Aeries Is Cutting Teeth. Ouch.

Aeries has a third tooth coming in and it's really bothering her. She fussed quite a bit this weekend unless she was being held or entertained. Sometimes that didn't help much either.
Saturday afternoon Aeries bit down on one of her hard plastic toys really hard and it must have cut her gums. She became pretty much inconsolable for a while, and she was in tears for a couple of hours. The gel stuff didn't work - it just made her mad and she became more upset. Fortunately Auntie Jenn was here and ran to the store and picked up some of the tablets (which we'd never heard of) and bingo, no more pain. Thank you Auntie Jenn. She also brought over a couple new toys - including a rubber ducky which Aeries loves.
She finally fell asleep Saturday evening about 6 and napped as solid as we've ever seen her nap for a good solid 4 hours. Then she woke up for a bottle and some playtime and then was back to bed again and had a good sleep.
She's such a sweet girl. When it didn't hurt she was smiling and laughing and talking thru her tired eyes. She's really a sweet little thing. We're all so fortunate.

Happy Thanksgiving

Mom placed one of these at each table setting.

After dinner we played Pictionary. What a great game!

The Sooner the Better!

Not sure when this will happen. Tomorrow? The next day? The year 2070? No date specified.

Kelsey Stopped By This Week

Kelsey stopped by this week a few times and it was great having her around a little 'extra'. She's still working at Starbucks and really enjoys it.

Conner goes rollerskating

Friday afternoon we took Conner rollerskating. He was really excited about it. I think he was surprised how difficult it was to stand up, but he kept at it and kept at it and pretty soon he was doing well. He fell quite a bit of course but less and less as the 2.5 hours went by. By the end he was quite confident...confident enough to participate in a race! We had a blast and we're sure he'll want to go again soon!

Aeries is Almost 8 Months Old!
