two words to describe yesterday : teething baby.
for anyone who doesn’t know much about what that entails (i didn’t. with eleanor we just saw two teeth appear one morning around six months and we were like, oh what? cool! wow! piece of cake, this teething thing!) but in samson’s case, it has basically meant the opposite of that experience.
there was a high fever for almost 24 hours yesterday, with a very very sad but not-at-all cuddly mister samson who was inconsolable for nearly every minute of that time. there was a back rub at 4 in the morning, a few warm baths throughout the night to help calm him and aaaaaaaaalot of bouncing. a few calls with our pediatrician to ensure it was teething and nothing else, a lot of yawning from the rest of us, and a very sleepless night for everyone (possibly the neighbors, too. we’ll be making and delivering a lot of cookies this weekend. but probably dodging eye contact in the halls for a couple more days.)
we’re hoping a few new teeth are going to pop through any moment now (after all that, they’d better pop through!) and i’m so glad someone is back on their way to being their cute smiley self. samson and his sister have been nothing but sweet and cuddly in mama’s bed so far this morning and josh just ran down to the corner store to grab me a hot chocolate! with all the snow falling around us outside, today is already off to a better start than yesterday but just incase, wish us luck!
