Teething is the devil

Blake has officially been "teething" since she was about 3 months old...she's now 5 1/2 months old.  What do we have to show for it you might ask?  Several sleepless nights, 2 teeth that are only 1/3 of the way in, drool fest 2010, fussiness and wasted money on all possible teething remedies to find that none of them work!  I truly thought we were going to be ok with this whole teething debacle a month ago.  She had 2 nights where she woke up once and then the teeth broke thru the gums and I thought to myself, "that wasn't so bad!"  That was where I screwed up - I thought I had beat the system!  As all things in my life tend to go it went downhill rapidly! haha.  My sweet girl went from sleeping 12 -13 hours a night to sleeping about 3 hours a night.  The past 3 nights I have gotten up with her pretty much every hour from 10:30pm on.  Needless to say I am deliriously tired, very frustrated and wanting nothing more than sleep!  I feel bad for her b/c it's obvious she's in pain as well, but give me a friggin' break here!  Elizabeth Sparks said it best, "Isn't it bizarre how in the beginning you got WAY less sleep than you are getting now with her waking up...but once you get used to your baby sleeping - you don't want to give it up!?!?"  It blows my mind that I was able to function at all in the first 6 weeks of her life when she was basically up every 2 hours...I have been so spoiled these last few months!  I want my sleeping baby back!!!!
