Not Toothless for Long

So, we're soon going to miss the toothless grins from our little man. He's actually teething now. --even though people have said, "He's probably teething" for about six months now. The start of his front right tooth is coming through. This was also evidenced by his lack of a nap yesterday afternoon. Our Daycare provider said he was up every 15 minutes crying and then back down. We were bracing for the worst last night, but he only woke up once @ 1:30am. I gave him a bit more Orajel and he went back down after some squirming and fussing. Poor little guy. We hope this is short lived -for both him and us. And that we don't have many of the horrible nights that people always tell/warn us about!

Overall, Tryg is a wonderful baby and we really can't complain too much. Literally EVERYDAY either Erik and I will tell the other how much we just love him like crazy and how he really is just a sweetheart! We also talk about how cute he really is...Yes, we're biased, but he really is a cute little guy even if we do say so ourselves! :)

*We'll try to get a picture of his first tooth as soon as he'll let us.

One of Those Weeks...

So, if you're actually looking at our blog (instead of Google Reader or something like that), you'll notice that I've added a Graduation Countdown Timer! I was doing pretty well. Well, I guess that depends on how you define "pretty well." But I was at least OK with being in grad school, Erik being in grad school, both working 40+ hours a week and raising our 7 month old son....but then I think something just snapped last week. I don't know if it was the 10 page paper due last Tuesday, the additional hours added to my job, the realization that my Capstone Project needs to be done in about a month or that Erik's classes started back up after a long Christmas break. However, I do know that there is a large weight over my head and tension in my shoulders.

I know I'll make it...I just need to pull through. I have a lot of people supporting and encouraging me. I also know that there are a lot of people, including Erik, who are going to kick my @$$ if I don't finish. It's just that it seems like a lot right now.

May 21, 2011 cannot come soon enough...but, I guess in some sense I don't want to wish that time away though. You see, Tryg keeps growing up faster than ever and I don't want to miss one more second than I have to with my BABY. Just last night I found myself looking at photos and videos of him at the hospital the day he was born. He's grown up so much! But he's still my little peanut and always will be! After May 21st I'll be able to devote much more time to him and I am so happy for that. In the meantime, I'll cherish the moments I have.
