adoption comments

The first couple weeks after we brought Shiloh home it was hard to not tell most people she was adopted (not that it's a secret). We'd be out somewhere and people would constantly comment on how well I was getting around so soon after her birth and I didn't know what to say so I would just blurt out, "oh, we adopted". Every person we told seemed to think that was just great! We heard "oh, well that just makes her extra special" or comments like "well, isn't that just wonderful". However, the other day while at the doctor's I heard a somewhat original comment that kind of caught me off guard. As I said, I was at the doctor's and the nurse was in the room with me looking at Shiloh and asking various questions about her. I don't remember what it was that she said that made me feel compelled to tell her of Shiloh's adoption but when I did she said "Oh....well, that's not so bad". I just looked at her and smiled and thought, huh? I'm still not sure what she meant by it.

On a different note, I think Shiloh has definitely started the teething process! Yay....not really. We thought she was going to be an early teether because the girl has been drooling like something else since she was two months old. Now though, not only is she drooling (even worse now) but she has also become extremely fussy the last couple days and she just can't stop gnawing at her little hands. Last night she was up til a little after 1 am fussing and she woke up at 6:30 this morning kind of fussy. I hope she is teething because if she's not I don't know what to do!

Awww, poor baby. Teething sucks. I mean, I know we need teeth and all, but couldn't there be an easier way to get them???
