I keep starting this entry, only to stop because of the cryyyyyyyyyyyying. I don’t know how such a little thing doesn’t just pass out from sheer exhaustion! I know I am practically falling over.
Any.Way. WOW! I was so excited to hear from so many of you. I loved finding out who reads about our little family, and when you leave a link to your own blogs, I get really happy! Thanks for all the advice, for realz. I read each one as they came in, since Mike and I were awake with Maddie pretty much all night. I seriously went out and bought EVERYTHING you all suggested. Yes, even the rum, although the only mouth rum is going into is mine. We’ve constructed an elaborate rating system, and we will post the results tomorrow.
Maddie also had another appointment today with Dr. Lung. That lady is six kinds of crazy. Everything went well, but it wouldn’t be an appointment with Dr. Lung if it didn’t leave me screaming, “NO! UNACCEPTABLE!” into the phone.
Okay, I give up. The crying has made this entry total crap. I hate to be all Ryan Seacrest in this joint, but really, tomorrow I will fill you all in on the teething remedies and the appointment with Dr. Lung.
I will end with some pictures that pretty much sum up the day. Before I had time to make it to the store to buy your teething remedies, we discovered that Maddie calmed down when we put her in her stroller. If she cried, we’d just roll it across the room (usually gently, which I thought showed remarkable restraint) and she’d settle down.
This is the first time we put her in the stroller. She calmed immediately. It was like freaking MAGIC.
Red Alert! The stroller isn’t moving! Red Alert! The stroller isn’t moving!
MOM WHY ARE YOU TAKING MY PICTURE WHEN I AM OBVIOUSLY IN PAIN! STOP TAKING PICTURES AND COMFORT ME! MOM!
