FINALLY...A TOOTH!!!!!!


It seems that Margaret has been teething since she was around 5 months old. Yesterday (Feb.17th) we finally had one of those little buggers break through!! We think the others won't be far behind (though...we also thought she was going to have a some teeth about 6 months ago?!?). I still haven't actually seen the tooth. Margaret is not a fan of anyone coming toward her gums!! I discovered the tooth when she bit down on my finger and I felt the edge of it. Aunt Janet wrestled her down and looked inside her mouth to see the tooth, but after that Margaret was on the defensive of anyone coming toward her mouth. Hopefully, we'll be able to snap a picture of the tooth in the near future.

Awww.. congrats! Teething seems so much worse to me before their little teeth break through.

Hope she does not bite Shana..if still nursing, Gretchen has and it will mean weaning will be MUCH easier!

On the biting (while nursing) bit.. its very easy to teach them not to do that. Not a reason to wean if you/she's not ready.
