Growing

Happy 5 months, Sweet Morgan!!!


Teething has begun this past month. He started waking up around 4 each morning to feed and then would lay there moaning and groaning about his teeth for about 2 hours. He wasn't resting well and neither was I. So I ordered him one of those amber teething necklaces. Since he started wearing it I have noticed such a difference in him. He is sleeping through the night again. He still chews on anything he gets his hands on but he is no longer complaining while he does.

Poor little guy has developed a nasty case of eczema on his cheeks and all around his neck. I hope it doesn't last too long. I'm not really sure what to do to help it clear up faster.

He likes to lay on his belly to play with his toys and can roll from belly to back. He has recently started joining us at the table for dinner. He's not eating any food yet, but he sits in one of the booster seats and plays with his toys.

Sweet :)

My third boy had terrible eczema starting at about 3 months. Turns out he was severely allergic to milk.

So cute, time has flown for sure. I saw your sisters at camp, very briefly but it was still nice. I am so curious about the teething thing you mentioned??

yes, I want to know about that teething necklace you mentioned too. Also I use Eucerin dry skin therapyPlus Intensive repair lotion. Works for me!!I'll send it if you need. And the library was a good idea, poor Caleb,things don't always work out the way we planned,sorry Caleb.

First of all....SUCH a cutie! Secondly....what is an amber teething necklace?! We are working on the dreaded molars here and let me tell you....we're NOT happy!

Hi, I found you throught my sister's blog (Dear Abbi). My son has terrible eczema (I do too) and I found that "The Body Shop" Hemp Body Butter works WONDERFULLY to heal eczema. I would just make sure to apply it to my little guy. The Body Shop is a U.K. company so you might be able to find it easily where you are living.

What handsome little men you have! :)

Dawn, I got an amber teething necklace! It arrived yesterday which was perfect timing because Brennen has been miserable and not so very nice (way out of character!) He wore it ALL afternoon and was MUCH happier! I was amazed! Thank you SO much for the tip. 2 questions though....is yours really light weight? I ordered mine from a place here in the states and it seems almost like plastic it's so light. 2nd question....do you just leave it on Morgan while he sleeps? Mine says to take it off but I don't see how it could really hurt him..... It seems to work though! I even got one for my mom as she has really bad joint problems. I hope this will give her some relief as well. Why have I never heard of these before?
