All Hail the Tooth!

well, it's been a while since i've posted, mainly because this is week 3 of the continuing Sick Children Saga. it started 2 weeks ago with daniel running a high fever, followed by nicholas in "the fever, part two" (and not to be outdone by his brother, a hefty cold to go with it) and seems to be petering out this week with jonathan sporting the same fever, and a wicked cough to boot.

however, we realized one other reason for jonathan's miserable and pitiful demeanor, and that is that he has finally cut his first tooth! which, as anyone who remembers (or has children who do), this is a very painful process. hence the constant crying and need to be held. he seems to be much better today, almost back to his smiley self. now, if he would just choose to have his fever spike at some time other than the middle of the night, maybe we could all get some sleep....

hopefully, pictures to follow soon...

ahhh, sickness and teeth. I sympathize with your household situation. My boys are just now getting over their "post-travel" flu bugs.

I hate it when the baby is upset and clingy and hot, but I can't quite figure out what's going on. Then three days later I realize he was teething. I always feel like I should have known. I am the mom. I have read books on this. But it's a whole different situation when you're taking care of babies and a house and a husband and brothers...

Hope everyone gets better soon!

i hope a dose of vitamin D the past few days has helped your boys to feel better :-)

We had about a two week or so hiatus from crabby baby -- it looks like it's starting all over with tooth #2! Hopefully Jonathan has the sense to get them all at once ;-)
