Lazy Days and Toothy Giggles

 I know, I know.  I haven't updated in forever.  I have no good excuse.  Well that may not be strictly true.  See my brain...its not really working right now.  I thought Memorial day was last Monday.  I thought my dad's birthday (Happy Birthday Papa) was next Monday.  I can't keep anything straight.  Why?  Well I could plead lack of sleep since Reagan still seems to think that waking up many times a night is the what all the energetic girls are doing these days.  But that's not really the case (though I am still tired, especially after the last two nights).  Pure and simple, I am still adapting to the new normal.  Not having to remember sixteen million (more or less) appointments to go to, and not having to worry about Reagan's health has left me lazy and unable to remember anything at all.  Not that I'm complaining!  But I really need to get my wits about me again :)  As for Reagan's health....the cardiologist said she looks great and will see her in six months.
 She is getting properly fat and is weighing in at 10 pounds 9 oz now.  As for these last two sleepless nights....you'd think I was a first time mom not figuring this one out (here I will plead lack of sleep foggy brain).  Symptoms:  Waking up MANY time a night to nurse, but not actually eating anything, just sucking.  Chewing on anything in sight from my knuckles to her toes.  Fussiness all day today with no real naps.  And then theres this.
And I realized the problem...baby girl is getting a tooth!  I have tried to tell all my girls not to get teeth.  Really the toothless grin is so cute and when you get teeth you have to brush them and go to the dentist.  But alas my toothless baby is growing up anyway.  Despite her discomfort, she always has a smile for me when I play with her.
 And for those of you who unlucky enough not to have met this charmer, here is a little video of her precious giggle and her newest skill.."talking"
