I have been WAITING for Turner to get his teeth! He’s been drooling like crazy
picture dog with his head hanging out the window with drool flying in the wind since he was about 4 months old. He would soak through two bibs a day! I swore he was going to pop a tooth any day. I thought I had an early bloomer on my hands! NOPE. The days turned to weeks, and the weeks turned to months. He just drooled for 3 months straight. I finally gave up on the bibs. They didn’t match his outfits, and he got seriously soaked anyway! I stopped looking for teeth.
A few weeks ago (you probably remember my ranting) he wasn’t napping. He had a runny nose and wanted to be with me all day! I guess that’s when they started really coming in, although I couldn’t see anything. Then, all of a sudden, A TOOTH. It just appeared out of nowhere! He wasn’t grumpy or anything! I was waiting for a very unhappy baby. Stew said it’s because he has “a Watson pain tolerance”…Ok, I’ll give him that. He’s one tough little cookie!
I want to keep track of his major milestones so I can look back and remember the moment EXACTLY! So, here we go! P.s. I made a print of this chalkboard that I’m selling as a digital file on etsy. Check it out!
