The antithesis of my beautiful morning

Dean woke up at 6:30 this morning. Not bad.

He's been whining and crying ever since.

He wouldn't eat his oatmeal (which he usually loves).

He wouldn't eat the banana he kept asking for (only took a bite).

I'm guessing it's probably the bottom molars that are close to coming through, but I couldn't handle it anymore!

I would have taken him jogging (my usual fall back for whiny mornings), but it's quite windy out and the yahoo weather says it's 41*. Not freezing, but pretty cold for a baby without a stroller cover. I need to make me one of those...

I usually let Matt sleep in as long as he wants on Saturdays, but I was so tired of listening to this whiny baby I plopped Dean on the bed (where Matt laid with his head covered by my pillow) and said, "Your turn!" and left to go read blogs and hear only the distant screams of my child.

I guess that just means there's a whole lot of room for improvement for today. Right?

It is funny how kids can change so much from one day to the next! Good luck!

All I can say is that teeth growing is the pits. I found it incredibly annoying when a mom would say something like "yeah I just put my finger in his mouth and noticed he had 2 new teeth!" I knew the second each tooth broke on Addie because they were all agonizing slobber and fever inducing fiascos. Good luck with that.

I had the same sort of day. Me and Lily have had the stomach flu, so as soon as Brandon walked in from Golf today I said your turn and went and plopped on the couch for the rest of the day! And I heard alot of crying coming from upstairs...

LOVE IT!! That is great and good for you. I know our husbands work hard during the week but we need a break too!! Teething is great fun let me tell you. Vance never had just one tooth come in at a time he always had at least two or three. Even when he was getting his two year mollars they all came in at once. SUCH A BLAST!!
