Love bites

Poor Little Elvis. Not only does he have a goose egg on his noggin, he's also got a runny nose and a tooth that is refusing to come in.

Tooth number six has been sitting on the cusp for about two weeks now. I am very angry at this tooth. Whenever Little Elvis starts cutting a tooth, he sleeps less and bites me more.

He doesn't fuss so much during the day, but he wakes up at least twice at night when a tooth gets close to dropping.

And he gives me lots of love nips. Little Elvis thinks my chin is the best teething ring ever. But if I turn my head or pull back, he'll just as happily bite my jaw, cheek, neck or collar bone. Even though I say a stern, "No" when it happens, I've managed to make "Bite Mommy" a fun game for him. Whenever I say no and pull away, he smiles and coos quite happily.

I fussed about the biting a few weeks ago to Bob, and asked him what he did when Little Elvis bit him. Bob's response, "I don't LET him bite me." This snide comment irked me, but I didn't say anything. I knew that that little quip would come back to bite him.

And it did last weekend. My mom was in town and we decided to go to the National Zoo. Since Little Elvis was cutting tooth number six back then, (I REALLY don't like that tooth) he was chewing on whatever he could.
Bob was toting our sweet little man in our hip carrier, while my mom and I dawdled behind him. Suddenly Bob yelped and looked down at Little Elvis. Our little guy had given his Daddy a nice little love nip on his chest. Ha!
