Teething isn't fun for anyone

So I'm sitting here this morning and instead of killing time by surfing the web, I thought I would actually post something.  So the young lad has been going through teething, already with 4 teeth and getting a 5th and soon to be 6th and I gotta say, there's definitely a reason we don't remember that.  It could either be on purpose, or it could be the brain's self defense thing where it forgets a traumatic experience.

Either way, he's not really enjoying the experience all that much, and consequently, neither am I and his mother.  He's not a screamer at all, but he does wake up about every hour at night, which is no fun for me since I'm the one that gets up with him.

On the other hand, he's going through first accomplishments left and right.  He's crawling now, he says Dada, he claps and high fives...  it's like he's a whole person!  It's truly amazing watching him develop and form who he is.  Parenthood is definitely the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done.  Also the most exhausting.  I don't know when the last time I got 8 hours of sleep in.

That time keeps a slippin'

So the time has flown by.  My son is almost 20 lbs., he has 3 teeth and a 4th, 5th, and 6th coming in quick.  He's almost 9 months old.  He crawls.  He says dadadada.  He does all kinds of things that amaze me every day.  Being a dad is the hardest, most grueling thing I can imagine doing.  But it is so easy to do all those things for him.

I need to really make myself write in here more often.  I do enjoy doing it, and I enjoy reading the older posts, it's just so hard to find the time.  I vow to make a post in the next few days that break things down a little bit and help me remember some things.
