I am happy to report that we finally got a break in the teething process Friday when Katie's pain seemed to subside a little and we got our normal, happy girl back (at least for now). Earlier this week we had a very fussy, grumpy, unhappy Lil Miss who was never really content. I would be playing with her and she would all of a sudden start crying and want to be held. Then I would be holding her and within a few minutes she would start fussing again and want down. Sometimes she would just wonder around the house crying and nothing I did seemed to help. I felt so bad for her and even after trying a variety of teething remedies, nothing really seemed to bring her comfort. Even at night she was waking up every couple hours until I gave her Motrin and then she would sleep for 5-6 hours. Needless to say by the end of the week this was one tired mommy who felt like nothing I did was helping. Luckily on Friday I got an e-mail from Sharry with a picture of my little girl who was happy even with a large amount of drool coming out of her mouth.
Yesterday she was back to her old self but still only has one little tooth poking out, at least that I can feel. I am hoping she is getting more than one though because if the past 5 days of pain was only due to one tooth, this is going to be a very long process.
Here are a couple more pictures from this past week.
