See Ma? Teething!

I set him down for a second to grab some folded towels and returned to him staring at me with a desperate expression doing what I can only logically conclude is a very earnest dental exam with my reading light to prove he in fact teething and to please please please not do cry-it-out. [Or to prove he is not teething and will infact grow these phantom teeth we keep waiting for when he's seventeen years old and not a moment before. Could go either way really.]

In other news, the sleeping thing is improving- a lot. Will update the how and the why as soon as I'm certain this is not a passing fad but a really truly sticky situation! [fingers, toes, eyes, crossed that it is!]

aisha he is so adorable, seriously. a few weeks ago louise was on the other side of the couch where i couldn't see her, she started crying and i walked over to find her on her hands and knees chewing on the little metal thing you use to open and close the heat vent, i can imagine it didn't feel very good!

What a hilarious photo. He's too cute MashAllah! Glad to hear things are going well. Will keep my fingers (and toes) crossed for you as well.

Cute! Glad there's improvement! I hope it keeps going well!!! :)

Yay for sleep! Going better for us as well, though still teething. He's been waking only twice a night (aside from a few cries here and there that are easiliy self-settled) and it's been a huge improvement.

I have that same booklight!!! Been taking advantage of our cosleeping status and just reading in the dark with that after bedtime. (Still can't get our guy in the crib). *sigh*

And YES to a play date. Would the 19th or 20th work for you??

Oh my goodness - ADORABLE!!! So glad the sleeping is going better, and here's hoping that teething will be less traumatic than all this baby-anguish leading UP to teething!

@Anon Thanks :)

Kate, I just shared that story with my hubby! OUCH! He is also fascinated with the same thing! What is the deal? I call him my little catfish- he's a scavenger!

Thanks Jamila and Banshee for your fingers crossed along with me ont his sleep thing- he's sick again at the moment so things have been rocky- but hopefully resume back to normal once he's better.

'Murgdan' I read somewhere that sleep habits kind of "self correct" around this age- I wonder, since Gabriel is doing the same, if this is all this is. I am out of town that weekend, but am game before or after? I'll shoot you an e-mail.

Susan, thank you :) I hope so!!!

A, thank you so much- Ameen. :)

we call louise our little woodchuck, she is constantly nibbling on the coffee table, her crib, books, the windowsill of the front door, cardboard boxes, etc.

Sleeping is highly underrated. When there isn't enough, you're desperate for more.

Aisha said...

Anon- lol thanks

Pilgrimchick- exactly! never appreciated it quite so much until now!

He is so cute! I love the expression in his eyes...yes, it seems that he is imploring you to not use CIO! Sounds like maybe you won't have to!
