Croup and Teeth

Belle has been teething for what seems like 2 months now and one of the bottom molars FILALLY broke through Sunday! She is still drooling like a maniac and working on the other 3. It will be fabulous to be done with the teething for a little while, but thank goodness for teething tablets! She loves those things! She tells me in the morning and at night "tablet! tablet!" Maybe that's a bad thing??? Hey... whatever works! Don't judge me! :)

The Princess has also been having a nasty cough the last 3 or 4 nights (sounds very much like a bark) so I thought it might be croup. I took her to the doctor today and sure enough, she has croup. She also has very swollen tonsils, but no strep. I have a feeling she is going to be a kid with her tonsils removed. The doctor comments on how big they are every single time we go in and he does a strep test every time because they are so big... Let's hope it doesn't go to tonsil removal. Good news is, she will be on steroids for 3 days and I can already tell that it's helping. She has been asleep for over an hour and no coughing! Hope it clears up soon!

Oh - also - she is now 32 lbs 6 oz! Growing like a weed!

My kids both loved the teething tablets too - they are all natural - no harm done! :)

I hope Belle gets over her croup fast - poor little kiddo!
