The teething never ends

When you have 2 kids in your house 16 months apart, teething really doesn’t ever end. When R arrived, L had 8 teeth, since then we have gotten the canines and the first round of molars -- both of which are not fun.

Then it was R’s turn. I swear he started teething at 3 months and finally the first tooth popped through at 6 months. A month later -- 3 teeth come within 10 days. To say that was rough is the understatement of the century.

Now both R and L are teething. R is working on the remaining four front teeth -- the top two seem to be in the lead, but it is likely that all four will also make a similar race to the finish appearance in a short amount of time. L is working on his second set of molars.

So my house has two kids who like to shove various items into their mouths and chew.

Unfortunately that also means that R likes to chew when he nurses. Those teeth are SHARP!
I am looking forward to all teeth coming in and this teething nonsense to stop.
