Poor Mr. Malachi is teething right now. One tooth would be bad enough, but (get this) he is working on 6, yes 6 teeth at the moment. All four eye teeth and his bottom molars. He is so grumpy and throwing temper tantrums like crazy and it is so hard to want to discipline him because I know that he is frustrated because his mouth hurts so much. He has only recently started throwing tantrums, mainly when he is tired and only once or twice. But the last couple of days have been on and off all day long...throwing himself on the ground and then rolling all around, hitting, kicking, and screaming--the works! Ignoring him for just a bit or getting him interested in something else usually work, but a couple times, we have had to just let him go at it for a few minutes to get it out of his system. The only good thing about this is that he wears himself out so that he falls asleep early and sleeps hard. Tylenol has helped keep the edge off of things, but he isn't really interested in chewing on anything cold. We tried the teething tablets when he was getting his littler teeth and they didn't make a difference, although, he didn't hardly react to the pain of getting them. Does anyone have experience with something else that might help?? Any suggestions are welcomed. We are off to a BBQ a little later at my parent's house, so I hope that things go OK. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
Welcome to our little cyber-spot! Our sweet family has been split in two...four of us walk together here on earth, while 3 of our sweet babies are snuggling with our Savior. Natalie was born on March 14 and met Jesus on March 16, 2006. Her little brother, Malachi, joined us in May 2007. Our second daughter, Sapphira arrived in April 2009. Our precious 4th child, whom we named Asher, met Jesus in Febuary 2011. Our 5th sweet baby, Azra, joined her siblings in Heaven in August 2011. Baby Amira is due to arrive in March 2013. A very patient dog and a cat round out our crew. Thanks for spending time with us!
