Teething = HELL.

So apparently, teething is the worst thing on the face of the earth. Almost nothing makes my baby cry. He is very calm and laid back about pretty much anything. He will whine/cry when he gets hungry or over tired, but that's about it. Well, not so now that he is getting two teeth in on the bottom. He was FREAKING out yesterday. The night before he woke up at 10, 12, 2, 3, 5 then finally 815. Usually he wakes up at 2 or 3, that's it. And of course, it was after a night that we had people over and stayed up super late. Needless to say, I felt like death yesterday. So last night I was cooking dinner and he wakes up after only 30 minutes of a nap, screaming. Of course, it's also the one night that my husband decided to go look at some stupid gun with his friend instead of coming straight home after work.

So I'm trying to cook four cheese baked ziti, while holding a screaming infant. It wasn't pretty. I gave him tylenol, teething tablets, put his baltic amber teething necklace on that just came yesterday in the mail, shoved a frozen wash cloth into his mouth... still crying. Luckily my husband came home and I fed him and he was able to get the food out of the oven when the timer went off. He was okay the rest of the night and luckily slept from 730-230 at which time I fed him again and gave him some more tylenol and teething tablets, then back to sleep until 715. He's much happier today! But usually he doesn't get angry until later, so we'll see how he is tonight. You can tell he's MUCH happier today from the picture :)

In other news, yesterday we had a play date at our friend, Missy's, house. We usually all go to the mall play area on Mondays, but it is spring break so we decided that probably wasn't a good idea. So we had everyone bring a healthy snack and went to her house. The kids all had a lot of fun, and I brought a bunch of cloth diapers for my friend Anita to try out. I think so far I've already gotten 3 more people into cloth diapering, maybe more! Our new alva diapers came the other day, but I'll post that in a separate post later on. Tonight I'm going to a group of babywearing mom's and hopefully learning how to use my wrap on my back, because I SUCK. I can't even get him on my back to start the whole thing off, so hopefully I figure it out later. A lot of other ladies want to try out my wrap as well, but I'll also save that for another post as I just realized I haven't posted about babywearing OR cloth diapering yet! Tomorrow my friend who is training to become a Doula is using Boston as her test subject for baby yoga and baby massage. It's going to be so much fun!
