My Dear Son,
The time has come, Alhamdulilah! Bring on the pancakes! 🙂 That first little tooth is finally emerging. Yesterday, you put my finger in your mouth, as you sometimes do, and there it was, a pointy piece of a bottom tooth. 🙂 InshaAllah, we hope to meet Mr. Tooth No. 1 soon. I don’t know how long it takes to shoot out, but I’m guessing around a week.
Yesterday, you were fine, Alhamdulilah, your normal happy self. Today, though, I can see the symptoms coming. You’re clingy, a bit crabby, restless yet very tired, and feverish. Last night you didn’t sleep well and you’re refusing to let me put anything on your gums, but, Alhamdulilah, you still open your mouth for some biscuit snacks and, Alhamdulilah, you accepted a bit of oats this morning. But, overall, it seems the breasts are the ultimate soother, Alhamdulilah. May Allah, Most Compassionate, make this an easy and quick time for you, my baby, Ameen.
