  • Don't know what's up with my boy, but he was SO irritable today! He'd be okay for a while, then start screaming and arching his back, and wouldn't stop even when I picked him up to cuddle him. I gave him some Tylenol thinking it was teething, but nothing seemed to help. He got a bit better in the late afternoon when Brian got home (he was in Vegas all weekend for a guys weekend). Maybe he just missed his daddy?

    For a while in the morning I was thinking of calling the ped, but I felt like there was nothing to say. He didn't have a fever, wasn't pulling his ears, Tylenol didn't help, no obvious injuries.

    Anybody else experience this kind of day? I haven't dealt with this type of inconsolable crying since Marek was 3 months old (and it happened a lot when he was little).

  • check out the back of his mouth. Molars are the worst. Kathleen is getting a top molar right now, and it has explained so much!

  • Rudi~ Taylor has been like that for the last 3 - 4 days and I just noticed a tooth yesterday. Of course, I think she may be cutting 2 more really soon.

    I hope Marek feels "better" soon.

  • Sorry Rudi!!! We have days like that too where Cora is SUPER grumpy and whiny all day. She throws the biggest fits over everything. She screams and cries and throws herself on the ground. For her it has to do with being tired and not sleeping well, plus the normal frustrations of toddler life.
