Teething is the Pits

Teething really sucks. My poor Sophia has been miserable these past few days.  She hasn't wanted to eat, sleep, drink, or play. She is just a mess. 

I don't like giving her Tylenol all the time so sometimes we have to find other methods.  Yesterday, nothing seemed to work except for constant holding. When she woke up from her nap she was so cranky from being in pain and from being thirsty and hungry that not even snuggles would cheer her up.

Luckily, Mama had one more trick up her sleeve. Ice cold watermelon slices. It cured the thirst, hunger, and sore gums all at once.

Baby girl ate two big slices and was happy all though dinner. I have a feeling we'll be buying a lot of watermelon this summer!

Awww, sweet girl! We have a friend that is 4 mos. old & all ready teething-we were @ a BD party w/ him today & he was completely inconsolable. I feel so bad for them! The watermelon was a great idea! :)

@HollowayHelpersYes, teething is horrible for everyone, especially when there's nothing that works. Thankfully it doesn't last forever!
