8 Months, 27 Days-- little bitty tooth

I know we've cried wolf many, many times before, but i'm pretty sure this time Henry really is getting his first tooth. It all makes sense now. Two days ago he was out of the blue having a hard time falling asleep and waking up more frequently and unhappy. He just seemed uncomfortable and we assumed it was because of his stuffy nose.

Today when i picked him up, Brenda said he had a tooth. At first i didn't think much of it because she's been caught in the "must be teething" trap with us before. She said that she kept feeling resistance on the spoon when she was feeding him and that he was getting a tooth. He wouldn't let us look at it tonight so i didn't get visual confirmation but i did get my finger in there and there is something sharp (not just hard gums which is what i've felt before) in the bottom middle. Hopefully we'll have some kind of pictoral evidence down the road, but for now you have to take my word for it.

Awhhh, how sweet. Now that I'm reminded, the resistance on the spoon while eating sounds very familiar, though distant. Good job, Henry! Love, Oma

yay! I never did this with Carys but I might with Helen. Remember the frozen bagel is supposed to make a great teething ring.
