Rowan has been teething over the last couple of weeks (so what else is new?!), I finally got a look in his mouth yesterday before work and noticed two of his canines are coming through at once - tooth #14 and #15. Rowan has been more of a one-tooth-at-a-time teether during his life (and doesn't take teething in his stride, despite wearing his baltic amber necklace and using pain relief where necessary), so I can imagine this is rather painful for him.

I thought he had a tough time with cutting that first set of molars, but the canines have been just as bad for him, if not worse! I'd heard about this from other parents, but didn't really believe it as the canine teeth appear to be much smaller than molars (ie, cutting one point as opposed to four). Famous last words, hey?

We've all been tired as a result of disjointed night-times, so what a surprise to have him sleep from 8.30pm-9am this morning. What a massive sleep! We all got to play a little catch-up. ;)

The elusive dark brown eyes that are difficult to capture with my lens,
the same shade as mine.


  1. Thanks for thinking of me! I wrote a quick post..been very busy! Canines are HORRIBLE! Abbey's been working on all four at once :(

    1. Four at once?! Oh crap, I feel her pain, literally and metaphorically!! May it be over soon for Abbey. xx

    2. yeah, poor thing seems to always have at least 2 often 3 or 4 at once. Between that and a sinus infection and now an allergic reaction to penicillin, it's been a loooong couple of months.

    3. Ugh, doesn't sound like a fun time at all. Is she picking up more germs now that she's in daycare? I found that it happened a lot with us when Rowan first started in care too (and I brought home a few nasty ones from work, my immunity went down after being away from preschoolers for that 16 months). Are either of you allergic to penicillin or is it a random allergy?
