Shiver Me Timbers

How long has the bug had only two teeth? Seems like years and yet her first birthday is just around the corner.

That may change very soon. As in she could wake up with eight teeth tomorrow. The tips are showing just below the surface.

Well, we finally finished off the teething gel tube we got in a baby shower gift and bought a new one. We don't apply too often, but generously.

As another remedy attempt, we've given her ice cubes to play with. Even after mastering the art of holding a grip long enough to be able to put it in her mouth, she never really did. Seems the cold hand sensation and magically appearing water were fascinating enough.

She has a wide range of teething toys (official and otherwise). However, they're better received before pain, not so much after.

So, we broke down and stuck a few wet washcloths in the freezer. Comedy. Ever see an eleven-month old do the bad-actor shiver? I have.

The best though, is when she bites into it. The random reactionary faces that result are funny enough to get her laughing. Once she laid her head down on it for some reason. Not for long, though.
