My baby is growing up. One week ago we were SO excited that she had lost her 1st tooth. The tooth fairy came and gave her $2.00....although she told everyone that she got $5.00. She must have had a premonition because 5 days later she lost 2 MORE TEETH!! She was playing with a chip clip (the kind that holds the bag of chips shut). I don't know exactly what happened but she started crying and I went in the living room to find blood all over her face and 2 teeth laying on her lap?? The teeth WERE loose, but they weren't ready to come out yet. So, my baby girl lost 3 teeth in 1 WEEK!!! For the 2 teeth the tooth fairy came and she DID bring $5.00. So, Emma's a rich little girl who is now trying to pull all of her teeth out to bulk up that piggy bank:).
Her new teeth have already started to come in, and they scare me just to see them! They are so crooked!!! Her little mouth just has no room for big teeth (it didn't even have room for her little teeth). So, my hope is that they will at least be WHITE!! Here's a little trivia for you (maybe you already know but I sure didn't in my before Emma days)....if a baby is severely jaundice (to the point of transplant....not just "new born jaundice" which is actually a different kind of billirubin) while his/her teeth are forming, the jaundice gets in the teeth. With a new liver the jaundice leaves the skin, but the teeth are permanently stained. PHEW! Aren't you glad that you know that bit of useless trivia now? So, Em's teeth are a yellowish-greenish-gray...and always have been. I just want to see white in her permanent teeth (because those were not forming at the time of her jaundice).
HA! I just had to laugh when many commented that you had never seen me before:). Maybe I'll post more pics of myself soon....after I lose about 20 pounds!! I think it would be MUCH easier to just never get fat in the 1st place and maintain your weight than to gain weight and try to lose it!! I do not like to work out....and I love food!! Bad combination!!! I've never had a problem with weight....until I went through 2 pregnancies (where I kept on 10 lbs. each time). I know that it's not a ton of weight, but I.CAN.NOT.LOSE.IT!!!! Hmmmm.....maybe I'll go get a cookie now:). I wouldn't trade my 20 lbs. back and not have my children though!! They are SOOOO worth it:).
