Only 2 more weeks....

'til I get to be home with my little man 24/7 for 10 weeks! We don't have much planned for the summer other than a few trips to Grandma and Grandiddy's beach house and hopefully a day or two at the park or zoo. I'm sure we can come up with some way to fill our endless hours *sigh*:)

Well in a week our little man will be another month how the time flies. He wore his very 1st 9 mo. outfit today and btw, if any parents are reading this since I constantly need a reminder of these things, Circo runs kinda small and the 9 mo. pair of shorts he had on today are probably more like 6 mo. I'll have to remember to mark them as so when I pack them away. Today we had a few friends over for a cookout and although Gage had the most appropriate shirt for a day with Daddy, I forgot to take any pictures of the 2 of them because he was so cranky. Here are a few though of him showing off his shirt and when all else failed, me singing "The Wheels on the Bus" to him b/c that's the only thing that would soothe his fussiness today.

So yesterday, as I have done many times before SWORE that Gage was teething. This time I think it's for real. He used to drool, but now you can actually see a puddle forming in his bottom lip before it runs down his face or his chin. He hasn't eaten well in the last few days. He is biting everything he can get his hands on and not in the same way as before but more in a way that he is trying to gnaw it apart. (see Exhibit A) Yesterday he bit his finger for so long that it was swollen when he took it out of his mouth. Finally, the most significant difference is his temperament. As I have said over fifty times, we REALLY do have the most laid back baby in the world and he is NEVER cranky. Yesterday I took him to the pool and he wasn't happy, he hardly napped, he hardly ate and this continued for most of the afternoon. He was asleep before 7pm and he got up about 2 hours early today. Although he napped better today and had a period of about 1.5 hours that he was enjoying company, all of the same things were true today as yesterday. Finally, singing to him was the only way to soothe him. Tonight he was asleep before 630pm....does teething make a baby tired too? (See Exhibit B.) Or maybe pain just makes you want to sleep? who knows? I just know that if he's not teething, then something else is going on, or our worst nightmare is coming true and we no longer have the most perfect baby in the world.

Also, in a moment of peace last night, Gage cuddled Mr. Foot as we read before bed.

Finally, my new favorite picture of the week!

I'm with you on the teething pains (for Mommys and babies)! It's seems like Bryce has been teething forever...BUT we can finally feel a prominent hard bump!

ha...I'm beginning to think I don't know what a hard bump really is...I swear I feel one, but what the heck do I know? I'm new at this. Do you SEE anything?

I'm now following you back!

Sorry I must've forgotten to click follow when I came to your page. I commented so in my mind I linked that to following you too.

And when it comes to teething, you won't ever be 100% sure until you see that tiny little white dot poking out of their gums. I didn't even know Ava was getting a tooth till someone else pointed it out to me. Shows how much I pay attention.

BTW, I see you got your signature at the bottom. YAY!
