Believe it or not, my baby, who will be 3 months old in 2 days, has cut her first tooth! She has been drooly for a few weeks, not excessive, but noticeable. Last night she slept terribly, had to have my nipple in her mouth the entire night, which didn't really work very well for me. Today she hasn't really been very smiley, and cried some in the car, but I wouldn't go so far as to call her fussy, just less happy than normal. She is such a good natured baby. She has chewed on her hands most franctically today and wanted to nurse nonstop, in a kind of "chewy" way that has left me with sore nipples. So I looked at her bottom gums, and there it is, a fine white line. All my kids have teethed early, especially the girls. She's not the first 3 monther. But still, I am sad--I love that toothless smile. Where is my little baby going? Glad I had her picture taken this week to preserve that toothless grin.
