Teething.....

Noah currently has 4 teeth. Two on the top, and two on the bottom. Teething has never been fun but lately...it's really been hell! During our trip in Disney World he SCREAMED one night...all night. I'm not talking about waking up once or twice and crying for 10 minutes, I mean he cried for straight hours. Side note: The Polynesian must have incredible wall's because my parents next door didn't hear a thing! Well anyway, the next day I saw a little tooth coming through on the bottom. I was relieved to know that it was just a tooth.
So that lasted one night and his sleep was off here and there but we just figured hey, we are traveling, it's normal. Well the past few nights since we have been home Noah hasn't slept one night ALL the way through. He is now 10 months....Clint and I are exhausted by this! Last night he went to bed a bit earlier than usual (around 9...he is a night owl I tell you). Anyway, he let out a whimper around 10:30 but went back to sleep. We gave him some Tylenol before bed to help with his pain. Well geez...come 4AM and hell broke loose!! Clint got up and gave him a small bottle thinking this would hold him over till 6 when we get up...but nope! He screamed and screamed!!! Clint took care of him for the most part (thanks for that!...he had a meeting with an advisor at 8:30 at UNO so he wasn't rushing off to work). Well, once I got up and out the shower Clint went to get us breakfast and poor Noah cried the WHOLE time. I mean for 15 minutes straight! Nothing that I would do would soothe him. It was very sad. The screaming continued until I put him in the car and then he zonked out! He sometimes falls asleep in the car but then quickly wakes up when the car stops but he was out like a light! Phew!
