Got Teeth?

I've had this draft saved for a while about how my five-year-old and my five-month-old have teeth coming in at the same time. Woo Hooo; loads of fun attitudes around here!

Madison has her bottom 6-year-molars coming in on both sides. And we're pretty sure Cora has her first teeth coming in... she's the drooling-est baby and chews on ANY thing and EVERY thing she can get close to her little mouth. Plus she's not so happy. And she's a happy baby. So I hope it's teeth.
why, yes, that's drool coming from Cora's sweet mouth!

But then, our big girl lost her first tooth!! Actually, it was pulled out by one of our favorite people, Erica, on our trip to Tulsa (my next post).

Mad had eaten some corn on the cob a week or so prior and accidentally bit into the corn holder -- immediately causing her tooth to bleed and her to cry. She wouldn't let me touch it for a day or so; I think it really bruised her little mouth. When she finally let me touch it, we tried to pull it but it wasn't quite ready.

We hadn't been in Tulsa for 30 minutes when Maddie was nodding a fervent YES to Erica's question of "would you like me to pull it?" And voila -- here's our girl. She looks even older to me now!!

That night the Tulsa Tooth Fairy left a gold dollar coin -- with president James Madison on it. Our Madison thought that was the coolest thing EVER!

I pretty much think she's the coolest thing EVER.

Huge milestone!

Congrats Maddie, you look like such a big girl with your front tooth missing!

Can't wait for toothless kisses :) xo

Wow! What a big girl!! And very cool of the tooth fairy to bring a "Madison" dollar. And what is the deal with sweet lil' Cora sitting up on her own...did she not get the message to slow down until I can get back???

Tell both of those sweet girls that I will be home in two weeks from today so just be patient.

Love you all

Peace Out

I hear ya! Caleb has his two year molars coming in and Gavin already has two teeth and is working on some more. Needless to say, we have very cranky babies here. :)

Hi! I am a newbie to your blog via Shalee's. I was the one with the balsamic chicken recipe. If Shalee didn't send it to you, I'll be posting it on my blog later today. :) I'm adding you to my list of blogs I frequent. Nice to "meet" you and your girls. They are dolls. Cora was actually a name on our list for baby #2. He ended up being a boy. Go figure. :) I have a 2-y-o, Cassie, and an almost-3-month-old, Conrey. I hope to read more of your postings soon! :) Happy Blogging!
