Top lip

Ayla’s ulcers have spread to her top lip now and she’s so miserable!

It looks so painful and it’s certainly not attractive.

I was really hoping the cream the doctor prescribed would have worked by now, and I’m crossing my fingers it kicks in soon!

Hand Foot and Mouth has been ruled out as the cause, and it’s been put down to Ayla simply being run down.

She certainly hasn’t had a good run, poor baby, but I am so lucky and feel so fortunate that Ayla is a happy, easy going little trooper.

My turn

Tuesday, 3 June 2014: One Year and Sixty Four Days Old.It was my turn to stay home with Baby Ayla today.

Ayla still had a fever this morning and was very very clingy, so I couldn’t bring myself to dump her at day care.

While the morning was spent cuddling her in my arms, around 10am Ayla went down for a sleep… For FOUR hours.

She must have needed it, poor bubba, and I felt like I’d won lotto with a whole four hours to do things around the house!

When Ayla woke up from her sleep however, she was just as miserable as before, if not moreso.

She didn’t have a temperature but Ayla was obviously in pain; squinting her eyes, hitting her head and crying unconsolably.

I think it might be teething, although I though teething was supposed to get easier the more teeth kids gets.

Ayla was drooling like crazy and I had to change her shirt, and by the time Hubby got home Ayla couldn’t shut her mouth.

One half of me hopes to goodness it’s teething and nothing more sinister, but another part dreads twelve more months of seeing my girl in agony!
