And Then There Was 1!

After months of whining and grizzling (me) and lots and LOTS of teething nappies (baby), it finally happened yesterday.

I was feeding the baby a banana and the little monkey bit me. He’s been doing that a lot recently, using my finger as a teether. That’s when I felt it… a sharp jagged edge on his bottom gum. Could it be??!

Obviously, anytime I want to actually look inside Baby Boys mouth he clamps it shut. So after countless attempts I finally managed to have a peek. And there it was in all it’s glory… Wait hang on, a tooth… But it looked more like a little iceberg poking through. No smooth square shaped pearly white. Oh. Right. That’s what they look like?

But a TOOTH all the same. His first tooth! Hurrah!!

      Typical isn’t it? Seems with everything it happens when you stop expecting it!

      I never expected all the fever that went with it though. That bit was a bit rubbish.

    Woohoo! Bet you get lots now. We had one and then about eight came through in the next week. I kid you not. It was not a good week.
