oh it's that wonderful time again (heavy on the sarcasm here)...teething.

lets just put it out there teething, i hate you. hate you.

you make my boy miserable and you test my patience to the point where i need to have a word with myself before i turn into a crying mess too. we've had two straight days of caleb whining. whining because he's confused and in pain, but my god is that whining like nails against a chalkboard. and breathe. 

as teething took its toll this afternoon and we'd exhausted every teething medicine and trick going, it was time for a team cuddle on the couch. i think we both needed that cuddle. just like when he was a tiny baby he fell asleep on my chest. my baby. 

so come on teething lets be having you. cut the teeth and get the hell out of here. i want my boy back. feel free to leave his cuddlier side here though.

oh and a little teething helper that's been a hit with caleb (and his mama), frozen blueberries.

  1. Hey have you tried the Baltic Amber necklaces? I've seriously heard nothing but AMAZING things. You should try them! They sell them on Etsy!

    1. hey cara, we have actually and i can't say for sure that it helped. in saying that though i'd totally forgotten about it and haven't used it for this bout of teething. going to dig it out, it certainly can't harm.
      thanks for reminding me cara! :)
