And we have a tooth!

A week or so ago, Madeline just stopped what she was doing and let out the loudest, most awful shriek I’ve ever heard. I honestly didn’t think someone so small was capable of producing a noise of that caliber, but apparently something was bothering her enough to unleash it.

I figured she must be cutting a tooth because she’s been drooling like a maniac for about 2 months now and I had my first tooth really early. I was sort of expecting it to happen ‘any day now’ for quite a while.

In the midst of the screaming, I fumbled with the container of Hyland’s teething tablets and managed to get her to take one. I kid you not, these things are tiny, chalky MIRACLES. They’re homeopathic, dissolve SO fast, and work instantly. Poor Madeline immediately calmed down and I was able to feel her gums without causing her more pain.

And, there it was! A sharp, razorlike, dagger of a tooth in my little girl’s mouth. I called Justin in to come see as she chomped down hard on my finger. I swear, baby teeth could be used as weapons.

Crawling is coming soon, and let me tell you, that scares the crap out of me. She needs to stop growing up so fast.

Let the baby-proofing begin…

I just noticed that her foot extends her ear just enough to make her look somewhat like Sloth from Goonies at first glance. Sorry baby. :)

Someone get me a latte.

No seriously. Before I fall over and hit my head and die or something.

Or kill someone else.

Apparently, we are teething now, and I was up with Madeline ALL. NIGHT. LONG.  It seems a bit early for that, don’t you think? My mom said my brother and I were freakish babies and started teething at 3 months!  Tiny babies with teeth… I just don’t know how I feel about that. Kind of scary.

I’m not going to lie, I’m absolutely terrified of tiny razor sharp daggers being aimed at me. I have a feeling this milk factory is going to be shutting down some time in the near future. I’m just not that into the piercing of nipples, just saying. (I promise that’s the last time I mention them.)

I really do feel sorry for the girl… she’s not getting much rest either, poor baby. I realize I totally sound selfish by complaining and sort of feel guilty about it… but good gracious, if I don’t get a good night’s sleep tonight, beware of the beast that will manifest itself within me.

Justin, hide your laptop.
