Bad news first. LittleTiger is unwell. He is running a little fever and has generally been feeling a little low today. And no, I didn't think of calling 911 this time.
Now the good news. We discovered something new inside LittleTiger's mouth. The beginnings of a teeny weeny white tooth! Its just a little fraction of a tooth at this point coming up from his lower gums, but significant enough to make LittleTiger feel uneasy. We actually discovered this last Saturday, and since then I've been holding on to this news with the hope of posting it with some pictures as evidence. However, LittleTiger is really protective of his tooth. His tongue constantly plays with the tooth and hides it from anyone trying to get a good look. And if you do venture close to it, you are sure to be bitten! That's how the tooth was discovered in the first place. Needless to say, I haven't come even close to getting a shot of the baby tooth. But I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunities once the tooth gets a little bigger.
Isn't it amazing how quickly babies grow? I feel like it was only yesterday when we brought him home from the hospital. And he's already getting his first tooth! He has also started showing increasing interest in "adult" food and wants to touch and taste everything that we eat. Thankfully its just one more month before we'll have him start on solids. I can't wait to see what his first reactions will be. For all you know, he'll probably hate solid food once we do let him have it!
In the meantime, lets all hope that LittleTiger is able to get through these initial teething symptoms painlessly.
