A whole bunch of "firsts"

Lily is my thirdling. And what a cute little bug she is...




She's getting her firth toofy (FINALLY! I was starting to freak out. When I took her to the doctor for her 6th month visit, he disdainfully remarked, "Hmmm...no teeth..." And that was followed by some snerky-smug comment that she was too skinny. Did he not notice the fat rolls?? Of course I went home and looked up the average of when kids are supposed to get teeth and it ranged--on average--between 1 month and 18 months. Pretty big average.).



I don't recall Josh or Eva being particularly crabby when they were teething, but my little Lily has the patience of a saint.



She won't cry...



She won't crab...



She just sits and sucks her lip with wide eyes looking a wee bit sad...



"What's happening to me?" she seems to ask.


Sniff...



On the brighter side, I gave her an exciting experience:






The mighty Oreo.


What??! She was sad, and dang it, when you have a crying baby at Walmart, you darn well give that baby something to keep them occupied!



She loved every second of it!


She also had her first popcicle, but I don't have a picture of that. It wasn't messy, anyway. The best part of it was her screaming when Jeremy wasn't fast enough giving it to her. Ha ha ha!

Yeah, I have a friend who's baby was almost two years old before any teeth came out. It was like the teeth were stuck behind the gums, or the gums were too tight. Then one day, the baby started chomping on gravel, and all the teeth came out! I guess the baby knew that something had to happen, and since no one else was doing anything about it, took matters in their own hands. The next thing the parents saw was a whole set of teeth. No teeth, to a whole mouth of teeth.

You are lucky she has waited this long. Mark got his first teeth when he was 4-5 months old and nursing was not as easy afterwards. I am hoping that James won't get teeth for a long time!

Haha! The pictures look way better on the computer than on your phone!
Henry is taking forever with his molars.. hopefully he'll be done with them soon.

I love those pictures. It made me smile!! Jacob didn't get his first tooth until his first birthday so no worries. Doctors...
I love firsts too!!

For being smart guys, Doctors can be so dumb. Why do they like to make little mommies paranoid? Sadists?

Evan and Aislyn didn't seem to have problems with their teeth coming in... I know they were sad...

Allisa on the other hand was a nightmare. We were at Mom and Dad's for Thanksgiving and her teeth were coming in... Her gums were swollen and bleeding and she would just scream and cry. I sat on the kitchen floor with her in my arms crying with her because I didn't know what else to do for her.... :(

Firsts are fun. Some you will remember forever - others you will forget unless you write them down. :)
