saturday we had to run up to costco to get a few things. things like gallon jugs of olive oil, a 2 lb bag of quinoa, and a mega-size jar of costco-brand benadryl (don't ask). i generally find costco to be an unpleasant place with all the slow walking gawkers checking out the giant tubs of 500 pork ears, but it also serves a purpose, which is the pretty great deals. especially on a giant container of olive oil.
so, there we were. costco. saturday afternoon. the only benefit of that kind of situation is the free samples. so we ate the hell out of some free samples. well, mostly jon did. the ladies giving them out always kinda give me the heebie-jeebies. but i did eat some cake. at one point we passed one giving out craisins and thought hey! the jude can have some craisins! and so he did, and much joy was felt throughout the land as the baby was entertained by craisins and not by yelling.
after an eternity of slow walking traffic jams and endless glaring at everyone (by me) we pushed our cart with four things in it into the checkout line past heaping carts of bullshit and a guy buying two flat screen televisions. and jon reached over and fed jude a craisin. ...and got bit. by a tooth!
a tooth, blog, a tooth! finally, in month eleven, we have ONE TOOTH. sort of. the top of it anyway. he refuses to let us look at it, except when he forgot and was laughing with the big mouth and jon got a look in there and SURPRISE! he's actually getting two teeth. the two bottom ones. at the same time, in month eleven.
i always figured he'd get teeth at some point so it was somewhat comical that he is a slow teether. nothing we were worried about but funny, yes. now that there are finally teeth on the move... i'm pretty excited about it. not that it really changes anything... at all... it's just... exciting for some reason. shut up, ok? i know it's irrational. but it's also kinda fun. and sharp.
