Wee-est one is teething and appears to be pretty uncomfortable with this and other various reasons. :( He also is wanting more active attention, on his own, and with me. The icky part I am struggling with is he seems to get upset when I connect eyes with him-yikes the past two, three days. I am trying to be mindful of any "interruptions" I might cause in his own exploration of the world around him, as to not get in the way; he does NOT LIKE IT when I've obliviously picked him up when he's in the middle of observing our dog or some shadows the light is playing on his hands. -Also, he can't stand it when he is trying out grabbing, or rolling over, putting something in his mouth when some kind of adjustment is made if he's in the middle of learning it (makes sense). -But, I must say, I don't remember this with my first as much (getting upset or crying when I come into his gaze, or when there needs to be a shift of attention ). Different person/personality, I know, and new parts emerging everyday.... -Perhaps he senses my discomfort with his own discomfort. -And my insecurity of what's best to do?
P.S. Thanks for amber necklace recommendation for teething. This one has seemed to stave off the more intense upset from Babe.
