Worst Week EVER

This was the worst week for Jackson. He has been such a pill and I am sure it is because he is teething but MAN won't these teeth just come through so we can move on. Here are some of the symptoms he has had over the past week:

  • Inflamed mouth
  • restless sleeping
  • early morning wake-ups (6:30 am when he usually sleeps until 9 or 10)
  • refusing to eat
  • refusing to drink
  • slight fever
  • rash on his face (pink face)
  • crying when we refuse to hold him and carry him around
  • loss of balance. . .falling over....crying from falling over
  • nothing seems to please him
It doesn't help that we stayed at the Stoker's for a few days so he couldn't sleep in his own bed, it has been super hot this past week, and the early light keeps him awake.

Thankfully I think I see the light at the end of the tunnel. He slept in today (because I bought blackout curtains), ate some of his favorite things (animal crackers and yogart), and he has been taking a 3 hour nap. Hopefully it will be over soon. He has 10 teeth so you think that he would be used to it by now but this past month with the molars coming in has been the worst time. POOR KID!

Hey Jess! I hear ya, Saydee just had a week like that. She has been super crabby and a total pill. She was doing a lot of the same things as little Jack. Love ya! I am glad that you are doing well other than that.
