Okay, so you all know the boy has been fighting a cold right? Well the congestion has pretty much gone away...but the nasty mood and sleeplessness has stuck around. He's just been a little extra spicy these days and waking up a little more often throughout the night. Not hard to get back to sleep, but still...kinda messes with MY whole sleep mojo if you know what I mean.
Well today, my dad came over for dinner (my mom is out of town galivanting with friends) and he was holding Adam in his lap, and I was tickling and making him laugh when I inadvertently got my finger caught in his mouth which he immediately latched onto and started gnawing away. And that's when I felt it...the little ridge of TOOTH sticking out of his bottom gum. DUDE - the boy is not even 5 months old yet and he's already getting a tooth? Is that normal?
He's been cramming anything and everything he can get his hands on into his mouth, so I've been freezing washcloths and teethers like crazy - but everyone has been telling me that's just the way it goes at this age...it doesn't necessarily mean he's actually getting a tooth.
but HELLOOO - there is a tooth in there!
It's allllll making sense now...
