"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

I don't know if you can tell what this is so try and guess. Okay, to easy, it's wood. It's actually how Caroline's crib looked when we bought it even up until oh say Christmas. Beautiful, shiney, smooth, just plain gorgeous, right!

And this is how her crib looks now. Her little tic tacs (teeth) grew into little chichlets and viola! She has gnawed the finish including the wood right on off. I was a little tee tiney upset (not at her at myself for not protecting the finish) about it at first but now its her trademark! Sam said he could one day re do it but we'll leave it! Her crib converts into a big girl bed too so it might not be lasting as long as we previosuly thought!
Little did I know that they made teething guards for these purposes (if this is the only thing at Babies R US that I didn't know about then I'm doing pretty good)! We have purchased them but haven't yet put them on. She no longer teethes on the crib, but then again we didn't know she was doing it in the first place. She's so quiet when she wakes up in the mornings and the first time we woke up and saw this she had bits of wood everywhere, it was on her face and hands too! Those itty bitty teeth...gotta love them!

We had the same problem:). We bought the gummy rail and problem fixed:). The first time I caught her doing it her hands, face, and mouth were covered in a black wood dust. Poor cribs!
