with my 5 mon old granddaughter who has just tossed up almost a full bottle of milk, is teething, and exhausted from crying. Nothing I do at the moment helps, except bouncing her up and down in my arm. Mom left her for the day so she could go visit friends as she is only here for a week visiting.

Funny how quickly you forget how dependant and needy these little ones are. And how hard it is when they just won't stop crying but how they can melt your heart when they cuddle into your neck, and coo and smile at you.

Bless all you moms out there with your little ones May the days of sick little ones be few compared to the wonderful times.

Laura, wish you had your little granddaughter without the teething and upchucking.

Whisper all kinds of stories about her mom in her ear....might calm her down because she will be taking notes.... :nah:

Laura, hope things settled down with your dgd. Poor baby.....seems I'm always excited if there is a visit where my dgd 5mos also, doesn't spit half her bottle up on me-or at least get me in one way or another! The teething is terrible-and the drool.......don't get me started. is definitely all worth it when they smile at you or sleep in your arms. I hope she settled for you and you were able to spend some special bonding time together!

5 months old. So sweet. I think I still vote for having them stay in one place as opposed to being everywhere at once, upchucking or not. Funny how quickly you get used to all that "gross" stuff. :re:

I'm sure you enjoy her..........Lennie

After a good 2 1/2 hour nap, finally, she is up and happy. She had a HUGE stinky you know what, which I think was part of the problem. So she just finished a 15 minute toot in the jolly jumper and she is so funny, she purses up her lips, blows out her cheeks and proceeds to make rude noises, raspberries I think they are called (when horses make them), left me and DH almost rolling on the floor laughing. What a character she is.
