Daphne has been incredibly grumpy this week. At the beginning of the week, I assumed it was a result of having shots on Monday. By last night I knew that was not the case. Of course, I’m hoping this is not some crazy crying/fussing phase we are going through. She is really pretty happy most of the day, but 4:00 p.m. hits and WATCH OUT! She cries if she is held, she cries if she is put down, she cries in the bouncy seat, she cries in the car seat – you get the picture.
So I met my sister for dinner last night – I had Daphne with me. She fussed/cried the whole time!! Seriously. My sister asked if maybe she is getting teeth. I’m thinking to myself, “There is no way this 4 month old is getting teeth already.” We take a peek, and sure enough, there are 2 little bumps with a little white barely showing on her bottom gums.
Norah’s first 2 teeth came in when she was about 5 1/2 months. Lucy was closer to 7 months. 4 months – that seems incredibly early. Maybe they won’t actually poke through for a little while – wait a minute, what am I thinking? The sooner the better, right? Then maybe Daphne will get over this fussiness!!
