Good News

Clayton's rash looks better for the second day in a row! He is pretty much weaned during the day and then nurses at night. Cutting out the night nursing is going to be much harder. He always itches more at night and sometimes nurses for comfort more than food and it means more work for me in the middle of the night. Lately I've been falling asleep when he nurses, but I can't do that with a bottle. Oh well, I want his rash to keep getting better and I want to eat what I want again without feeling like I'm poisoning my son if I eat something I shouldn't. He has been grumpy the last two days and a little feverish but I think he's getting another tooth. Clayton, by far has been my grumpiest teether. With Hannah and Ivan they'd be a little grumpy or more tired for a few days and you'd happen to look in their mouth and see a new tooth, Clayton not so much. He's miserable and he lets you know. So now I must go and try and comfort him a little.

Clove oil? How does one suggest a teething cure when he's allergic to everything?! Agh! Still, love you both, and you're a good mom, Em. You amaze me.
