Teeth!


Teething seems like it really sucks. I don't know if there is any other way to put it. Eve has a hard time napping, she is constantly chewing on her hand, we are always giving her ice cubes (in one of these, typically for feeding fresh fruit), and she has a few gummy chew things.

I don't know if there's an easy way through this, but so far she's doing ok. She's such an easy going little person (says the guy who doesn't spend all day with her, 5 out of 7 days) that it really sucks seeing her in pain.

I don't have good advice for getting through it except to make sure you have chewable things that can go in the freezer. And buy something nice for yourself if you're staying at home with a teething child. Something like a case of wine or a keg of beer. You deserve it.

One of those days


Eve gets better and better. More active, more yappy, more toothy, more cute, and more lovely. I'm blessed with the perfect wife, the perfect daughter, and three crazy friggin dogs (well, two crazy dogs and one that eats poop).

The hardest part of it all is wishing my Mum was around to be a part of it too. As Christmas, the one year anniversary of her passing approaches, the sadness is coming back more regularly.

She loved my wife, loved our family, and would have loved Eve to pieces.
