Bad things come in threes...

Poor R.. he is having a bad time of it. Just cut one tooth last week and the two tops ones started poking through today. That little guys is a drooling fiend!

Not to mention he got 2 shots on Friday. So he is working on getting over that and working on getting 2 teeth in now.

I have a bad bad feeling we are in for a few nights of hell... Thanks for the 2 nights of decent sleep this past week R. I was finally remembering what it felt like to not be a zombie.

Although R did sleep thru the night last night... I mean like 12 hours straight! That is a first for him (now I am racking my brains trying to figure out if there was a trick to it!).

DS tidbit: Some people with Down syndrome also may have a condition known as Atlantoaxial Instability, a misalignment of the top two vertebrae of the neck. This condition makes these individuals more prone to injury if they participate in activities which overextend or flex the neck. Parents are urged to have their child examined by a physician to determine whether or not their child should be restricted from sports and activities which place stress on the neck. Although this misalignment is a potentially serious condition, proper diagnosis can help prevent serious injury.
