I wish there was something we could do to help your pain now, but mom and dad know that we can’t do anything since you aren’t sick. You’re teething!
We’ve been wondering it all along how soon will your teeth come in. Now, we have proof that you are. We see that white mound on your bottom gum! It is exciting for both of us… probably not so much for you now.
I’m sure you are wondering what mom and dad are doing when we look into your mouth, pull your lip down, and move your tongue. Well, we are looking at your little tooth that is trying to poke through. When we see it we are so excited that we clap with excitement. I’m sure that adds to you wondering what is going on. Someday when you are reading this blog you will realize what we were doing when you were seven months old.
We hate to see you in the pain that you are in. You can barely sleep but for more than an hour. Dr. J told us to leave out the baby orajel and then we realized what it could lead to and we threw it out immediately. Dr. J even called it and said you were teething, without even seeing you in person!!! We thought you were getting another ear infection while on medication for a previous infection and so mom called him and asked. He said you were just teething!!! Sure enough you were! For future reference you won’t be able to get anything by Dr. J… he knows everything.
Anyways, in a few days you will get to see Aunt Amy, who is coming home from Russia to live with us for a month and a half before heading back to Russia. She is really excited to see you and every time we mention her name to you, you get a huge smile on your face. You recognized her the last we Skype’d with her and you were laughing and having fun with her.
You are growing so fast… before we know it you’ll be walking and then we will all be in trouble!
