Three in One, Plus Some

Anna is teething. When Sarah got a tooth, she did not sleep well. When David got a tooth, he got a slight fever. When Leah got a tooth, her nose was runny. When Anna gets a tooth: she doesn't sleep well, she gets a fever, her nose runs, she's cranky and she poops a lot. Heavens! Oh, she also begs for soy ice cream. (Have you ever noticed a dog panting, sitting beside the table? Well, this is what Anna does when you get out the ice cream or pour yourself a glass of water. She also waves her arms up and down. So, imagine a dog panting excitedly, bouncing on their hind legs, waving their little front paws, perhaps grunting a bit in their effort to communicate, and that's Anna.)

We've been at this for a month now. The morning of September 13th marked the beginning of the end of my sanity. Well, the whole teething on a plane ride back from my grandma's funeral was when I lost the sane part. Two more teeth appeared on October 1st. Number four arrived on the 11th, and she's showing no signs of stopping folks. I sure am glad they look so darn cute!

Oh, cute pics indeed :-). Reminded me of when Jesse finally got his very LAST baby teeth in.... and I then realized that I could no longer say, "Well, you know, he's been *teething*, after all...." :-)

Hang in there!! :-)
Lots of love,
your mom-in-law

You're doing an AWESOME job! Love these pictures -- of course she's even cuter in person.

Oh, we're going through the same thing! Teething is terrible. Glad to know she's out-fussing the previous kids! She's an overachiever! LOL
