teeth and stuff

Gerald now has four teeth.

Yesterday I was sure it was only three, but there are most definitely two teeth on top. This explains why he hasn't been sleeping very well (he ends up in our bed EVERY night), or napping very well, general crabbiness, and his new binky-addiction.

Swimming class is going well, he's having a lot of fun in the water, and so am I! I signed up for some aerobics classes at the Y this session - yesterday we tried the day care out again. He did great, played in the baby section and then watched the big kids. I think being away from him for an hour was good for me. Mon and Wed are tough - J bowls those nights and it's really hard not to resent him (just a little) for being able to come home, change his clothes and leave right away, and then not return until after Gerald has gone to bed. Don't get me wrong, I love staying home and being with Gerald, but when the day has been challenging....

Tomorrow is trick-or-treat for us. I made Gerald a Frankenstein's Monster costume - it turned out pretty cute!
