Teething Time!

We have officially entered the realm of teething.

Okay, so you can't actually see the tooth very well, but the drool glistening on Kyle's chin is ample proof. His drool has increased ten-fold, it seems, since his first tooth poked through his gums on Tuesday night. It's only BARELY through, but we can feel it and at least I can see it (although Cole claims I'm the ONLY one who can). Luckily for us, Kyle hasn't been too irritable lately...at least during the day. The peaceful nights of sleep we once had have become a thing of the past, and Kyle seemingly refuses to sleep without spending at least part of the night in bed with us. Then, he's the only one who actually gets rest--both Cole and I vigilantly remain in one position so as to not roll over and squish Kyle, and we subsequently wake up with muscle cramps virtually everywhere.

Kyle continues to be spoiled by my family. My parents and two of my little brothers just returned from the Performing Arts Tour to Southern California, of course bearing gifts for Kyle. His two favorites seem to be the stuffed Eeyore from his Uncle Nathan and the stuffed Ewok from his Uncle Daniel. Both are fairly soggy now from his constant sucking and chewing.

We're looking forward to the last of Cole's "Mr. Mom" days. I think it's been nice for Cole to spend some time with Kyle, but we're definitely glad to have Cole going back to work. Then, we won't have problems like this come up anymore-- this morning, when Cole was getting Kyle ready for the day, he forgot to unsnap the onesie and it got stuck around Kyle's head, resulting in a rather comical facial expression for Kyle. It was funny until Kyle realized we were laughing at him, and then he wasn't so amused anymore.

(yay! you have one!)hahahaha...i've gotten the shirt stuck around Ethan's head a few times. Last night I did it with a green shirt and it made him look like Shrek. hahaha. I immediately realized what I had done but had to laugh for awhile. I can't believe he's got a tooth! Ethan sure is acting like it but I haven't checked his mouth recently. Hmmm....

yeah, Lyla wakes up during the night occasionally. I just refuse to let her "scream it out." Why make a happy baby miserable, right?

I get so trunky reading your blog :) Makes me excited to be a mom! I'm glad Cole found work and that things are going better for you guys. I know you're doing the right things and that's why things are suddenly looking up!

P.S., Kyle looks so much like Cole it's amazing. But I'm sure you already knew that . . . :)
