two more teeth

We broke new ground, er, new gums over the weekend.... Baby T has two more teeth poppin' through his swollen, tender little gums.  He got his bottom two front teeth when he was about 4 1/2 months old so I thought by 6 months he'd be getting the top two.  Nope, they took their sweet time and now I must say, I'm glad they did.  He's not lovin' the new teeth so far.

He seems to do better during the day, but he's still a little clingier and hard to please.  He won't sit and be entertained by things for as long as he could before.  There's a lot going on in that little mind of his though - he's really trying hard to crawl.  He gets in the perfect position and rocks back and forth a few times, then PLOP.  He'll get there and honestly, I'm in no hurry.  Well, I'm excited for the accomplishment on his part and definitely want to witness the first successful moves, but aside from that, I know our lives are going to change.  Just in time for getting the ol' Christmas tree out too.  Not sure how we're going to navigate that catastrophe in the making.

And I thought the cats were tricky at Christmas time.

Wow, I'm all over the place...back to the teeth - last night he was grumpy and didn't want to be put down at all but he did fall asleep in my arms around 8 o'clock.  The night before, it was bloody murder in his bed, bloody murder in my arms, just bloody murder no matter what.  I remember when the bottom two came in, this only lasted for maybe a week tops.  Hopefully we are halfway through and he'll be good by the weekend because my mama's coming to town!  And she's bringing my niece and nephew.  I haven't seen the little ones for 3 months and I can't wait!  (I haven't seen mama in over 2 months so I'm equally as excited to see her...she just doesn't change quite as much as the little squirts do between visits).

Just wait til they see Theo, if they want to see someone who has been doing a lot of changing! 

Fun times ahead.  :)

Have a happy day!
