Growth Spurt, Teething, Colic...OH MY!

We know Audrey has colic...we knew that a long time ago. She's been extra fussy lately and I'm wondering if she's going through her 3 month growth spurt (if she hasn't already.) But over the weekend she became a drool monster! She sucked on her hands and fingers so much that they were soaked, as were her clothes. Totally adorable. I checked teething symptoms and it's looking pretty good:

drooling...check
irritability and fussiness...check check
refusing food...check
sleep problems...check check

She's actually good at night, still wakes twice to eat, but napping was pretty non-existent over the weekend (when she did fall asleep it wasn't for very long.) I'm wondering how long it will be before we see a tooth sprout up.

Jacob got his first tooth at around four months and had four teeth when he was almost six months. He was a fairly good teether and loved, loved, loved a wet washcloth. I'm sure she will do just fine!

Mason's doing the same exact thing! Except his sleep at night hasn't been that good. We went to the LC today to get a weight check and he was sucking on his hands. I tried to feed him and he refused. I hope this ends soon!

I sure hope that it isnt too painful for her. I think it is so horrible the poor little babies have to go through getting teeth! Thank goodness they will never remember the pain :)
PS. Let me know if there are any particular techniques you use during her colic times!

Philip started developing signs of teething around the same age. I was sure his first tooth was right around the corner but so far nothing. Just a lot of drooling over the past 4 months!

Good luck -- Hail's did the same thing for EVER it seemed and she didn't sprout anything until 6 months!! So don't get too discouraged if the drooling persists for quite sometime and everyone says "oh she's teething" and you see no teeth, they're in there somewhere :)
