It’s 3:50 am and I have been awake with the Amazingly Inconsolable Ruby since 1:30.
It’s been a long night.
According to the pediatrician, Ruby has four teeth coming in. I feel like she’s been teething for eons, and yet no teeth have appeared. The doctor says that baby teeth often move back and forth in their mouths before they ever pop through, so that’s probably why she’s had such a hard time.
At about 3, Kyle took a bath with Ruby. Now I’m up with her while she plays and chews on toys to keep her mind off of how grouchy she is. The only upside to this coin is that when she is up in the middle of the night like this, she will also generally sleep in. I’m kind of counting on that, or tomorrow’s going to be a very, very long day.
