad moments, and what extremes. When he's happy he's his usual sunny self, but when the teeth hurt- poor baby! It hurts Mommy to hear him crying in pain when nothing works.

He's had his bottom two teeth for a while now (he usually hides them in pictures, but you can see here), and cutting the top ones for a bit of time. Well, two top teeth broke through yesterday (one of the front ones, one is missing, and then the one next to the gap). He's got 4 more that are going to pop ANY second now. (the second top front one, the one on the other side of the top one that is out, and the one on either side of his two bottom ones).

Teething tablets (and now a teething necklace) are helping, but we've had to do the q-tip orajel a few times too. Frozen mango, frozen washcloths, and lots of snuggle time with Mommy.

Oh, and he learned how to click his teeth. To me it sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard. But to him- it's funny! A new and unusual sound and feeling.

Our baby is getting to be so big!
