How sharper than a baby's tooth

So, at the tender age of four months, Paul is teething. He's been drooling and chewing on things for weeks, but since there was nothing to see or feel on his gums, it was hard to be certain that teeth were really the problem.

I'm sure of it now, though. Before now, as long as he'd slept and nursed recently and his diaper was clean, he'd be full of smiles and laughter, and stay happy for an hour or two without much effort on my part. Today, however, he's been fretful, chomping frantically on anything put in his mouth, and wanting to nurse all the time.

Paul's too young to benefit from a lot of the usual teething toys, as he still can't hold on to anything and get it in his mouth, much less keep it there, without assistance. But I've heard good things about a homeopathic remedy called Camilia, so perhaps I'll run out and get some of that tonight.

Wow, that was a boring post. Sorry about that.
