The Newest Love of My Life...

Yesterday we had a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. A monster was set loose in our house, and his name is Nathan The Terrible Teether. That poor, poor baby was in so much pain that he just wasn't happy all day. It took me a little while to figure out what was wrong. He would be smiling and playing one minute and screaming and wailing the next. I just could not make him happy. I had to take him to Granny Jane's last night because I had pool league. He was not a happy camper over there either. When I went to pick him up, I brought some baby Orajel. I put it on his little gums, and he was a totally different baby within minutes. He stopped crying and started smiling. He was sitting on my lap and he looked at me and smiled, and then he leaned over and gave me a big kiss. It was so sweet! But then I felt really lousy. I don't know why I didn't do that sooner. It was so easy to make him feel better. It just took me all day to figure out what was wrong and how to fix it. I guess that's just part of being a new mom. It's amazing how motherhood can make you feel supremely happy, extremely powerful, and horribly inadequate. It all just depends on the day. But I wouldn't give it up for the world.

Here's a new LO I did the other night. I really like how it turned out, so I'll share it with all of blogland!
