It’s been crazy over here, as you can imagine! We’re getting ready to move in the next few weeks AND gearing up for the busy season with our rental business. So when Gracie seemed to be a little fussy lately, I didn’t really think it was anything major. She just seemed to want to be held more and her naps were a little shorter than usual. I checked her gums a few times but didn’t see anything! So I assumed it was a growth spurt, or maybe from transitioning to no swaddle at night (more on that another day).
The past two nights she woke up around 4am crying. That was really unusual because she’s been sleeping through the night since she was about 5 weeks old. I had to nurse her to get her back to sleep. Luckily she fell right back to sleep until about 7am. Once you’re used to sleeping, it’s SO hard to be woken up by a cry in the middle of the night! But I know it’s temporary!
Yesterday, I was holding her up in the air and her mouth was wide open, laughing, and I noticed her bottom tooth had come through!! I was shocked. I mean, I thought she’d be WAY more irritable. I was so excited for this big milestone. My babies are growing up so fast! I can’t even believe it!
If there’s anything I’ve learned from the past few weeks of being non-stop, it’s to take time to be present with my family! My to-do list will always be there, but my baby’s first tooth only happens once!
