It's 11:57 and Penelope just fell asleep. She was up at 8 this morning (and up at 2 & 5am last night). This is quite unlike her, and I'm going to blame it on teething. She's also started drooling more, and has something in her mouth almost constantly; although she's not really a fan of the plastic teething toys, she prefers cloth.
Christina suggested that I wet a washcloth & put it in the freezer for awhile to get it pretty cold and let P gnaw on that. I tried it with cool water & she seemed to like it, so we'll try the frozen one too. I hope it helps!
I also gave her some homeopathic teething medicine. I'm not exactly a big believer in homeopathy (I think it's more of the placebo affect than anything else), but if they work for Penny then I'll have to reevaluate my stance. My midwives tried homeopathic meds when I was in labor and it didn't do anything for me, but I was also convinced that it wouldn't work - so there's that.
Ok, I'm going to try and get some homework done while she's asleep (she's in the Moby, which makes it slightly more difficult but not impossible).
