Closer we are to fine

We are facing that age-old Phantom Menace of Babydom: Gettin’ Teef.  Rosie has been somewhat frantical these days shoving whatever she can get her mitts on into her mouth to soothe the ache of the slow and sharp shift of enamel up her gums.  And the drool, oh the DROOL.  Rivers and tributaries and streams of droooooool.  I am considering wearing a preventative poncho when holding her.  I’m only sort of kidding.  Also, there’s the Not Sleeping, which right now is making me feel sort of like I’ve been taken out at the knees with a crowbar.  Just this morning in the shower I attempted a nice deep clean of my face with a slather of conditioner.  On the bright side, now my pores are tangle free!

But poor little poopster, she can’t really do anything to help it feel better, and I know it’s uncomfortable and kind of ever present.  And I’ve been dosing her up with Tylenol every once in a while and offering a frozen teething ring, but then I got to feeling like I could do more than that, you know?  Take it to the next level.  Get creative with the homeopathics.  And what would work better as a nice salve than a little Indigo Girls?  So off to the CD release concert we went.

Waiting for the show (also, remember this picture?  Holy cow, deja vu.):

Waiting for the Girls

The Girls, up close and personal:

Rosie experiences (live) IG sound for the first time:

Checking out the Girls

Whoa.  I dig this sound, Mom.

Diggin’ it

And of course, a sing along.  I didn’t capture it, but Rosie did add her own vocals, as she is wont to do.  Also, notice my zoom in on my friend Jill, whose idea the concert was in the first place, as she is somewhat of an Indigo Girls stalker:

Teeth pain ain’t got nothing on good times like these.

Um, I thought that song had lyrics about a boat and water in one’s undies.

This day may have been the highlight of my entire life. And for those who don’t know me, I have lived a WILD, WILD life, so this is a v. big deal. And I got to see you twice this week! Bonus.

You should show her pics of Amy’s plaid pants when she’s teething…they always soothe my pain.

I couldn’t be more jealous. Of your teething baby. Indigo Girls live=a little bit of heaven.
