The Teething Monster

It's been a whirlwind few days of cranky baby, cloth diaper annoyance, and a disdain for cleaning and cooking. I was a little too ambitious with adding in homemade meals every night. I mean, it's just me here eating it. I learned the hard way that a lot of food goes to waste. So, I am going to aim for every 2-3 days since leftovers will fill in just fine. Oh - don't get me started on the diapers. I am so over the diapers. For now. Update soon. I promise. 

Dare I say our little bundle is finally sleeping soundly and has been since 7:45pm? What a relief. We've been having "bedtime battles" for the past few nights and Asher has been winning. He just doesn't want to sleep! Here's a little snippet of what we've got going on at bedtime...

This will last for hours! Eventually I'll go get him, try my best to keep him calm out in the living room with me covering all the bases - change, feed (if he'll eat), burp - then I'll put him back to bed and the cycle continues. Thank goodness that tonight he is letting me take breather and is staying in bed - asleep. Hallelujah. 

The little guy is also starting to show signs of teething discomfort. They're coming! He's been gnawing on anything and everything much more often and much more forcefully than ever before. Around 5pm, like clockwork, it seems the aching starts to get the best of him and the tears start to break through. He pulls on and pats his cheek and ear and the most calming thing for him has been a cool teething ring. He even prefers it over his paci. Poor little guy. 

"I never asked for teeth!!!"

Although our household has been turned somewhat upside-down for the past few days with lack of sleep for everyone and the 3 Cs of the Wonder Week (clingy, cranky, crying), we still have a content and happy baby for most of the day... As long as you're holding him or playing with him. Hence the aforementioned disdain for cleaning. So, without further ado, here is a fun compilation of his happy and giggly moments throughout the past few days followed by my latest iPhone favs... Gotta keep it lighthearted up in here. ;)

You see? A teething and wonder week filled household can still be a fun and laughter filled household! You just have to find the silver lining. Let's just say we all needed that video around here.

I bought this for Asher, and when it arrived it was MY SIZE! Talk about luck!
