the eric update – day 491: molar madness!

of all the processes we might fret more or less about being delayed, odin’s teething timetable isn’t one of them.

ever since our first sighting of tooth enamel his central and lateral incisors have popped through right on schedule and today we discovered that his 12-16 month molars are super duper close to busting through his inflamed gums, which i suppose might explain his recent, occasional fits of uncharacteristic unhappiness in the middle of the night.

all things considered, given how inflamed his gums seem, he’s really not terribly cranky. at least not nearly as cranky as i might be 🙂

that said, maybe it’s time to revive the the ol’ washcloth trick.
