Teething

For the last few days, Cecilia has been super cranky. OK, well, super cranky for Cecilia. She's such a good-natured baby that her version of super cranky is pretty tame, but it's still obvious to me that she's been out of sorts, and in pain.

With her first 4 teeth, all on the bottom, she had basically no symptoms except excess drool and more poop. But I think her newest tooth, which is the top front left one, is bugging her. I have heard from other mothers that the top teeth did bother their babies more than the bottom, and I will admit that when I get dental work, the top teeth always hurt more than the bottom ones do. Thankfully, the tooth seems to be through the surface, although it hasn't descended at all yet. But I can really feel the ridge of it not as opposed to just seeing swelling. Interestingly, there is little sign of the right front one coming in with its neighbor.

So I guess all my baby wants for Christmas is her two front teeth. :)

  1. Poor Cece :( I hope it comes all the way through soon. With Logan there was quite a gap between the right and left ones coming through.

    My Grandad used to sing that song to me when I was little, thanks for making me smile xx
