Tooth update

James has been teething up a storm the last few weeks.  In 10 days he cut 2 molars and 2 lateral incisors.  He has been dealing with the pain fairly well.  Sometimes Rhonda will give him something for the pain around lunch time and we usually give him some Tylenol at dinner.  Before bed we've been rubbing his gums with Oragel to help him fall asleep.  He's pretty pathetic when he's moaning in bed because his teeth hurt.  When you go into his room and pick him up, he immediately snuggles into your chest and sighs.  Again, no clue where this kid got his theatrical abilities from, but you can't help but feel bad for the little guy.  So we're up to 9 teeth in total!  With the way things are going right now, I wouldn't be surprised if the remaining 7 baby teeth show up soon.  And then we'll be onto 2 year molars, so the teething will never end!
