Teething Sucks!

I've said again and again that Sean is a very happy baby. I'm lucky to have such an easy going baby. However, teething sucks no matter what your baby's personality. Sean has been "teething" for half his life now, and he has NOTHING to show for it. The poor little guy still doesn't have any teeth. At his 6 month well baby visit the nurse commented that she could see that the two front bottom teeth were "right there". Yeah, that's what we thought too, but lo and behold the kid still doesn't have teeth.

Right now Sean's teething is stressing me out. Sean will not eat. He is refusing baby food. He isn't ready for real finger foods, and the only food he'll seem to eat is puffs and yogurt melts. Great, because that makes a nutritious meal, right? GRRR. Add the not eating to him being difficult about nursing and you have a mom that starts getting annoyed too. Sean will be really tired and cranky, but when I attempt to nurse him he refuses. He doesn't want to be held, he doesn't want to roll around on the floor, he just doesn't seem to want anything....except maybe TEETH!

I'm really hoping that the teeth cut soon. I know that teething is a temporary disruption, but when it is happening it feels like it will last forever. It is hard for me to not get frustrated when I feel so helpless. I want my happy and easy going baby back.

I wish I could offer some sound wisdom...but I'm still waiting for Micah's first tooth and he'll be a year old next month :( Our doctor said if he doesn't have teeth by 2 then they'll start to worry! Two! Really!?!?!? Good luck! I hope things start looking up for poor Sean! (And poor mommy!)
