My Journal - Week 27 (22Feb10)
I now know why Hunter's cheeks were so red, (and continue to be). Originally I had reservations that it was due to his vaccination only because he has had the same vaccinations twice before, and nothing happened. I know I mentioned that it didn't make much sense for it to be from teething because he already had a tooth that appeared and then disappeared on two prior occasions. However having said that, tonight Hunter was drooling excessively and trying to jam both hands into his mouth. I took a look and a feel (in the old spot where the eye tooth/molar was peeking out) and I didn't see anything, so I felt the bottom front teeth area, and I felt a raised up hard bump under his gums on the left bottom tooth side. I looked in and noticed a shiny almost see through area located on that part of his gums - I suppose because a tooth is coming in, the gum looks nearly transparent in just that tiny spot. I got the flashlight, and did some further investigation. WOW, there it is. A bottom front tooth. I took a picture of it, (it's kind of hard to see so when you are looking, if you want a better view, click on the picture itself and it should open up very large) and now I have proof.
I think the transparentness is actually the hole. This would certainly explain his crankiness these past few days, I am sure his gums are sore. I bought him a Nuby teething ring, and an Icy teether. (The Nuby picture below has multiple sensations for sore gums, and the Icy ring is a standard teething ring that is currently chilling in the fridge.)
If it pokes out any further, I will be right on top of things taking another picture to record the proof! At least this time it's in the right spot or a more typical spot then the last one!
Oh, a technical note for you all, if when you load the blog any of the gadgets (like Poll #7) are missing, either refresh your browser or click on the missing gadget and it should re-load. Sometimes I outsource items (gadgets) for my blog, and they may not load properly for some reason or another. And yes, I changed the blog background, I had a few complaints that the post and sidebar area were too small. I hope that you all like this selection. Changing things takes a bit of time, and some tweaking takes a little HTML knowhow. Enjoy!
