Tooth #3

Baby boy has tooth #3 breaking through on top. He bit down on my finger tonight, and boy, I felt it! We still haven't quite figured out crawling, but we'd rather stand up anyway!

Oh, by the way, does anyone have a good remedy for constipation? I'm having trouble getting through to the pediatrician (their line stays constantly busy and I have to call around my classes), and Hayden needs relief desperately. We started making some headway a few days ago, but now we're back to him barely getting anything out and his poor bottom is so tender and red. We've tried prune juice, Karo in the bottles like our ped. suggested, suppositories, and anything else we come across! Please help me help him!

On a side note: I'm so SICK of rain! And it's so hot and humid, not like Christmas at all. In fact, it's downright depressing! Today the fog never lifted and it rained during lunch, so the kids did not get to go outside at all. And they sure could have used the break from the school building!

Oh, and did you know it's the teacher's fault when a student has missed too many days and she can't be exempt? Yep, I caused this young lady not to turn in excuses and thus, she has to take my exam (note the sarcasm). Hate it for ya. Deal with it. And I have another young man who does nothing in my class because apparently I'm not funny like his English teacher last year so I don't hold his attention. And at some point the school "messed" him over (he had an alternate word) so he basically refuses to do anything. See you in 8th grade again next year, kiddo.

So this whole post was really just to let you know Hayden has his third tooth coming in--front and center. Well, maybe just a little to the right, but you get the idea! Chomp, chomp!

Going to make our first visit to Santa this weekend! Hoping for a happy visit!

yay for new teeth! things that helped relieve mattie leigh when she was constipated: straight apple juice (don't water it down), cutting out all cereal for a few days, baby food prunes (they work MUCH better than the prune juice), cutting back on veggies and adding extra fruit. keep trying the sometimes took 2-3 doses over the course of a few days for them to work for mattie leigh. teething can cause both constipation and diarrhea...mattie leigh seemed to flip flop between the two each time she got new teeth.

hey Jamie! Warm sugar water (2 to 4 ounces) worked for both of mine. Good luck!
