The Girl Who Cried Teeth

It seems like Lucy's teeth have been about to break through the surface for a few months now... "they look so close!", and at times she would have little flare-ups that led us to think that her teeth would appear any day. Days, weeks, months go by... and she's still gumming her Graduates.

Over the last 2 days she has spent most of her waking moments crying - except when we are in a strange new place, or we find some way to distract her with something interesting. She stops for a couple minutes, and then realizes that she's supposed to be upset, and resumes. This really isn't like her, so our first theory is that her teeth - at least a couple of them - will break through soon... but I'll believe it when it happens. I've heard this story before....

We are in the same boat. Every few weeks since Ella was about four months old, she will have a fussy couple of days and a runny nose and hold her mouth funny, and so we are sure teeth are coming...and then nothing. Hang in there!
