Early bird

Jack woke up at 4am this morning. He remained awake despite a diaper change and 30min. nursing session, so we ventured into the living room where he proceeded to destroy some cassette tapes while I surfed the internet. Yes, we still have cassette tapes. No, we don’t have a tape player. Quit asking so many questions, gosh!

An hour and a half later, Jack was shaking his head back and forth – a sure sign that teething was bothering him (and not a seizure, despite how it looks). I dosed him with Motrin and back to bed we went. After a short nursing session, he hopped out of my lap and plopped face-down on the bed where he immediately fell asleep. Poor kid. I was hoping for a break after the first four teeth made their appearance but it is just not happening.

Joe’s grandmother is in the hospital with pneumonia.  She is in good spirits but not eating, so we are worried.  She has lived a long and full life, but I’m hoping she’s not ready to check out just yet.  I’ve got my fingers crossed for a quick recovery!

To end this post on a positive note, here is a picture of Jack enjoying his first bubble experience on Earth Day (click to make it bigger).

  1. You’ve probably already tried this, but in case you haven’t, there are some homeopathic teething tablets by a (homeopathic) company called Hyland’s. You can pick them up at a drugstore and they really seem to work. Jack seems to be having a harder time of teething than I remember Little Reed having, but it might be worth trying.

  3. Oh yes, we’re on our fourth bottle of those since Jack started teething at 3 months. He’s got the drill down now, too – I bring out the bottle and he opens his mouth and leans forward. It’s kinda freaky. They do seem to help but we still have really tough nights.
