In the mouth

The molars are starting to bulge, so everything goes in the mouth these days, often all the way to the back of the jaws. Amusingly, he has taken to carrying chew-toys with him in his mouth like a puppy dog, especially when he needs his hands free for climbing.
He doesn't say them yet but he knows the words for mouth and teeth (and head, hair, nose, ear, toes, feet, hands, belly, belly button, arms . . . maybe others I'm forgetting.) We think he has understood the sign for "pain" so maybe we'll be better equipped to handle this round of teething. The eight teeth he has now weren't so bad when they came in (four on top and four on bottom) but I suspect molars might take longer and be a bit more difficult.
