zero teeth two days ago for Olivia. Then yesterday one poked through on the bottom, and today the one next to it came through.
Emily has her first tooth! A little front/bottom tooth is poking through this morning. I had a dream last night that Olivia had a tooth (probably because she was unconsolably crying all night and this morning)… but turns out it was Emily! We’ll try to get a picture soon.
…is my two front teeth. Well, one of them at least. The first week in December I got a phone call from the boys school telling me that Nathan had gotten into an accident in gym class. Apparently he had tripped over a ball and hit his front teeth off the ground. There was a lot of bleeding so the school felt like they should call us to let us know incase we wanted to go to the dentist. I ended up driving to school to check up on him and took him home for the day. Now, that tooth is starting to turn black. It is definitely dying.
I can see why kids get “practice” teeth. Hopefully it stays in his head for a few years until he’s ready to start losing the baby teeth. I think it’s time to schedule their first dentist appointment!
It’s been a fun last few days at the DeLuca household. Both boys are teething. Nathan is getting two teeth next to his upper two middle teeth and Anthony is getting his first upper tooth (left one). It’s sad that we can’t do much to ease their pain but it’s also exciting that the boys are on their way to completing a toothy smile.
Tonight I went to feed the boys some meat. I always heat it up in the microwave for a few seconds before I give it to them because they like it better that way. When I took it out, I tested to make sure it wasn’t too hot with one of my fingers. Then I put my finger in Nathan’s mouth to try the meat. I felt something sharp! Nathan has his first tooth poking through! I don’t know why I am so excited but it seems like such an exciting milestone. He’s been gnawing on a lot of toys lately, now I know why.
I took a picture which I’ll try to attach to this post later.
