While you may feel that 8 months of being the "happiest baby in the world" entitles you to a spell of grouchiness, we feel that you are taking this entitlement to the extreme levels. We do understand that the potential of new teeth can be irritating, however we ask that you find a way to manage this irritation a little quieter. If you fuss while being held or being laid down, please be advised that you will be laid down at some point in the evening. Also, we suggest any future nights-of-screeching be reserved for evenings when both parental units are in the vicinity.
Dear Natalie's Teeth:
Come through already. Or leave her alone. In the words of Dr. Seuss, "I do not like this, Sam I Am."

Dear Hyland Teething Tablets:
You are my superhero.
