Morgan's first tooth has finally showed up!
Her bottom right canine broke through her gum about 3 days ago. I had a feeling that it would be a canine as she kept sticking her fingers in her mouth, on the side, and munching on them. I noticed a small white dot on her gum and ran my finger over it to see if it may have been some milk residue. When I saw it didn't go away, I had the confirmation that it was indeed a tooth. I was so excited!!
I'll miss her toothless grins - but her having teeth to bare whilst grinning will probably be just as cute. If not cuter!
On another note...
This is my last week before going back to work. It is upsetting - I won't get to spend as much time with either Morgan or HSS. The first five weeks I'll barely see either one of them, then for a further 7 weeks following that, I'll see Morgan more but barely see HSS. Once these 3 months go by, things will improve, but it will still be very different to what life is like right now.
I got used to spending time apart to be honest - but knowing I can go back home to Morgan whenever I want helped me cope with not being with her 24/7. When we're not together, all HSS and I think about is Morgan. We end up wondering what she's doing, how she's feeling, what new thing she might have discovered... Now, I'll be missing out much more, and the worst bit is that I won't be able to go back home whenever I'd like to if it all becomes way too overwhelming.
This whole grown-up thing sucks at times.
This week, we should be starting the weaning process. I wonder how messy of a deal it will all be! I hope Morgan finds it interesting and not too stressful. I'm still unsure of what food I'll be starting off with to be honest - probably some baby rice or cereal or something. I'll have to go buy the stuff later. Or perhaps tomorrow. It depends entirely on how well I can walk [skinned my pinky toe. damned heels.] and on how warmer it gets throughout the day.
Everything is daunting right now. So many changes! So little time to deal with them all! And so little I can do to affect the outcome!
