ARG!!!! Teething SUCKS!

I hate it. I hate it. I hate it. Do I need to go any further w/ this? Of course I do b/c otherwise this wouldn't be a blog, tee-hee!

Now, remember that Sofi & Ian have yet to get any "Ikes" so this is all about Gabi. Yesterday was a day from hell. There is no other way to put it b/c it was shear hell. I guess these are the days I have been hearing about. My kids were in a FOUL mood & I couldn't figure out what was going on. My dad suggested that it may be the pears. I thought that was the culprit until today. Gabi wouldn't even let me touch her mouth, especially her upper gums. They are so swollen & white that I know her teeth are about to cut through, it is just a matter of time AND hopefully it will be SOON! Mommy can't take many more days w/o naps or screaming when getting put in the crib. It wears on your nerves like nothing else.

On a brighter note, the kids are doing so many new things. Ianchito is rolling around like a maniac! He LOVES to grab for things & I foresee crawling in the near future for him. Here he is being a crazy boy & going for Checker's tail.

Gabi is sitting up! She surprised us on on Sunday by sitting up w/o support for a good 3 minutes. We were shocked b/c the longest she had gone before that was about 15-30 seconds.

Sofi loves her toes. She can't get enough of them! It doesn't matter that she is eating, she needs to be holding her foot.

Don't laugh too hard! These are the kiddos in the morning now that it is a bit chilly. I bring them to their bouncy chairs & they snuggle w/ their blankies while I finish pumping. Sofi likes to cover her face & we play peek-a-boo.

Gabi was working on keeping her hands warm.

This is Ian trying to get his blankie back from Sofi. Shame on Sofi!

Other than the teething, we are slowly adjusting our schedule for daylight savings time so tonight they got their bottles 15 min later than normal. We will push the last bottle 15 min later until Saturday & by Sunday they won't know the difference! Let's hope it works.

I am dreading teething! I think Jake might be about to start- he is slobbery and cannot stop sucking on things- his hands, his toys, his brother- everything!

I am also dreading daylight savings time! What exactly are you doing?? Call me sometime this week if you can.


BTW- the picture of Ian going after the cat- TOO CUTE!

I love the pics and I hope that 15 min idea works because we are doing it here too! LOL

Those pictures are just precious! I especially love the blanket shots.

I feel your pain on the teething. We just had molars break through here and those are miserable! For the early teething, Hyland's Teething Tablets were an absolute life saver.

Astrid, the kids are gorgeous!!! And I have to say if that is your post triplet body in that picture with Todd by that big stone thing...way to go lady, you don't even look like you had 3 babies. I'm so happy to see that the Bottle Proppers are coming in handy, I know they did for us so I'm just thrilled that you could use them. I hope things continue to go well for your family, your doing great! Jennifer from TC

Jennifer ~ Ahhh...that was my body 2 mths before we got pregnant! I wish! I'm in a 12 right now though & starting to work on the bod again.

Helen ~ I've got the teething tablets & will give them a try!

Andrea said...

I thought this was an interesting story. Reminds me of how well you did with your brood.

Yes, it is amazing! The Phillips are part of the same Higher Order Multiple group that I am...Space City Triplets. God blessed them!
