Update On Teething
Oh my GOSHHHHHHH!!!!!! Nightmare! That would be the one word I would use to describe it- its horrible! Poor Maeve is so incredibly uncomfortable and I have to keep telling myself that- because it is BAD NEWS around the Ladwig-McKenney house lately. Let me explain:
Firstly, Maeve has never been the type of kid to cuddle, sleep a lot or be complacent. She is a spark plug to say the least! She likes to fight me on everything, push the limits and she can do it all on 5 hours of sleep- REALLY! She amazes Ryan and I on a daily basis... she will be up umpteen times during the night but still be able to wake up at 6ish and have boundless energy. Its so strange!
She wants nothing to do with the frozen teethers, or cuddling, or anything soothing like that- she just wants to fuss it out. And it is sooooooo waring on me. At the end of the day I feel emotionally spent and sometimes like a horrible mom because my baby cried for a good portion of the day. Its really quite depressing... BUT we're getting through it one tooth at a time... (or two- she has her two bottom teeth)
I would love any suggestions, thoughts or opinions on this!!!! We need some sleep! ALL of us- even Maeve! She just doesn't know it yet :)
