Yesterday Helen went to the doctor. She had a swollen lump in her gums, which normally one would think...uh, tooth!...but there was a bluish spot under the surface that had me worried. Plus, Little Miss Sunshine had been replaced by Little Miss Thunder, Little Miss Clingy and Little Miss Tantrum. Since her previous 8 teeth sprouted easily with a total of two tears, I feared something must be terribly wrong. Diagnosis: difficult eruption with resulting hematoma. Give her Tylenol and Orajel. Bring her back if the tooth isn't through in a month. (a month!?) Lord, help us all.
Here are some sunshine pictures to remind me of the good ol' days.
