Earlier this month, Brooks broke his first teeth. Just a week before the 10 month mark! There were a couple days of sadness and pain, but he pushed through and now has two huge chompers to enjoy! And yes, they are CHOMPERS – big ones.
I always feel there are two kinds of baby teeth – the little ones and the big ones.
Little ones look good on babies – tiny, dainty little things, but as they get to the 4- or 5-year old mark, they look so tiny in their mouth.
Big ones look good on the little kids. They overtake their mouth as babies – you wonder how they fit in that tiny mouth. But they grow into them and by 4- and 5- years old, they actually are a good sized tooth.
I can say with certainty that Brooks has big ones! Man those puppies are big… and they grew in quick, one day they were a white speck and now two weeks later they are half grown in!
Two down and only about 12 more to go*!
*Gotta do “a range” in my family – since missing teeth is a common genetic flaw passed through our DNA!
