Leon was extra fussy this evening. Really had a difficult time falling asleep despite all our efforts to soothe him. He was chomping on his hand, super drooly and was just plain irritable. Chris finally said- "maybe he is teething?" WOW. Could it be? So I reached and felt his bottom gum and sure enough it felt bumpy. We're not sure yet but if this is the onset of the teething stage- then the feeling of my heart sinking could be validated. Just when I thought I have Leon figured out change comes. This time it's change that means he is less and less the newborn baby we brought home almost 4 months ago. It really is bittersweet.
I guess we'll find out in a few days if there really is a tooth about to emerge.
