When Harmon was teething in all honestly it really wasn't that bad! Okay it was bad but b/c we used the Highland Teething tablets, Motrin, Oragel, Tylenol, and even some Vicodin we made it through (the Vicodin part is a joke so no need for calling CPS). But this time our new pedi has convinced me that Tylenol is really the only safe one of these meds to use and of course it is the crummiest. Also the fact is when it was just Harmon well, we could take turns handling the screaming, feverish, diarhea monster.
Oh but not this time. Now we are truly out numbered and armed w/only some gel freezer toys and a bottle of Tylenol. We are getting our butts kicked! I was so tired today from all the teething drama that I fell asleep talking to the physical therapist. Rachel and Cally each are having fevers but she gets diarhea while he gets constipation. Rachel sleeps well at night but is a total nightmare during the day. She just WAILS! Cally is our consistent moaner and at night he wakes up the whole night wanting love. I spend the whole day practicing my infant massage techniques and night Chris is sticking paci's and doling out the Tylenol.
The good news is that Miss Rachel sprouted her first tooth finally on Sunday and a new one is emerging today. Cally Jolly has yet to sprout a tooth but I can feel the two distinct bumps. Hopefully this teeth spurt will be done soon and I can get a little night sleep and a few quiet moments during the day.
