Lest I Forget

Ellie did something about a week ago that was so sweet I don't want to forget it.  You all get to hear the story and I get a record of it.  Win-win.

Maya had been teething for several days and the top right tooth just didn't seem to want to break through.  The other three hadn't been much of a problem.  At dinner we were surprised when Maya starting shrieking and crying for all she was worth.  I knew it was the tooth.  I'd been watching and waiting for it.  I just didn't know it would be this painful.  She was shaking with the pain and the screams.  It was pretty heartbreaking.

I ran to find the tube of Baby Orajel to numb up those sad little gums.  Ellie followed me and asked what I was doing.  I said, "I'm looking for something to help baby Maya feel better."  About then I found the tube and dashed off to take care of my baby's pain.  

Just as I finished applying the Orajel we noticed Ellie walk in the room.  "Help Maya," she said.  Then Ellie stretched out her arms and held out a bottle of baby Tylenol in one hand and a medicine dropper in the other. It was the sweetest thing.  I don't think I've ever been more proud of her.  Now I just need to move the medicine.  Apparently Ellie knows where it is and can get to it herself.
