New tooth

Sylvia has another new tooth--this one on top. The running nose, low-grade fever, and loss of ability to sleep through the night all make sense now, as does the unfortunate resumption of Sylvia's bad habit of biting. Ouch!

  1. You gotta love biting. Plugging Aubree's nose always got her to stop but I don't know if I ever figured out a good method for Sabrina. Amazing how quickly I forget these things.

  2. Eddie already bites me with his gums and that is bad enough. Can't wait for those teeth...

  3. Plugging teeth sounds like a good idea. I've been flicking her cheek with my finger, but I'm such a softie I don't think I really hurt her. When I do it hard she looks mighty offended, though!

  4. Julian went through a phase where he bit me on and off for a week, when he was 2 months old. I pushed his face into my breast, which forced him to open his mouth, and he got the point without ever getting upset. He hasn't really bitten me since, even with his new teeth. Thank goodness, as my fingers HAVE been bitten a few times, and those things are SHARP.
