6mths~sitting up~cutting teeth!!!

When I last posted about Addie's 6mth check-up, she was teething and almost sitting up on her own. Well, she has since cut two bottom teeth and is now sitting up well on her own. She loves to sit up and play with her toys! Something else that she loves is her jumparoo. We've been putting her in the saucer since she hasn't been able to touch in the jumparoo. Now, she can touch and loves it! Several weeks ago, I came home from work and Scott was playing with Addie(he keeps her 2days a week). He said watch what Addie can do now. He put her in the jumparoo and she started jumping and having a ball. It was too funny:)

I had also written before about Addison waking up during the night @ about 5 1/2 mths. Thought it was just habit, but later found out it was the beginning of the teething process. It wasn't too bad then. You cld feed her a little or pat her bottom to get her back to sleep. That lasted til around 6 mths or so. She later cut the two bottom teeth and started sleeping thru the night again. That lasted a few weeks until now. About a week ago, she did fine thru the night, but was cranky during the day...not like her at all! Not too much was making her happy. I assumed it was the teething...u can always blame it on that!LOL Even the babysitter noticed the difference. Anyway, for the past few nights, she has been waking again. A few nights ago, it was just restless sleeping and seemed ok. The next night, it was pretty much the same thing, but got more sleep that night. Last night, it was horrible!!! She hasn't cried this much since she was 3 months old with reflux! Of course, Scott was at work and I was home by myself. It started around 9:30 and continued on and off til about 3:00 that morning. Nothing really works when she's that upset. She finally stopped crying and went back to sleep after another dose of Tylenol and some teething gel...that's when Scott walked in after it was all over! I noticed a bit more of her whites showing this morning so I guess they were cutting through more. She's done fine today so I'm hoping the worst is over until next time:) If anyone has any suggestions besides the norm, please LET ME KNOW!!!
She's having her 6mth pics done on Monday so I'll be posting them soon!

Here's a video of Addie in her jumparoo

Here are a few of my favorite pics of her sitting up...
This is when we first realized she could do it.

She looks so cute in her outfit and new bow.

This was taken at Mrs. Kelly's house.

These were taken last weekend at Nana's house.


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the teething tablets!!!! I don't use the gel at all. Havn't had to use much of anything on Maggie yet but, Hannah had a horrible time gettting her teeth and I started using these after someone told me about them. I know that you can get them at Wal-Mart and Kroger. They work great-it even says on the bottle "don't be alarmed if your child goes to sleep after you give them a dose"! Let me know if you have trouble finding them. I would go get some tomorrow! It is like the miracle drug-you just pop 2 in thier mouth and it does the trick.

  2. I have heard the tablets work great!! I have never used them, but a friend told me about them the other day. Kaylor does the same thing when she is teething, she wakes up in the middle of the night!! Then a tooth breaks through a couple of days later and she then continues to sleep through the night. But I have heard the tablets work great!
    Addison is getting so big and she is so cute!!
