Poor Abner. She's going through a lot these days.
For starters, she's finally teething. The first tooth is making it's appearance on the bottom after several weeks of rosy cheeks, less-than-stellar sleeping and more than enough drool to fill an Olympic swimming pool. She's also pretty much gone off solids. In a fit of desperation the other day, I gave her a teething cookie to see if she would like that...I don't think she actually ate any of it, but she sure had fun licking it and making a huge mess.
And in a move that is either sheer genius or pure insanity (I haven't decided which), we've decided that now is the time to start weening her off of her soother. We're still giving it to her at night and for naps, but it stays in her crib the rest of the day. It's absolutely adorable how she kicks her feet in excitement when she finally gets her soother.
Needless to say, there's been A LOT of crying around here lately, but with so much going on, I never know the reason -- could be the teeth, the cold or wanting a hit of soother -- your guess is as good as mine.
