Bearing Teeth

Today Jonathan brought to my attention that my sweet little baby who will tomorrow turn 4 months has cut his first tooth. This explains the copious amounts of slobber we have recently beheld. It may also explain a few of our sleepless nights of late.

Alas I am hopeful that he will be gentle with these teeth that seem to have come far too early for me. I still have 8 months of nursing ahead of me and he has been known to bite. But I think I said the same of Annie when she got her first tooth at 3 months. I ended up nursing her longer than any of my other kids so I guess it turned out okay.

The other girls got teeth much later. I remember for Sabrina it wasn't until about 8 months. The other two were about 6 months. Still it seems too soon to have a child bearing teeth. Wasn't he just a newborn yesterday?

I see Camille looking at me through Noble's beautiful eyes!

Wow! A tooth already? Yikes!

Hannah didn't cut her first one before 10 months and Lil was 13 months before hers truly came in. Han only bit me once, and thank goodness, Lil never did. Whew!

Good luck!

Geez that's early! My daughter was 6 months but my son was 12 months! Thank goodness, because if he would have been a biter our nursing days would have been short-lived! Good luck!
