First bite

Teeny Tiny is having an interesting week.  She's teething up a storm with a new molar and spewing massive amounts of baby goo from her mouth.  Yesterday, she walked for the first time rather than just breaking a forward fall with a step or two.  She walked about 4 steps from me to the couch.  You go girl!  No, wait, COME BACK!

And remember yesterdays post that mentioned no behavior problems, no biting?  That is no longer the case.  They were playing and Middie Biddie suddenly started her "I'm in real pain, not just fussing" crying.  I went and got her and pulled her into a snuggle and after a minute started inspecting her fingers thinking maybe she pinched a finger in a toy or something.  Then I felt slime on the back of her upper arm and there they were.  Two perfect teeth indentations.  No broken skin though.

It took about 2 minutes for her to be fine and to hop off my lap to go play some more.  There's now a ring of small welts so I guess Teeny Tiny got her full mouth around the arm.

I didn't see it happen, but considering she's teething pretty hard core, I don't think it was a mean bite.  I think the arm was just something she saw that might feel good if she bit it, so she did.  I'll be keeping an eye out though in case it was a bad behavior and not an honest oops.  I say this as she crawls by me carrying a teething toy in her mouth like a dog.

  1. Yikes! Those little teeth can be sharp (and painful). My son has his two lower teeth. I think they are adorable, until he chomps down on me!


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
