Can you see it?


It's small and white and terribly sharp. It took it's sweet time to arrive, but now it's here and three of it's friends are not far behind. Yes, my 13 month old has finally gotten a tooth! Cameron started teething at 4 months which is actually really early and Gavin didn't get one until he was 11 months old, but Mason takes the cake as my latest tooth getter. According to our pediatrician, the sooner they get their teeth the sooner they loose them (true for Cameron he was the only kid in preschool to have lost a tooth at age 4), and the sooner they will go through puberty. Apparently the sooner you go through puberty the less time it lasts which means these people are usually shorter. Who knows if this old wives tale will hold true, but if so, than I guess Cameron will be short and Mason will be tall. I'll let you know in 18 years!

Those poor late teethers! Natalie is 6 1/2 and still waiting for a loose tooth. She didn't get at tooth until close to her first birthday. I'll send Mason my condolences when he's the only kindergartener who hasn't lost a tooth.

What a cutie!
Paige still hasn't lost a tooth and she will be seven in August. But she is so tiny, that I hope that old wives tale is true, because then she might have a chance of being over five feet!

That is just the cutest little picture! That's interesting about the whole teething/puberty/height thing. We'll have to see if it holds true. Hopefully he's a happy teether!

Ethan was the same way. Had only 4 teeth at age 2. He lost his first tooth half way through lst grade...he is tall. Cute boy you have there!
