I haven’t posted a blog for about a week and I was doing pretty well with making sure I posted twice a week. I haven’t just been lazy, I actually have a reason for it (for once). Edie’s finally got her first tooth poking through. I now understand what people meant when they told us “so and so slept fine…until they started teething”. We’re all knackered in this house, even the dog!
Last night I didn’t think she was ever going to stop crying. It was heart breaking. Her little face whenever we tried to put her down was awful. Eventually she calmed down when she was chewing on a teething ring that had been in the fridge. I was lying there, trying to get some sleep (I work full time so Friday and Saturday’s are my nights to get up for her) and she was crying. The crying stopped and after a while I heard her wiggling around on the bed and then a slappy sound. I opened my eyes to find a very chuffed little Edie sitting up clapping with the biggest smile you’ve ever seen! Through the tiredness and disbelief I snorted from laughing so hard. Of course Edie liked the snorting sound.
I doubt any of this makes sense but I’m knackered so I’m posting it and I’m going to try to get some sleep before happy-clapper wakes up.
