Bearing Teeth

Today Jonathan brought to my attention that my sweet little baby who will tomorrow turn 4 months has cut his first tooth. This explains the copious amounts of slobber we have recently beheld. It may also explain a few of our sleepless nights of late.

Alas I am hopeful that he will be gentle with these teeth that seem to have come far too early for me. I still have 8 months of nursing ahead of me and he has been known to bite. But I think I said the same of Annie when she got her first tooth at 3 months. I ended up nursing her longer than any of my other kids so I guess it turned out okay.

The other girls got teeth much later. I remember for Sabrina it wasn't until about 8 months. The other two were about 6 months. Still it seems too soon to have a child bearing teeth. Wasn't he just a newborn yesterday?
