So after months of drooling and gumming everything in sight, Joey finally cut his first tooth! It is on his lower right side. and boy has he earned this first one.
I have to say that so far this whole teething thing has been the most difficult thing of parent hood. I know he is only 7 months old and there will be more stressful things to come. I did OK with lack of sleep and "mommy brain" many days. I did OK with going back to work and having to take him to the sitter for the first time. He (I) only cried for a minute for his first shots, but there have been some days I have almost pulled my hair out with these teeth. I just feel so bad for him. And of course I know it could be worse. I have heard some crazy stories. and he is a tough little guy.
The one next to it is going to break through any time now. So he will have that cute little smile with only 2 teeth. Although I will say I am going to miss that little gummy grin. :)
