My little guy is not happy. Yesterday was all cotton candy and gum drops. But today? Another story.

He woke up around 5am crying. I didn't hear him (oops) and Jeff waited it out until he fell back asleep. This happened a few more times. Finally at 6 - Jeff went and got him and he stayed with his head on Daddy's shoulder for about 20 minutes, whimpering.

The next hour and a half, he would just stay on my shoulder, with intermittent bouts of crying. I gave him some Advil and just kept snuggling him. He drank a little bit, but his eyes are glassy and he's just so lethargic. He has no energy and is happiest in my arms. Which I am MORE than happy to do all day long.

He has a temperature of 101.5 so I'll keep a close eye on that. I think it's teething, but really, this is a first for me so I'll just monitor him closely and try and figure out what's going on.

My heart breaks seeing him like this.

Oh no!!! A temperature? If the advil doesn't bring it down pronto--to the doctor? Gosh, I hope the poor little nuggest gets better soon, my heart goes out to both of you!

I hope it's just a bad bout of teething, and that he's better soon. I know how hard it is to see them in pain - it's sooo heartbreaking. Hugs to both of you.

Poor guy! Hopefully the Advil & a couple of nice cold teething rings will keep him semi-comfy....and you from crying right along with him!

How's Mr. C doing today? I hope he's better. Thinking of you guys.

btw - my little lady is still toothless, so i can't fully appreciate what you're going through. she's kind of a "when it rains, it pours" gal - so i'm expecting all of them to cut through at once. argh.:-(
