Today, Jackson was a little out of sorts. He was fussy and crabby all morning! He woke up screaming, which is unusual for this little guy. Over the past few days, Jack had been pulling on his ear and tapping his head--which I thought was weird too. So when he became cranky, I called Dr. Wardell's office to schedule an appointment to make sure it wasn't an ear infection. And, thankfully, it wasn't! Dr. Perona actually saw Jack today, checked both of those little ears, and said he was all clear! She also checked his mouth, which he NEVER lets us do, and she was amazed to see 4 bumps on the top! She pulled back his upper lip to show me, since, again, I never get that close to actually "see" them--sometimes Jackson lets us feel around in his mouth, but anything more than that, and he jerks his head away. Sure enough, I got to see 4 white squares up in his gums, ready to poke through! So THAT explains the unbearable little monster!
But tonight, once Jackson and Daddy got to spend some manly time together while Mommy cleaned up the kitchen, he seemed to be fine--or it was the Baby Orajel and the Tylenol we loaded him up on--either way, he was a chatter/giggle box...but I have to say, it's pretty funny to watch him try and talk with his gums and lips numb! (Mommy got a little crazy with the swab and since Jack moves so much, I got a little on his lips--oops!a
