ch ch ch changes
we are in the midst of a new stage. teething. how fun.
i feel so bad for this babe. he's so little to be teething. i totally didn't expect to have such an early teether. at 14 weeks today, wyatt is definitely teething. we kind of had a feeling that maybe something was going down last week in maui. he was all over his hands, and just drooling a ton. it really wasn't enough to know for sure, if anything it was just a gut feeling. a few nights ago, he was so cranky that annie thought maybe giving him a little tylenol would take the edge off and that totally helped. overall, this past few days have not been a blast for little dude man. long flight on tuesday night meant a long night, a cold, a crusted eye that lead to an eye infection and now, new baby teeth. good times. the picture above was taken this morning when nothing, i mean NOTHING, seemed to calm him down. this of course, was BEFORE we realized there may be some new teeth making their way to the surface of our baby's very sensitive baby gums. as i've mentioned previously, white noise is wyatt's bff. it goes a little like this:
step 1 - have a fan going. if that doesn't work...
step 2 - add the sound machine. if that doesn't work...
step 3 - go into bathroom and turn on fan. if that doesn't work...
step 4 - turn on shower.
usually we stop at step 4. today, that didn't work. we actually had to add a new step...
step 5 - get IN shower.
and ta-da! it worked.
until we had to get out of the shower.
step 6 - tylenol.
to add fuel to this scorpio baby's fire, we're trying out the ol' crib tonight. are we idiots!? i just wrote that thinking, holy crap - i am not a smart woman. he's a noisy little sleeper that keeps this mama up a lot even when he's conked out or just squirming around in his bed. i am going to see how it goes with him just a few doors away. perhaps i'll sleep though his normal sleep noises and only wake to the hunger cries [wishful thinking?]. he loves his room. always seems really happy in his crib. stares in amazement at his mobile. loves his music player. i'm staying positive, can you tell?
wish us luck this next week.
we need it.
