Teething is awful!

First off, I can't believe Coraline is already 5 months old! Where did the time go? Second, she's been teething for about 2 weeks now and it's been rough. Poor thing is constantly irritable and wakeful at night. We were finally enjoying her sleeping through the night and now we're back to square one again. She sobs her heart out at night when the pain is the worst and sometimes clenches her mouth shut which is frustrating because I can't give her Baby Orajel or tylenol until she opens up. It's heart-breaking to watch her suffer. I know it's only temporary and she'll get through it just fine but it's hard on me and Chris when all we want to do is make her feel better. So far, the result of so much pain has been the emergence of two, sharp, little, bottom teeth.
