So I recently called Alex a little seal but I think I have changed my mind. I now think of him as a beaver, yes I said a beaver. Let me explain, it is 3 am this morning when Alex is up in terrible pain teething and I decide to try and nurse him to calm him down while Jason gets his medicine. At first he refused to nurse but after a minute he gave in.

Now let's switch from my story to another story for a minute and then we will come back. Click on the Beaver Story link below to check out this clip from when Jeff Foxworthy was on the Rachel Ray show. If you have heard this story you will sadly know where I am going with this one.

Ouch right? Okay so back to my story. I think I will be weaning Alex sooner than I had planned. He latched on and would not release. Ouch!!! Instantly I thought of the Beaver story. I heard it hurts when they bite but honestly I had no clue.

Any resemblance between the two? I guess not! Don't you love the mess one biscuit can make.

Oh you poor thing! Did you have to have it re-attached? Hahahaha.

Unfortunately, I can relate...many, many, many times over. Maybe we can support each other through the weaning thing, because I think I am done...ya know, six teeth and all:o)

Hi Shari! I got your e-mail almost a month ago and meant to answer it, but it got buried! Thanks so much for commenting so I could find your blog! That little Alex is the cutest thing ever. I love his hair! I recently visited my sister at SU! and realized I only knew ONE SAM! But I'm so glad you are able to stay home. What a blessing. I LOVE it!

Anyway, I'm going to add you to my friends list on my blog if you don't mind. It's so fun to catch up with you!
