I want to save the guest post response I have in mind for tomorrow because I think Sunday posts sometimes get missed in the Sunday night/Monday morning shuffle and those posts are important to me this month because I want to highlight and give credit to all of Tera's amazing and loving family and biggest supporters.
Yesterday we had the privilege of attending the Gigi's Halloween Party and I'm so glad we were able to make it. After having to stay home with Tera on Friday I wasn't sure if we'd be able to go but as more time passed the more it seemed evident that her biggest issue still is her teeth we hoped we'd be able to at at least show up for a little while. All the kids were dressed up, although there was only one Frankenstein, and we were able to catch up with some families we haven't seen in a while and just watch the kids be kids.

providing Tera with any relief the past few days
I oftentimes feel that when I'm writing these posts I don't have enough experience to fill 31 days worth of information, but as each day passes we have more and more experience and knowledge of what this means to us. Right now I know that the slowness with which their teeth come in, and the order that makes it hard to predict and know which ones are coming in, makes it excruciating for my little girl who can normally handle pain and discomfort better than the average adult. I know that when we're with our family and friends, she is just Tera and nothing more or less.
And I know for tonight, I'm exhausted and done.
