I could sum this post up in one word (seriously): Teething.
Its not a fabulous jump up and down word. It doesn't make you smile, its just a word.
But to Mom's its more.

Teething: eruption of the deciduous teeth, esp. the phenomena associated with their eruption.

Its just that... a phenomena. Its an eruption. Not just of teeth but of emotions,Screaming and inconsolable pains. Thank goodness for Tylenol and Baby Oragel! (And those teething tablets- I'm not sure if they work or if it is just the idea that I am giving them these melting pills that are suppose to work. Is it possible that I could be giving them something that is working as a placebo for me?)

Bus's First tooth has broken through! YAY
Moose has one on the way- but not there just yet.
They both had the exact same tooth coming in. Funny how they are identical twins and the same tooth comes in at the same time. What are the odds of that? (or maybe that is the norm for twins but hey I'm new to this twindom still.)
They haven't been as bad as I am letting on- compared to the older two these teething babies are angels! But teething is teething no matter how you spin it!

Hey Try Freezing a bagel and giving them that when my 5 year old twins were teething it help so much they liked chewing on it and it was nice and cold so it helped with the pain!! I never really like giving them too much medicine so i always looked for natural remedies first they seem to do okay with that to be Honest it really numbs them up really good !! Give it a try you might find they like it Congrats though on first toothers that is so cool another mile stone they grow up so fast don't they??

YEAH FOR TEETH, sorry for the teething though! Ya know, I *think* they got the same tooth one right after the other. I try to block out the first year. LOL

Thanks for the hot mama comment!

Ugh. Teething. So glad the worst is over for us. My girls are now getting molars, but they don't seem to be bothering them (thankfully!). Babies are so cute with their little nubs poking through their gums!

Not a lot of fun!!! My twins are not identical and didn't get their teeth at the same time. I don't know if there is anything to do with it.

Oh Erin, I so hear you...I am shattered from all the pain and crying...I actually cried today. Poor things.

Teething, ugh with a capital "U". But it does eventually get better! And you won't have puddles of drool anymore! Lily and Eve each have 8 teeth, so we are cruising right along! I lived with orajel in my pocket for a while though!

Hope the boys feel better soon!

I love all the twin talk over there. Here too. And 4 boys! That's a lot of testosterone...

Good luck on the teething!

Well the first one is by far the first, so you are half way there with the bad part. These little babies of ours are quite the troopers.
