WOW! No pun intended. It’s finally here!
I was hosting a WOW meeting (Women of Wisdom) last night while Patrick looked after Nicholas, down the hall. About an hour into the meeting, I heard Nicholas start to squawk, and figured that Patrick would calm him down within a few minutes. 20 minutes later, the cries started to escalate … you know the sound, parents … from “I’m frustrated” to “now I’m mad”. I thought I’d go in and see if he was hungry.
But, when I wandered down the hall and stuck my head in the door (trying desperately not to look like I was “hovering” in any way), I was greeted by a screaming baby and a beaming daddy! Beaming?!? Was he losing his mind?!?
No … he’s just the very proud papa of a baby with his first tooth poking through the gums! We tried to take a picture of it today, but I think it had pulled back into the gums. Poor little guy – he’s in quite a bit of pain now and drooling up a storm!
