Teething

Happy Friday! Nora has been teething this week and I have been getting a lot of this face.  :( I know mega frown face and this face is usually accompanied by her howl.  Being a first time parent- I didn't realize how painful teething was and all of the symptoms than go along with teething like fevers and rashes just to name a few. She has been requesting lots of cuddles and story time which she is already turning the pages of books and her hugs are so big.  She hugs with everything she is and I don't think I will ever get tired of them and hope she never grows out of hugging. She is getting her top 2 teeth and they are going to cut any day now but little baby is grouchy.  We have tried a variety of techniques to sooth her but her favorite thing is too chew on her tooth brush.  I think she likes the bristles of the brush up against her gums.  So hopefully those teeth will come out over the weekend.

This weekend is a busy one- with lots of catching up with old friends and baby birthday parties hopefully little baby's frown will turn upside down. lol  What are you up to this weekend?

Ohh poor lamb, I remember these days, not happy times. I hope she gets through them ok. Some popsicles could help, thankfully it being summer. Never fun. Have a wonderful weekend doll x

I'm sure you will get lots of advice with teething, but just in case you haven't tried them I had some (some) success with Hyland's Homeopathic Teething Tablets. Found in the natural area of the grocery store. They even helped me a bit with a dental problem as they slightly numb the area (I was surprised they actually worked when I used them on myself, I was desperate at the time). Good luck!

This doesn't sound pleasant but at least when it's over it's over if that makes sense! Really hope she gets the teeth through as quickly as possible!

Thinking of you and Nora. It is hard, particularly first time round.
