Dear Alice- 22 Weeks

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Dear Alice,

Your tooth is really coming through now! You are biting everyone and I can't help but laugh at your rather aggressive looking face. My goodness, you have an aggressive face sometimes! but I think it means that you are a very determined little baby, and that's ok by me. I am so proud of the fact you have a tooth coming through that I could actually cry! When you smile, I can see it poking through which is just adorable.

What's not adorable is your constant crying and screaming that comes with it all though. I know it's because you are in pain with your tooth, but oh my god! I had no idea a baby could cry so much. And so loudly! And non stop! Arghhhhhhhh! Yesterday you literally screamed for an hour. A whole hour. I didn't know what to do, nothing calmed you down. I felt myself getting more and more wound up until I actually thought I was going to cry myself. Luckily this time I had my mum there to take you for half an hour or so to calm you donw, which you did. Eventually. But I have to say, it was tough tough tough. No one says motherhood is easy!

You routine is getting better now. You are on 3 meals a day (3 very small meals with lots of milk in between) and 3 naps now. I always thought a baby would just nap when they were tired, but you dont! In fact, it's taken me about 2 weeks to encourage you to take a couple of naps in the day, which are really needed. Now that you are rolling over all the time you get tired very quickly. And hungry. Oh, and irritable.

I am beginning to realise that the first 2 months of your life were relatively easy! Still... your smile and giggle makes it all worth while! Haha!



  1. I love your blog! Thanks for commenting on mine too :) I will definitely follow you! xx

  2. Oh dear! What are you using to help her wee tooth? I just started using neurofen; he takes a mad 1/2 hour then crashes its really weird but it lasts 6 hours, unlike the 4 that calpol does. Heres hoping she gets a break from the pain soon! Xo

  3. ohh god . the baby is so cute :)

    I like your design blog :)

  4. Look at those beautiful big blue eyes! I just got my first little niece and love her to death I cant imagine how multiplied that is when you have your own baby.

  5. Ahh bless her, hope the teething pain eases up soon - not sure if you will have already tried them but we swore by Ashton & Parsons powders and an amber teething necklace, though apparently the hazelwood ones are even better :) x

  6. omg so cute! I remember when my little cousin had her first tooth coming through, she was the same and wouldn't stop crying. I still thought she was cute though haha:)
