I feel that the week can best be summed up by this particular look on The Cupcake’s face.
Q. How’s Lila currently doing?
A. SO much better. She’s stopped sleeping in her stroller and has transitioned back into her crib. (Yesss…) And, no more fever!
Q. What IS the current tooth situation?
A. When her bottom teeth came in, Lila was mildly moody. With these top ones Lila clearly been in much more “discomfort.” Seriously, though? Let’s call it what it is: PAIN. Can you imagine feeling your teeth rip through your gums? Slowly? At a turtle’s pace? Oy. Poor baby.
She stopped eating for a day or so. And, she lost half a pound. I cried. (She’s eating again. I’ve stopped crying. Tee hee.)
And still – NO TEETH have actually come through. Her little gums are still swollen, though. Eek.
Q. What ended up helping Lila?
A. Um, after we tried ALL the homeopathic, non-drug solutions we kept her on a constant I.V. of alternating tylenol and motrin. It worked. She’s been drug free for about 3 days now and she’s giggly again. YES!
Q. How’s eating going?
A. Really well! Miss Lila LOVES solid food. This week she met green beans, papaya, yogurt and tofu. She liked them all, but she really, REALLY likes tofu.
Q. Is Lila walking yet?
A. Nope. She’s quite adept at crawling, if I don’t say so myself. (As if I had some part in her crawling.) I think that since she gets around so well crawling she’s really in no hurry to walk. (I’m more than ok with this.)
Ok, on to the pictures this week. (We didn’t take too many. It just sort of felt inappropriate to exploit my daughter’s teething pain. 🙂 But still… I snuck in a few pics. I mean, I had to.)
