Teething Baby from Hell (of doom)

Egads. We've been blaming every slight bother for months on teething. Baby frowns? Oh, he must be teething. Baby farts? TEETHING! But starting last week he's started really teething.

Poor kid. He's so much less on his game when his teeth hurt. Anytime he's not doing something he's upset. Today he's had a teething biscuit and then I gave him a peeled carrot. He liked the carrot a lot. But when he's teething he doesn't want to nap because his teeth hurt, so then he gets frustrated because he's sleepy too.

life is great

No particular reason to say so, but it's awesome to sit here and watch The Boy play. He can stay sitting up for as long as he wants, but he can't lie down from the sitting position except by falling and bonking his head. Although he definitely has a STRONG head, I think that probably bonking himself on it fifteen times a day probably isn't the best thing. So I've taken to putting a pillow behind him when he's sitting up playing. That cuts down on probably 75% of the bonks... of course sometimes he decides to fall sideways. So I was just watching him play and he must have decided to lean back. He ended up laying on the pillow. Then he squirmed around for about a minute trying to figure out how to sit back up. Then he saw a something out of the corner of his eye, flipped himself over, and is now trying to pull a chair down on himself. I better go stop him.

back on the horse

there's no explanation for why i haven't blogged in so long... so, back to it.

long walk this morning. we left the house @ 8:30... went to autozone, bought the wrench I needed to finish fixing the taps, then walked up county, right on main, down to the library, got the last book on reserve that came in (short stories by donaldson), then down to CVS. Guillette never called them but she checked and we had a bunch of refils left anyway, so I told her I'd be back in 15 minutes.

out the back of cvs, through the woods to Flo St, down flo st, boy falls asleep... down the little back street we used to walk, right back to peck st, left on peck st, left on bank st down to the back of the cemetary.

through the cemetary, left on n main back to cvs. picked up script. boy still sleeping.

down the st we used to walk, left, right, past willette school down back to mechanic st, left on 4th street, home.

probably close to two or three miles. my back feels good, I think that's good exercise. I took one advil before the walk and I'm icing my back now. boyo is happily playing in the pen refreshed from his long nap.
