Teething Babies and Big Sisters

Otis has a tooth.  It's sharp.  Another one is on its way in, so he has been a basket case lately.  Nothing seems to work except nursing 24/7 and sleeping thisclose to me all night long.  Which means I am awoken by many little fists and feet thrusting their way into my face all night long.  Tired mama.  TIRED.  But to wake up to this is almost worth it.

Yesterday we went over to H&M to check out their kid's section.  I have gotten hand me downs from there that I really liked, but I have to say, I was not impressed.  They had some sweaters that were okay but nothing too great.  And the girl section sucked big time--tons of Hello Kitty and Minnie Mouse, not my cup o' tea...But they did have this hat for Otis.  He is such a little Irishman!

We went to the park yesterday morning, and it was freezing!  I am simply amazed how quickly our weather turned this past week!  Ingrid had fun on the swings and these little seats that spin around.  She looked so big on them, she's so lanky and tall and just not a baby anymore...

Today we are headed to the store to get goodies for camping!!  I'm so excited, totally not nervous like I was last time.  Well, maybe a little nervous, as Otis is having trouble sleeping.  But the fresh air will knock him right out, right?  Right?

Have you heard of Amber teething necklaces? They are very popular here in Europe.

They work by releasing natural oils when in contact with the skin. The oils have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. They are not for chewing on!

I got one for my little one when he started teething and it made him much more relaxed and he even started sleeping a bit better.

Also fans of teething necklaces in this house! Both my girls wore them and breezed through teething (but they might have done that without a necklace - who knows!).
Have fun camping. We love it.

Yay for teeth! Isn't it funny how one comes in and then boom—here comes the next one! I have seen those Amber necklaces, but never broke down and bought one. There are lots of different teething necklaces but they are so expensive! So I made one...soon to be on the blog :)

I did not know H&M had kids clothes!
