Teething? Maybe?!?

David and I have been noticing more and more drool bubbling out of Lucas over the last couple of weeks. It's hard to say that he's really been any fussier... because of him being sick, but I am quite suspicious of teething today. Usually, I can calm him down when he is upset without much difficulty, but today... he wasn't sleepy, didn't want to play/ swing, wasn't hungry.... and I just knew something was bothering him. I had already washed his teethers and stored them in the fridge for one day when we needed them, so I grabbed one out and held it up to his mouth. He LOVED it... he couldn't get enough; he did some serious gumming! I felt around in his mouth and didn't feel any protrusions. He seems awfully young, but could this be the beginnings??

Lucas just looks adorable! I know he has loved this mommy time with you! I am SO very glad his fever is gone!

Thomas and Maddy are drooling lots too....but no real teeth. They constantly chew on fingers and hands...I call them McFingers.

I have read they can break through from 3 months to 8 months so it is just a wait and see I guess. Keep me posted on him....his smile is contagious!
