It has already happened...

What has happened you ask? This evening I had to switch my agenda for tomorrow night. Jake and I were going to bring Jennie to Olive Garden for dinner with some friends. Remember a previous post about what happened at Olive Garden? Yea, so didn't want that happening again. This is the third night in a row that Jennie has been a c-r-a-b-b-y baby. I really hope it's just a tooth at this point, because her 4 month check up is Wednesday so I know we won't get in to see her doctor anytime before then. I don't think there's anything else wrong other than a possible tooth coming in. Still no fever but her cheeks are really rosy and kind of puffy and all she wants to do is gnaw on everything. It's been nearly a week of the same symptoms, but I still don't see a tooth yet...I need experienced parents to answer- how long does it take to cut the first tooth? I'm so not a fan of google-ing these things because the first thing that will pop up for a cranky baby is cancer. Or some other implausible diagnosis. Seriously, any help is appreciated!

Anyways, so instead of going out to dinner with friends, our friends are coming to us. Jake will be making lasagna, and after hearing of my daughter's fussiness one friend volunteered to bring wine. If only I drank...and so it has happened. I guess we are lucky that it took more than four months before our new roles as parents interfered with our social life. Not that it's a bad thing- saving money and making sure an entire restaurant full of people don't have to hear my daughter's cries are definite pros to a night at home with friends. Can't wait to see everyone...oh and if you're reading this and haven't got an invite yet, c'mon over :)


  1. Wow, I love lasagna! :)

    Oh dear, I've forgotten how long it takes to cut the first tooth. And you're right about googling these things. They just make you all paranoid for no reason.

    Please pass me the lasagna... :)

  2. Ummm...I won't tell you how long it took Jillian to cut her first tooth. It kept coming up and then going back down. But after the first one it does seem to get easier. I do however, think you have nothing to worry about, sounds like a tooth to me.
