8 Months Old!

Alison is 8 months old today! I can't believe it. For her 8 month birthday she got something very special! A second tooth! right next to the first one!

We went to the doctor's office today. Alison started crying the moment she realized where we were. The last three times we have been there she has gotten a series of shots. I am pretty sure she thought she was going to get another shot today. (Luckily she didn't).

I explained Alison's condition to the nurse and we got some medicine, and no it wasn't oral medicine.... She also recomended that I get Alison some prune juice and some dry apricots to boil and then turn into a mash for her. Alison doesn't care much for apricots and she didn't care much for the way the medicine had to be administered but she was soon back in working order and was feeling much better.

This was not an uncommon face for Alison today. She is teething quite a bit and after having to go to the doctor's office, take medicine and eat fruit she didn't really seem to enjoy I can't really blame her for having a bad day.

Well, happy eight months Ali-Gator! Mommy loves you so much and I am so glad that 8 months ago you came into our lives.


  1. Poor Aligator. This is a stressful time for her and her parents. I do look at the blogs, just havn't had time to post a comment.
