dummy's, teeth and crawling!

Two weeks ago SP and I decided we were going to get rid of 'A's dummy. He only had it for his 2 or 3 day sleeps but he was also only sleeping for 45 mins at each sleep. I thought getting rid of the dummy might mean he slept for longer chunks.. We decided to go 'cold turkey' and it was quite painful for the first week but slowly but surely it took less and less time for him to get to sleep by himself. He has also managed to have several longer sleeps some days BUT some days he also only sleeps for 30 mins which is less than when he had the dummy - GRRRRRR! I have no real issue with using a dummy but I think if it ends up being more of a hindrance than a help then it is time to say adios. We got rid of it at night after England for that very reason, getting rid of it at night was much less painful than in the day... Now I would love to get more consistent sleeps out of my little one and try to resettle him after the 30-45 min naps...

I think one of the reasons why 'A' has been a little bit out of sorts this last week and maybe sleeping less in the day is because of his teeth. At the ripe old age of 9 months he finally got his first tooth, (note: I was 13 months when I got my first tooth, I was practically bold and toothless, and the small amount of hair I did have was this ORANGE, how very sad) it was quite a non-event really other than 'A' drooling like a dog over a juicy bone, BUT then tooth numero 2 has started appear beneath the gum and it seems to be causing our little man some grief - and us for that matter!!!! Mum if you look really really really closely you might be able to see a tooth, it ain't easy trying to take a picture of it!!!

Anyway other than that little (or should I say) big 'A' is doing well. Still nowhere near crawling, he prefers toys and people to come to him, so very lazy.... Maybe one day, hopefully before school he will decide that getting around on your hands and knees or even your feet for that matter has it's perks. getting into cupboards, following Mummy and Daddy wherever they go, eating DVDs - the list is endless really. Gee I hope he doesn't read my blog to get all sorts of naughty ideas!!!!!
