I Tought I Taw a TootSunday, April 09, 2006
I did! I did tee a toot!
My darling little Madeleine has finally cut a tooth. Well, not a whole tooth, but the beginning of a tooth. Well, not a tooth, but two teeth. They have cut through the surface of her lower gums and even though I'm not thrilled at the thought of breastfeeding, I'm still very excited. She has probably had teething discomfort from the age of about 3 months now, so that's almost 6 months of constant drooling and gnawing on anything she can get her hands on, including my you-know-what. Anyway, I'm happy that we're on with the show!
On a sidebar, Madeleine didn't have a poopy diaper since yesterday morning and that was very unusual. Today she was having severe pain and I could see her face go red as she pushed with all her might. I've never seen her in so much pain before and her cry, though not piercing, was heart wrenching. She had a number of bouts of pushing followed by pain and crying until she finally succeeded in expelling the nasty culprit. Who knew constipation could be so brutally agonizing?
Thankfully, she went to sleep without much ado. Now I get to tinker around on our new iMac! Woohoo!
