Well, little C has his first teeth. They broke through yesterday. How fun! I’m glad they’re finally though – poor little guy was miserable for a while. I told Stephen last week I thought the teeth would be in by the end of this week, and I was right.
He had his 6 month well baby visit today too. He’s growing great now that he’s on formula. I ended up having to switch because my milk supply just couldn’t keep up. I tried everything I could, short of taking the drug Reglan. I have nothing against taking the drug – it’s just that the protocol involved more time than I could spend with having a 4-year-old as well. It got to the point where I was stressing out about my supply. . .C was hungry more than he should have been. . . and I just couldn’t spare the extra 20-30 minutes every couple of hours to go try and fit in pumping time besides nursing. I didn’t want to switch, but I really do feel that it was the best decision for our family. It was a tough transition though – for me – not for C. He did great.
So. He’s eating solid foods (which I am having a BLAST making!) and is such a smiley baby that Stephen has taken to calling him Smiley. It’s so fun to watch him. So far he pretty much inhales anything I put near his mouth, lol. I’m glad he’s not been picky yet!
At the moment he’s playing with teething toys in his high chair – throwing them on the floor and letting S pick them up. S is having fun, C is having fun, and I’ve been able to work on some jewelry orders – all right at the table with my boys.
Oh. Looks like C has had it with their “game.” Guess my time here is up!

I rarely if ever leave a comment but feel I must this time……You will NEVER regret your decision regarding Relan! I choose to take it and it was the WORST decision. It caused clinical depression on top of my postpartum depression and robbed me of precious days with my little one. I have blocks of time that I cannot remember…..weeks that turned into months. I contemplated leaving my husband while on that drug. Anyone who knows me knows I would NEVER do that….matrimony is too precious to God and to me to ever comtemplate that. When I became suicidal, I finally told the lacation nurse what was going on with me….I was off that medicine so fast…..but it was weeks before the real me was back. I rest in the knowlege that God knew what was going on and He will somehow redeem that decision.
Melody, I’m glad the transition went smoothly. I just love to see new teeth in a baby’s mouth. What a mile stone for the little guy. Mine loved it when he went to solids. He ate everything insight.
