Henry has his first tooth! It's a little out of focus in the picture below, but you should be able to make it out.

We spotted it under the gum a few weeks ago and early last week it finally broke through. Grandpa Mandel won a fabulous prize (a batch of delicious cookies from Marla) for guessing Henry's big news first. They're on the way, Grandpa... promise! (Well, "on the way" as soon as Marla makes them!)

We can't leave Emma out, so here's her story of cuteness for the day. I had crawled under Henry's crib to lower the mattress since he's grown so much. Emma, of course, had to join me.

She wasn't actually much help (go figure) but it was nice having the company. I even got a kiss while working!

Emma Helps Daddy Work Daddy, You're Such A Man!

Anyway, after I had finished lowering the mattress and was putting the drawer back under the crib Emma looked at me and exclaimed,

"Oh, Daddy. You're such a man!"

If only all girls were so easy to impress!

Nice. After I fixed the toilet Sam just tried to cram a stuffed animal into it.

What do you guys do for teething? A friend recommends freezing a whole dill pickle and giving it to them to gnaw on, but we haven't tried that yet.

We actually don't have any tricks up our sleeves. Just alot of toy "eating" and drool. Sorry! We used Motrin at night with Emma(although I think the Motrin irritated her tummy more), but not a thing with Henry so far.
