We had a close call with Bean last night. Hubby brought him over to me and I noticed he was drooling like a faucet. Wet face, big wet splotches on his jammies. He rarely drools much, even when teething. I commented on it, so Hubby stuck a finger in his mouth to feel for a new tooth. Instead, he found something foreign in Bean's mouth. He quickly flipped him over and whacked his back. Nothing. So he reached in and swept around. Bean gagged, puked, and out came a little twiggy-looking thing. He was fine.
We still don't know what it was. Maybe the dog or Hubby tracked it in? Peanut and I took our shoes off before going in the "baby safe" area of the house, so I don't think either of us brought it in. I have no idea where he picked it up. It's so hard to be vigilant.
Bean is smart, too. Part of his free-range area includes the hallway to the guest bath, office and the kids' rooms. Peanut's door doesn't latch unless it's pulled firmly shut. Bean knows to sit in front of the door and push/whack on it to check if he can open it.
