Busby

A first tooth

It feels like we have always lived in a world where Busby has been teething. A never-ending land of dribbles, crying and clingyness. It began back in April, but the experience has seemed to go on for eternity.

But (I am pleased to announce) we are finally getting somewhere.

On the day that Busby turned 6 months her first tooth appeared; pushing its way out, breaking through the sore pink gum, and rearing its pearly white head with a not so happy “hello” to the world.

Its appearance was met with relief, sadness and excitement:

Relief? Short lived; I thought things were supposed to get better after the first tooth pops up?

Sadness? I’m never going to be on the receiving end of a gummy smile from my little baby again.

Excitement? This is the start of a new chapter in her development.

One thing I’ve learnt since it’s appeared? Don’t let her use you for teething relief anymore… that tooth is sharp (especially on your nose)!!

    I almost don’t want Sam’s to come through as I will miss the gummy smiles so much! And yeah, letting them chew on your finger is never the same again-it’s when they do it when you aren’t looking/expecting-OUCH! Xx

    Argh, we’re going through it right now. Dribbling, chomping on my boobs, tears – I’d forgotten how awful it can be. The first still hasn’t made an appearance yet though.

    Awww such wonderful memories. I miss the gummy smiles too. We are moving onto even bigger teeth in our house, my eldest has lost his 4 front ones this last year. So treasure those little pearls, cos when they fall out its heartbreaking! *sniff
    Great post πŸ™‚

    Yey! I think I saw you tweet she had tooth number 2 now too? Sorry if wrong! My Little A always teethed in twos and not very far a part! I’ve lots about amber necklaces if you wanted to give that a go? Apparently the reason it hurts so much is because the tooth actually twists and then pierces the gum πŸ™ poor baby! xxx

      She does indeed! That came through last night!

      N isn’t massively keen on the whole amber necklace thing πŸ˜‰

      Ouch! xxx
