Teething

Elias has ten teeth. Eight in the front and two molars on the right side. He has an eleventh coming in…a molar on the left side. It is causing him so much pain! He’s had fussy days while teething or sick in the past…but today is different. Today he’s screaming and crying. I just hate seeing his little face crumple as the tears spill over his plump cheeks. All I can do is hug him and kiss him and sing to him and rock him. His growing body still fits nicely against mine. I scratch his back as his hiccuping sobs wane away. We look at a book (or twenty) as the tears dry. But then a few minutes later it starts all over again. My poor boy…at least he was able to get down for a nap. Let’s hope it lasts a while!
