My Poor Baby

Remember those adorable pictures from yesterday (taken on Sunday)? Well, look at these sad, sad pictures today...






Our poor little guy is suffering from a tooth explosion. He hasn't been himself for the past week or so now, and for the past 4 days straight (maybe more), he has been up most of the night. He's got a bit of a cough, so when he cries, he coughs, which makes him cry more and it becomes a sick cycle. I picked him up from school today and he just seemed a bit bummy. I bring him in the house, put him in the family room while I carry in the rest of the stuff and get changed and today, when I came back in, he was just laying on the floor resting his head on his hands. He looked pitiful. For Colin to just lay there like that, you know he isn't feeling well.
I brought him over to the couch so we could snuggle together and watch Ellen and he proceeded to cry for almost 45 minutes. I almost started crying because he was inconsolable! I just feel so bad and I will admit that I am not used to this. We have been extremely grateful because Colin has been very healthy since birth (barely even a cold) and this is probably the MOST we have been up at night since we used to have to wake HIM up when he was a newborn.
But, shortly after Daddy came home, and after he had his dinner while watching Mickey (yes, I am a pushover lol) he started to perk up a bit. Lets hope for a little boy who feels much better tomorrow!

Praying his teeth pop in and stop hurting. We feel your pain, Alayna just got in her 2 year molars and they were killers. Hoping for a better nights sleep for all.

Poor thing, I hope he feels better. We have been doing the teething all at once thing with Emily too...she had only 6 teeth for a long while but over the last month she has gotten 4 molars and another tooth on the bottom!

Feel better Colin...I am so sad picturing him with his head in his hands on the floor! Sort of wish kids were born with a full set of teeth!
