Mommy Diary Take Two: 17 Weeks

April 18, 2014
Dear Asher,

This week has been a bit of a struggle for us. You have been fussy and inconsolable during the day; often crying and desperately gnawing on your fingers to relieve the pain you are definitely feeling from teething. You have so much drool your little chin gets raw if I forget to put your amber necklace on you. You just want to be held and nurse, you're not even napping very well or very long. Other than during a wonder week, this is the most fussy we have ever seen you. It breaks my heart there is so little we can do but keep you entertained.  You do love chewing on anything we give you: frozen toys and burp cloths are constant favorites. You also have gotten fairly automatic in rolling yourself, so much so that we cannot leave you unattended anywhere. You can flip yourself over in your car seat, rock'n'play bassinet, and swing if not buckled in. You do enjoy jumping in the Jumperoo now, especially when your brother talks to you--he can always make you smile, even now. It is awesome to see you two grin at each other all day.

Love,
Momma
