Teeth

I can't remember how much detail I went into about Monkey and his teeth...too lazy to go look it up! Anyways, the dentist sent us to the orthodontist to have them scan his mouth to see about his permanent teeth. Well his head is too small and their machine couldn't take a picture of his mouth. He is one of the smaller kids in his class, which makes sense since he is also one of the youngest. He is 49 inches tall and weighs 50 lbs. Well yesterday he tells me to come by him and he shows me that he has a second tooth loose!!! This is good news in one sense and bad in another. Good because it shows that he is just going to be a late tooth looser but he will loose them. Bad because his mouth hasn't grown much more to give those permanent teeth room to come in straight. I'm hoping that tooth takes about 2 months or more before it falls out. Then maybe he could have a 3rd tooth loose at his next dentist appointment and make our dentist less worried about him! Because I'm not at this point and I hate when doctors are worried when I'm not and then they start to make me worried when it is all for nothing. We've had this happen a few too many times. Our children are slow growers...

Both Joey and Tommy still have two big holes in their mouths and no big teeth to fill them yet. There just isn't room in there yet. Ah well.

Here's hoping his tooth hangs in there for a while. ;)

Sigh... Teeth suck. I'm hoping Evan loses his next 2 soon or we may be needing them pulled,too...
