2 down, 26 to go

I was a little (read 'very') surprised to see a little white dot on Squiggles lower left jaw a couple of days ago. On closer examination it turned out that Squiggles had a little white tooth in the making. The little one is teething which explains the sad sounds she's been making which I attributed to colic! I called my mom and told her the (good?) news and she refused to believe me - a first time mom can never get things right after all :). When she came to visit, she examined Squiggles mouth only to discover not one but two (yes two) teeth!! My little one is growing so fast.

I decided not to tell DD just then but to wait and surprise him with the news in the evening. So, when I picked him up from work in the evening I asked him to guess what was new with Squiggles. He made several random guesses and kept badgering me to tell him throughout the drive home (there was no way I was going to spill the beans especially since he was getting more pissed off by the minute!). I told him that he should get home and discover the change for himself.

As I parked the car he said, 'Is she teething?'.

How on earth did he guess that I ask you? I wouldn't have guessed in a million years. And the piece de resistance.... "I told you about it 2 days ago but you wouldn't believe me."

What rubbish. It's typical isn't it, you try and create a nice little surprise for Daddy Dearest and not only does he not even pretend to be surprised but claims to have made the discovery several days before. Men.. hmph.

OMG! She's teething at 2 months! Breastfeeding just got that much harder... :-)

And Squiggles Dad? Lucky shot in the dark, I tell you. Of course, he is NEVER going to let you forget this :-)

I couldn't help laughing at the last bit "not only does he not even pretend to be surprised but claims to have made the discovery several days before. Men.. hmph"

And way to go squiggles! But I hope you get them easy way out! All the best!

At 2 months?? Wow! Maybe I should keep an eye on this kid too..he has suddenly discovered the use of his lungs- lets out the most bloodcurdling screams when he's colicky.. actually thinking of recording them to play back to him when he's older and being pesky :-)

Moppet's Mom, nm, Mala - As you will read in my later post.... I got a bit carried away :) and I am feeling a little embarrased (read a lot). This is what happens when you start blogging... you can't hide anything!
