Teething, Aughhh!!!

Today, was going well, until this afternoon Tai went into a crying rampage (a first for him). I thought he was overly tired, which probably just added to the dilemma, but I guess it is also about that time for him to be popping some teeth. He kept gagging on his hand because he was gnawing on it so hard and flicking his tongue off his gums. After none of that sufficed him, it started. He cried and cried and cried. I tried nursing him, putting his pacifier in, let him suck on a wet rag, finally we took a bath because he loves that and that calmed him down. His poor face was red and splotchy from crying so hard, poor thing. After the bath and while getting him dressed he started all over again. In a panic, I got the Infants Tylenol out to give to him. It has been so long since I have had to use this. Question. Why on the box do they put "Infant Tylenol" and then in a little bubble they put for 2-3 year olds. I don't remember calling my 2 year old an infant anymore. The dosage didn't show what I should give him because he was under 24 lbs. Thank goodness for Amanda, who I called to think for me (it is so hard to think with a screaming baby). She set me straight. I gave Tai the medicine and hoped for the best, if anything I knew it would make him sleep. Finally, I got him to sleep and not 20 minutes later was he up again. Then I remembered how this exact same thing happened to Kalea with her first couple teeth and how we used Baby Orajel. Didn't have Baby Orajel just regular, ran and got it, rubbed it on his gums and he was out a second later. Hallelujah! I am exhausted!

My Boys!

Tai is 4 months already. He is growing so fast and has fattened right up. I love it! He is such a happy, easy baby, although he does drool an unusually large amount and spits up, which Kalea never did. He looks just like Kalea in her baby pictures, but is also a spitting image of his dad, which Danny loves. All of us are just so enamored with him and glad he made us a family of 4 going into 2008!

You Are a Strawberry

You are friendly, outgoing, and well liked by many people.

You are popular, but there's nothing you ordinary or average about you.

You a very interesting person, and you have many facets to your personality.

Sometimes you feel very conflicted. Your different sides of your personality pull at you.

You are a very sensual and passionate person. You are fiery... you can't help it.

In general, you keep your passionate side under wraps. You are only wild in private.

Love the BUMBO...

So we just purchased a "Bumbo" for Tai (among all the other baby paraphernalia we have accumulated) and love it. He looks so cute and you can tell he feels like a "bigger boy" being able to sit up. Funny thing, Kalea fits in it too. She uses it as her seat in front of the tv. Such a funny looking thing, but neat anyhow.
