Conrad started teething around the 3.5 month mark. His hour long wailing sessions every other night, and refusal to eat was starting to make Dustin and I lose our minds, and at one point, I went into see the doctor thinking surely it was a massive ear infection, or some kind of crazy infection, something, just something to explain why my son screams almost nightly and I can't make it better!
It was teething.
She said he was probably just one of those babies that will teeth for a long time, and have trouble with the pain (which, trust me on this people, I have tried everything from Tylenol, Motrin, vanilla extract, ice cubes, frozen mangos, Oregel, teething tablets, frozen wash clothes and everything else under the sun). My doctor said she felt sorry for me, his ears looked fine, and sent my sad soul my way....
BUT.......after lots of sweat, Orajel and tears (mostly our tears, not Conrad's) We finally have teeth!!!
They're still just barely peeking through the gums, but they're there! They're there and Conrad is flossin' his new pearly whites like a badge of honor. And I'm showing them off to everyone who shows the slightest interest. I pried his mouth open today at the store for a granny who stopped us to make goofy faces at him & tell him he was cute. I was all "Well, if you think he's cute, watch this." as I tilted his head back and held his tongue down so she could see those beauties. I'm just so excited that after months of teething-hell, we finally have something to show for it! Talk about overzealous first time mother.
Congrats on your teeny-tiny-sweet little ice caps buddy.
You look like Paul Wall with that grill. So thug.
