no pain no gain

poor little lulu has been teething for months.
Finally a tiny tooth has appeared on the bottom left...still waiting for it's partner on the right to join him.
I feel so bad for her when she is in pain.
when she had her first needle I cried way more than her.
the second one was easier but not by much.
I know, I know, it's better than the alternative...but at that moment you just feel for this tiny little person who is all happy and smiley one minute and the next some nurse is jabbing her little legs with a dagger of a needle.
We are approaching her next round of shots and I'm already dreading it. gulp.
it must be frustrating to not be able to do anything about pain.
I give her camilla, frozen fruit to chew on, the occasional drop of tempra, but let's face it the only thing that really works is when the damn tooth finally breaks through.
well she has a long way to go, I should say WE have a long way to go.
but throughout the entire thing she keeps on smiling her cute toothless grin....

I can totally relate to your situation. My 'little one' is almost 10 months old and he's been teething for the last three months. Lots of drool and a constant stuffy nose. After the first tooth broke through, he's having an easier time with the others. Four teeth so far! Good luck with the teething.

Your photos are amazing!
