It’s a drag

Based on his hands and knees rocking, we were sure that Curly would be crawling around 6 months.  Well, he’s not there yet, but he can get where he wants to, if he’s determined.  See evidence below.

Teeth are still not visible, but the poor guy has been miserable the past 2 days.  He whimpers like a tiny puppy and can’t seem to focus for more than a few seconds on any toy.  He’s still eating and sleeping well (knock wood) and can be distracted easily, but as soon as he loses interest in the distraction, he’s back to the whimpering.  We’ve been dosing him with tylen.ol and teething tablets and letting him gum cold things and nubby things.  We’ve thus far avoided dosing him with rum, whiskey, bourbon or any other alcoholic substance, as suggested by some friends.  We hope those chompers break through soon and Curly feels more like himself.
