okay so how annoying is it, when you write a nice long blog and you hit delete by accident right as you are about to finish it?
this is what I just did.
so now I will begin again.
we are all in a sort of teething hell.
this child has gums of steel.
almost 15 months and still only two bottom teeth.
the top two are breaking through along with who knows how many others, I think they are all coming at the same time.
this must be pure agony. (for us too..no sleep for weeks/months)
Lulu is beside herself with frustration.
No amount of camellia, tempera, Tylenol, baby motrin, frozen washcloths, fruit popsicles, oragel, cuddling, rocking or just good ol' T.L.C. is doing the trick.
Time, unfortunately is probably the only remedy.
Her first tough life lesson.
I'm trying to keep her pretty busy and distracted during the days.
Today we had to go north of the city to check out a custom shed company.
On the way home we took the 407. such a nice fast way across the top of the city.
If I was a commuter (and thank-god I'm not) I would definitely be taking that kickass highway.
en-route we spied an Ikea. somewhere around Jane st. I think.
It wasn't too busy, surprising for a Saturday.
I wanted to pick up a large seagrass mat for the back porch, but they had none left.
(poor lulu keeps getting splinters from the old deck.)
we ended up getting her some storage stuff and some cute wooden toys instead. can't leave there empty handed.
Ikea is so innovative when it comes to kids stuff, and SO cheap!
it was almost 3p.m. and we were starved, so we hesitantly decided to eat at Ikea.
(I should of brought a power bar.)
big daddy had steamed veggies with grilled chicken breast and I had their shrimp, dill and egg on rye.
we figured those were pretty safe choices.
I should have just had the $1 hotdog.
not exactly a gourmet experience.
But the upside, is that Lulu loved all the "play stations" and enjoyed seeing all the kids running around.
We could have been at disneyworld for all she knew.
she was in swedish heaven.
so for a few short hours, she forgot about her swollen gums.
I halsningar (love) Ikea.
well maybe not the food...
