Bethie has a....


She cut her first tooth on Friday, one day before her 4-month birthday. Her second one will be coming soon and she's having a much harder time than Hannah did. She's got drool, a fever, drool, fussiness, drool, a runny nose, drool, a cough, drool, diarrhea, and oh yeah, drool. We had a rough night last night - I was up with her from 2:30 until about 5:30 (she dozed a little, I didn't). She's sleeping quietly now, but I'm holding my breath to see how the rest of tonight goes. So keep her (and mom!) in your prayers that this phase will pass quickly. Thanks!

Sleepless in St. Louis


  1. Yay, a tooth! When did Hannah first start getting teeth? I think Anya's first was 7+ months!

    I hope you guys sleep better tonight!

  2. Hey Kerri!
    Hannah got her first tooth right around 5 months, so a month later than Elizabeth. Last night was much better - she slept pretty peacefully until about 6:30 this morning. The second tooth has yet to break through, though I can see it getting ready. We'll probably have another few bad days soon, but we'll just take it one day (tooth) at a time. Thanks for posting!
