The Sweetest Things

At 22-23 months my Sweet Pea is getting her last 4 teeth, all of her "vampire" teeth! These last several weeks she has been waking many times during the night. I let her cry for a few minutes but I always find myself going to her rescue after about 10 minutes.

How can I not when she says the sweetest things:
"Mommy, mouth hurt"
"Mommy, rockie?"
"Ahh, see Mommy"
"Missed Mommy"
"Mommy's bed, please?"
"Medicine, please"

With a mouth full of teeth & her 2nd birthday approaching the realization that she isn't a baby anymore is hitting hard! Love you, Cora Mae!
