Peyton has had these two loose teeth for a few months or so. I check them daily because I am afraid that the teeth will fall out and she will swallow them and possibly aspirate them! I don't know if that's possible, but considering she's a child who can't have anything by mouth and does aspirate even her own secretions, it's a chance I'm not wanting to take! So this morning I checked one of the two teeth and it clicked when I wiggled it. Sure enough it was way loose. Like, ready to come out now loose. I put on medical gloves, got a little baby washcloth and....
|Check it out! Now I'm missing FOUR teeth! (bottom gap is the new one)|
I got her cleaned up and took some pictures.
|Peyton was making funny faces as she was exploring the strange sensation|
of a missing tooth in her mouth.
I decided, you know, I'd really better check that other loose tooth again. Just to be on the safe side. It didn't feel quite as loose, but something was nagging at me to check it. Nope. Not as loose, but it was pretty loose. I donned the gloves and got another baby washcloth...
|Oh my goodness!!|
This all may seem really trivial to some, but to me this is a big day! Not much random 'normal' kid stuff happens with Peyton, so this was a big day for her! This is the one part of her development over 5 years that seems to be on track, so I'm loving this!! I appreciate you letting me brag on her for a couple moments!!
