Last night after many nights of the boys sleeping for at least 10 hours was hard. Andrew started fussing at about 2 am. We fed the boys at 11:45 that night so he couldn’t be hungry already. I gave him is pacifier and rubbed his back for a minute and he went back to sleep. The pattern of fussing and calming continued every 20 to 30 minutes until 6 am. Luckily only a couple times did he wake Nick or Parker who quickly calmed with a pacifier.
At the time I didn’t even think about the possibility of teething, just thought it was an off night. This morning when I was actually awake I wondered if we were starting teething. The boys have been chewing on everything they could get in their mouths for the last week or so. I meant to check and just kept forgetting to all day.
It was a busy day of running errands and we didn’t do a tooth check until right before bedtime. Sure enough Andrew’s two bottom front teeth had broken through. A few minutes later we confirmed everyone’s two bottom teeth had been cut.
It looks like our days of gummy grins are coming to an end.
