No tooth :(

I feel like I am announcing everything too soon. I swear Jimmy sat up but hasn’t done it since although this morning he was super close. And, the tooth, where did it go? I swear I felt it but now it is gone. I hope he gets some teeth soon. It would be nice to expand his diet.

We went to the doctor this morning because Jimmy was up all night and I wanted to make sure it wasn’t something more than a cold. But, it’s just a cold. He seems fine after the morning hours but every time he is horizontal it’s like all the snot starts to clot and drain simultaneously and he is in hell.

Since I was up a lot last night with Jimmy I am now quite snippy. Poor Isa. She loves to make these high pitched sounds and I swear it’s like she is putting a knife into my brain. She can’t stop though. It’s the part of her DNA that she got from her dad. His sounds are much lower in pitch but other than that quite similar. ;)

After, I inhaled some caffeine and Jimmy went down for a nap, Isa and I made play dough and then played with it. Her creation is pretty awesome. What you would think are his/her legs are really his/her feet.

Great Play dough recipe

Basic ingredient ratios:
2 cups flour
2 cups warm water
1 cup salt
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon cream of tartar (optional for improved elasticity)

food coloring (liquid, powder, or unflavored drink mix)
scented oils

Mix all of the ingredients together, and stir over low heat. The dough will begin to thicken until it resembles mashed potatoes.

When the dough pulls away from the sides and clumps in the center remove the pan from heat and allow the dough to cool enough to handle.

IMPORTANT NOTE: if your playdough is still sticky, you simply need to cook it longer! Keep stirring and cooking until the dough is dry and feels like playdough.

Then add food coloring. Wash hands and play!


  1. Oh, I'm so sorry the little man is under the weather. That is so hard on mom... I am glad that it's just a cold though. If you need anything, don't hesitate to call. Those little teeth have a tendency to go back and forth before they pop all the way through, so there very well may be something happening...can you imagine how uncomfortable that must be for the little ones??? That, plus a cold, I feel for ya.

  2. Thank you Martha for the cute recipe! =)
