and some steak and potatoes please...

Emaline has been a little cranky lately. My first thought was OH NO not another infection. At Emaline's 6 month check up I asked the doctor about it...no teeth she said (other than the 2 she already has). The check up went on. 20 lbs and above the 97%tile in head (duh) and length as well. I have a big girl. At the zoo yesterday I had a family stop and ask how old she was...6 months I said with a grin, with the pregnant lady only to drop hers and add, oh, she is big! I am glad sweet girl doesn't really know what that means. She is too young to join Curves. Doctor also told me I wasn't feeding her enough solids. Okay. I upped her intake of solids. We switched from rice to oatmeal (to hopefully solve some constipation issues she has had since I weaned the girl). Crankiness has continued. Yesterday at the zoo and at softball games she was not her typical self, although it is becoming pretty routine for her, it isn't her best side. Then I saw it. Tooth number 3! On the bottom. She is starting the Tooth per Month Club if anyone wants to enlist.

I tried to attach a picture...but blogger must be a vegetarian!

Frozen washcloths work good or you can ask your dentist for some topical gel. It works way better than Orajel. She is a super baby!

Another tooth. Teething is so much fun! Hope things clear up and get better for you.
Big babies are sweet and we love her no matter what!!

Teeth are so hard. Poor Emaline. Don't you love when you know something about your child the Dr doesn't. That is why they say mother knows best!

I hate it when people say things like she's a big girl. or use words like fat (that happened with Jack). it's so rude. and teeth can be hard. but it is also exciting!

Yeah Teeth! Perhaps some steak will clear up the constipation issue....

Please tell Matthew. He has become obsessed with the babies in his life getting teeth. However, I believe in his head this means they are ready for him to share his Now and Laters and Dum Dum suckers out of his Clifford Backpack candy stash. Hopefully she won't end up with a tootsie roll in her mouth as a new tooth treat.
