What is going on behind the scenes.

It is front and center for us. We are exhausted. I lay in bed and wonder if she's crying or if it's just still in my ears from hearing it for most of the day.

For the past few days Sophia has been a different baby. A totally different temperament. We've come to think that she must be teething. We can't think of anything else. But we can't see anything. Not that she'd really let us, the moment we get anywhere near her mouth she moves, she chews, she sticks out her tongue. She doesn't want us to know.

It's hard on the heart, nerves and ears to hear wee little screams Yesterday I broke down and cried with her. What else could I do? I cuddle with her as much as she will let me, and try to help her feel better.

It's heartbreaking right? Little pieces? Tiny little pieces on the floor. If you could hear'd be paralyzed by it. Crushing.

We've tried tablets, tylenol, teethers, motrin, and gel (Not all together). We're working on the right combo to help her feel her best. If these teeth would just come on out!!

[why do her eyes look cross eyed here???]


  1. I feel you! I hope you have your happy baby back soon. God, the pic of her crying is heartbreaking.
    Have you heard of the amber teething necklaces? I bought one for Tyler too and think it helps.
    Good luck!

  2. I'm with the previous commenter, the picture of her crying makes me want to swoop her up & cuddle her!
    I want to cuddle you, too! :) When Jake has one of those weeks where he's crying all the time, it's SO HARD. But, don't forget, it's THE BEST when they show their first signs of normalcy! :)

  3. I feel ya...Ryann kept Lindsey up all night last night screaming. ...and as soon as the first one is over, not to worry, 19 more are waiting on the tailcoats ::sarcasm::
