went to bed last night and fell asleep around 8:30 (nothing out of the
ordinary). However, she woke up at
10:00 and did not go back to sleep again until 1:30! Anyway, neither of us thought of teeth
during this time. Usually there is a
lot of finger biting and mouth grabbing, ear pulling, etc. when it’s her
teeth. There was none of that. Instead she kicked a lot, did Elvis pelvic
thrusts and babbled happily to herself. She also practiced clapping, conducted an invisible orchestra with her
hands and tried to pry my eyelids open with her finger. Fun times.
But now I feel horrible because this morning at breakfast I noticed it – a molar on her bottom right. A MOLAR! She skipped the pointy canine, eye-teeth and went straight to the molars! It looks bad too - it’s all swollen and really red, almost bloody looking, with a jagged little tooth poking through. Poor girl. In a related story, Daddy and I are sooooo tired today.
