What is the matter...


with our little red head?? I am not sure exactly what is going on with her but she has been "not herself" for the past several days! Ray called last Thursday and said that she woke up with fever and had been pretty fussy all day long! After I got home from work, she was extra CLINGY to me! I mean she LOVES her momma, but she NEEDED me that night! Friday, Ray called again and said that she had fever, snotty, pullin at her ear, etc. again and she was just sittin in his lap all day! UUUGGGHHH! I hate it when my babies don't feel good! After I got home it was very apparent that she didn't want to eat and cried when she tried to swallow anything (milk ,juice, food, etc) Saturday morning, MiMi came to visit us and we could tell that it was going to be another one of those days....Whining, clingy, fussy, in general just YUCK! And then out of NO WHERE the FLOOD GATES from her mouth opened up and she has been DROOLIN' like crazy!...Neither of my children were ever droolers...I mean, a little here and there but I never made them wear a bib because of excessive drool! Well, I have never in my life seen so much slobber...At one point, Brenly called out and said "Avery has got a lot of DRIBBLE again! (Dribble instead of Drool...too funny...and Dribble freaks Brenly out...she won't even let Avery drink from the same straw as her because of dribble!) So we now have come to the conclusion that Avery is cutting that last molar and it has caused her to be a GROUCH! We have been giving her Tylenol and just allowing her to be held all the time...Yesterday, we didn't even try to go to church because she was being that much of a nightmare...SO I laid her down for a nap at 11:00 and she slept until 3:45...and woke up a much happier child...We still had a little drool but nothing like the previous day, and we actually got to play with her! I am hoping that we are on the other side of feeling YUCKY and that that tooth will pop through REAL SOON!

P.S. this picture was from a few weeks ago when we were at Misty's house and she found these "Wiggle" slippers and put them on...She LOVED them and wanted them on at all times! Too funny...and it even looks as if she is posing with them on!


(and just a little side note for us...(because I use this as a journal for what she is accomplishing) She is starting to say so many things and trying to put words together to form little sentences...Granted the words are exactly correct, but enough to understand what she is tryin to say! The obvious, Mommy, daddy, BB (for Brenly), Mami(Lamby), ball, dog, es'mum(for yes mam...and even sayin it in the right context without being prompted!) es sir (yes sir) NO (she has that one down pat...and not necessarily with good intentions) baby, i own juice(for I want juice) i own go outs(I want to go outside), eeee (for whee, which is what she says when she swings, so ultimately eeee means swing!) bye bye, ank u (for thank you) use me(excuse me), she can count to 10 (and yes she misses a few numbers but for the most part has the sound correct!) ABC's(if we are singing them with her and again she doesn't say every letter, but sounds somewhat similar) Tries to sing Patty Cake(by herself and you cant really understand her , but because she is doing the motions, you know that is what she is "tryin" to sing) out pease(when she wants out her her seat (at the table or her car seat...which by the way, she still HATES to be in the car:( She LOVES her sister and gets lost when she is no where to be found...She will hold her hands out to the side and say er's BB? for Where's BB? She loves wearing other people's shoes, esp. Bren's. She will bring them to us and say shoooes and we will have to put them on her. She will hold her foot up in the air and say inky toes (for stinky toes!) (I am running out of things that she can say and know that there is more...so I will just continue to update this for us!)

UGH! I hate the whole cutting teeth thing! They just get so out of sorts and there is just nothing much you can do to help them!!

Avery is such a cutie! And she was SO posing in those slippers!!

I mean, how old is she, 12???? CJ only says half of those words and he is older, dadgumit! Bless her, I am glad she felt better after her LOOONNNGGG nap! I know you probably did!

Sorry you are going through the teething! Hopefully this will be the last one for a little while! Have you tried infant/children motrin? I love that stuff! It will knock things out that tylenol can't even touch.
