Sad sad day...

It all started out fine.
We went to the gym early and came home early afternoon after a quick trip to return some things at Target.  That's when it started.  The sad afternoon filled with crocodile tears.
I can't be entirely certain what was causing the tears...but I'm sure it was a combination of several things:
1. Teething...drooling persisted all afternoon.
2. A certain area (that mommy doesn't know much about) seems to be infected (I called the nurse and we're going into the clinic tomorrow morning)
3. Tired...poor little guy wouldn't take a nap. Every time I thought I had him asleep he'd wake up screaming in pain. He actually wouldn't let me put him down all afternoon.

These are the days where nothing else matters...

Happy moments were very short lived today...showing daddy his new trick standing up holding onto the crib...

...proved to be too much

poor baby.
Who cares that I didn't get anything baby was in pain and all that mattered was comforting him and helping him deal with the pain. I spent the afternoon nursing, rocking, singing lullabyes, interchanging teething toys, frozen washcloths and cold spoons, and wiping away every tear.  Sadly even baby tylenol wasn't any help today...
There is nothing more heartbreaking than seeing your baby in pain and not being able to do anything to help. It's just so hard to watch my usually happy baby so bent out of shape. I haven't seen many tears from G...but today he shed far too many.

Luckily he went to bed easily...and I'm just praying the Tylenol I gave him before bed helps keep him asleep and not feeling the pain.


  1. Oh, poor G and K & J! Those days are rough!!! Hope he feels better in the morning (and you too!)
