James had started to drool, get fussy and actually refused to nurse last Friday. I chalked it up to not being too excited about starting solids, and after talking to a nurse at our Peds office, held off on giving him any cereals and purées for a few days.
I was super excited to show off my happy baby on Sunday when we went to visit Lacey and Michael in Baltimore. He was so drooly and crabby, I was sad they didn't get to see my fun giggly little boy.
I got an inkling he actually does did like eating when he practically jumped out of my lap trying to get to my lump crab Mac and Cheese (it was so good I don't blame him).
Why this sudden fussiness? Then it dawned on me teething (ok it dawned on my babysitter, who told me he was probably teething). Each day he has gotten worse and worse for my little guy. And today he fussed and wined all day.
At play group, which he usually loves, he screamed and cried the whole time. It broke my heart. He stopped just as we were leaving, of course.
We stopped on the way home and bought every teething accessory I could find. I'm hoping for a happier baby and happier baby heading into the weekend.
James says pretty soon I'm going to chomp you like this alligator.
