Another week with Vivian has brought the joys of teething. We've been wondering if it's been happening for some time, but now it seems it's really here.
She's drooly, she sucks her fingers, she sucks her lip, she's crying in her sleep, she has rosy cheeks, her nose is running, she's whiny and crabby...it's pretty awesome.
I suppose it had to happen sometime. I feel like this might continue for a long time before she actually cuts any teeth though.
To help her out, I have her wearing amber teething jewellery. She wears an anklet at night and a necklace during the day. They say that they really help with teething, so we'll see. I figure it's a better option than just pumping her full of Advil and Tylenol all day. (Although we do have both on hand, don't get me wrong.)
In other Vivian news, she's become insanely wiggly. I put her down in her crib for her nap, and when I go back to get her when she wakes up, she's wiggled her way over to the opposite end of the crib and is usually stuck with her legs between the bars or something. I've even caught her playing on the floor and getting her knees up under herself already. I'm in no mood for her to start crawling early, but it looks like it might happen. Blair was crawling at 6 months, so we'll see how it goes. It's not a race though, Vivian.
