Camera zooms into walkway along river. Sweeps along and reached long apartment building. Sweep and zoom into 3rd floor apartment.
Man sits in living room with shotgun in mouth. Camera rests on him.
Man sees “audience”. Removes shotgun and gives big smile. Waves.)
Oh hi folks! Sorry, you caught me in the middle of something. Well shucks, as long as you’re here might as well tell you the news. It looks like the little one has started teething.
Yeah, he was sleeping better, longer, crying less. We were staring to get sleep again. Mm, sleep. It was so nice. Sooo….. very….. nice…..
Yeah, that’s all over now.
Teething. Just when you were beginning to think about sleeping through the night… bend over and grab your ankles.
It started when he started drooling BIG time. First sign. Then came the days of HIGH irritation, fussiness and neediness. And then came the nights where he will not sleep more than 2 hours and i’m picking him up all night long.
Now granted, this comes and goes. He gets a teething spell that lasts about 3 days, then it kind of goes away. When he’s having a spell he LOVES to chomp on stuff, particularly a finger that’s been under cold water or a bib that’s been wet and put in the freezer. This and a pacifier dunked in chamomile are the things that will really relieve him.
So, welcome back sleepless nights.
In an effort to catch up with pictures of his current development, i’m posting some more, general spring photos from his 5th month. We’ll be onto current photos in the next day or 2.
