seventeen. weeks. old.
it's been quite a different experience with this little lady let me tell ya. those little bottom teeth are really giving her a run for her money. she is sad and irritable a lot of the time. poor thing just doesn't know how to handle the pain of new teeth cutting through her little gums. it's been rough to say the least. she's been waking several times a night for the past couple of weeks and gets very uncomfortable throughout the day. she's kind of over her swing and other 'baby entertainer' toys at the moment and prefers to be held or sitting on someones lap. it's funny because when she get's really upset and we can't calm her down there is one thing that will, no fail, every time and that's this kipper the dog video. she loves it and spends a few times a day watching with mamas or papas on the laptop. we received a beautiful honey amber teething necklace and bracelet from tweet baby designs and it has been a major help. the amber is said to reduce inflammation and has analgesic properties which relieve her pain naturally. life has been a lot better since those arrived in the mail and for times when she's highly uncomfortable we bought humphrey's 100% all natural teething relief strips. these work pretty well too. teething is rough for babies and for the parents too. i have been getting very little sleep these days. that's no good because if i don't sleep i'm kind of a demon woman. haha. luckily papas has been here to help me out. i am pretty nervous because he is leaving on a business trip later this week and it will be all up to me to hold down the fort again and this time with a teething baby. yikes! but i'm sure i'll do fine. all i need is patience and wine. haha.
other than that she has been a dear. when she's not in pain and crying she is just as sweet and smiley as can be. we just need to get this little tooth to come through. some exciting news... little gemma bird had her very first taste of baby food. we gave her apples the other day and she loved them. she's getting so big so fast. i am already having tiny baby withdrawals and planning the next addition to our little family.
wish me luck this week. xo!
