2-week madness

so the past 2 weeks were total madness. it started right after easter... abby grace got sick. but she decided to start teething. at. the. same. time. oh the misery.

so whenever i heard moms talk about teething before i was like 'oh that stinks'. yeah so when they say their kids are teething, these are the implications:
the baby is...
- extra fussy
- fighting sleep
- running a fever usually
- drooling. everywhere.
- fighting feedings usually
-wanting to be held constantly

so, in essence, life gets pretty chaotic. i thanked the Lord for tylenol. you can give it in small doses every 4hrs. literally, at the 3hrs45min mark, she would start getting fussy. thankfully her bottom tooth broke through after about 1.5wks and the tooth right next to it should break through any day now.

she was a pitiful sight and honestly, so was i. but who wants to see me looking all pitiful? at least she's still all cute when she's sick. here are some pics:

here she is happy right after easter. but you can tell her eyes are swollen and the madness is about to ensue!

poor, pitiful, precious abby grace turned into my little monkey bc she wanted to be held all the time.
grateful for my ergo carrier.

starting to feel better but eyes still swollen...

'hmm how do i fit this in my mouth?'

all better! still some teething going on but for the most part back to normal!

in other news...

abby grace loves looking at books now!

my sis, nat, got us this 'beaba' baby food maker - it steams, purees, and reheats baby food so you can make your own! super excited about this! i had planned to start our journey into the world of solids a couple weeks ago but then the madness occurred. so i'll be starting that up real soon.

we got together with our good friends, the hintons, and abby grace & pax 'played'.
abby grace was definitely interested in watching pax play!
pax was content with his toys :)

abby grace got real tired and assumed her sleeping position. this is how she sleeps, with her hands all tucked underneath her. it's pretty darn cute.

so this is my most recent fav pic of abby grace.
isn't she a doll? ;)


  1. Glad your super cutie is feeling better! I used this website a lot for Reed's baby food adventures- wholesomebabyfood.com :)

  2. We are so excited for the break through of her tooth! Come on #2!! (well, tooth that is ;) It is times like these when our babies get sick, or teeth where we have to rely fully on the Lord for endurance and wisdom. You and Trent have done a wonderful job with Abby Grace and are a great example as parents! We love the pictures of Abby Grace, and no worries, I didn't show Pax the last one but he just loves that girl so much, even if he does seem uninterested in person, he likes to play hard to get...we are trying to teach him to be the one to pursue...all in good time! We love yall and are always excited to read these updates!

  3. Oh, I'm so sorry teething is rough!!! Tucker has only 1 tooth, and it broke through last week. yes, tylenol rocks! :D
    Abby Grace is so cute! I hope I can meet you guys soon!
    Also, I use this website for recipes when I make Tucker's food if you want to check it out:


  4. I'm so sorry Abby Grace has been so miserable with teething! :-( That's no fun! I hope that now that a couple have come through, the rest won't be as bad for her.

    She is still adorable as ever though! :0)I guess that helps when they're screaming, eh?
