There goes the gummy grin

It's official - Romily is teething. According to our maternal and child health nurse, there are at least three bottom teeth trying to make their appearance.

I've suspected this for the past week or so, as Romy has been tugging at her ears, rubbing her jaw and sucking on her fingers like there's no tomorrow. While there's no medical proof that teething makes babies more susceptible to illness, I'm guessing the fact that Romily had a slight temperature and vomited in Launceston last week has something to do with the action in her bottom gum.

The Bonjela has been getting a workout, with Romily sometimes unable to put herself to sleep until her gum is numb.

I'm a little bit sad that teeth are coming - Romy's beautiful gummy grin will be a thing of the past and it's just another sign that my baby is growing up. There's no doubt though that she will look cute as ever with a couple of pegs!
