A difficult eruption

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 Plus, Little Miss Sunshine had been replaced by Little Miss Thunder, Little Miss Clingy and Little Miss Tantrum.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.

Poor Helen. Go easy on your mama little one, and make her give you one of those Cinnamon Raisin cookies she is hiding in the freezer. That will make it all better.

Helen looks like she's ready to take charge and drive on down the road. Better keep your eyes on that one... Hope Little Miss Sunshine returns soon.

Just send her up here to Grandma for a while. I'll take her, fussies and all! Sure do miss the babes.
