the final canine has appeared

So last night as Lilah is crying on and off every few hours, I think to myself, it must be the side effects of the two immunizations she got earlier in the day. How come the doctor or nurse never mentioned it? Then this morning at breakfast I notice a little bit of dried blood on her lips. Hmmm. Take a look inside her mouth, sure enough, the second bottom canine has made its appearance. Poor girly, if I'd known I could at least have given her some pain relief. Oh the joys of being a new naive mother. She's napping now, at 9am, not normal but totally necessary! I think I might even join her.

Refrigerated grapes and ice-cream are the ingredients to making a girl with sore teeth and gums happy! Along with pureed chicken noodle soup that you can drink out of a cup with a straw. Oh it's the little things in life that make her happy! We went for a stroller ride to the mall when she woke up, that's when I got her first smile, she loves to be outside! Then in the mall we stopped by Laura Secord and got a vanilla ice-cream, she would take a bite, look at me, nod her head once and say 'mmm'. What a sweet girl!


  1. So sorry I haven't commented in a while.

    Teething..... oh my... I think we had a party the day that the last tooth came in!!!

    Hope you enjoyed a little nap!!!!!

    You are not a naive mother at all!!!!

    Blessings to you and your beautiful family!

  2. Jill, I'm just catching up. Been so busy paperchasing these days that I can't wait to be done. Sorry to hear about sweet Lilah's aches and pains. Oh my. And you are not naive mommy. Hey, you spotted the blood! You become more oblivious to things like that the more children you have. So, high 5 to you for noticing and tending to your little sweetie pie! She's adorable. I enjoyed all your Ireland pictures too. So many great photos and she's just gets more beautiful!

  3. It is never easy for any parent to tell what is causing our little ones pain, if only they could tell us it would be so much easier lol. But lots of TLC from a caring, attentive mommy makes it all better as things worked out today :)
