Now its time for SUPER BONJELA!

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
Hmm thats better. Well it began about a month ago. The inevitable... the painful... the screaming... the drooling... TEETHING! Yes she has already sprouted her first two teeth - the front bottom ones. It was a Sunday evening when she screamed like she'd never before and we didn't quite know what was wrong - we had assumed the solids we started her on the previous day was giving her bad tummy pains. It wasn't until the Tuesday that she put my finger in her mouth to show me that there was something sharp in there... TEETH! I was a little shocked. This was all in the week before she turned 5 months old. Did you know that the 'average' age to start teething is 7 months. Early bird....
Well she got over the first two and has basically been grizzling over her top gums for a while now.. nothing cut yet but she's very sore. Poor darling. Mind you - wouldn't be surprised if the bottom ones are hurting her top gum as they are so darn sharp! She's like a little jaws. One day in amongst this my mother-in-law gave me a tube of Bonjela. This is a clear gel that you rub on their gums and man... HALLALEUJAH! ... how is that word spelt? but anyway.. praise God for the super inventions of Bonjela, Panadol and Braurs Natural Teething Relief.

Yes it's all about experimenting on the little guinea pigs.

so with all the teething, do you have little indents on your finger?

YES I DOOOOO!! Actually I have worked out a way of putting the bonjela on without getting indented lol. The things we master as parents... great to put on the resume when I go looking for work.

I understand your suprise at teeth so early. Imagine my suprise when Tobias starts to get irritable while his teeth are 'moving' in there. Not sure when they are going to show themselves but currently movement at the station, and he isn't even 3 mths yet. YIKES!!
