Today was Avery's first dentist appointment! I know, many of you are like, 7 months old, dentist? Really? But, she has 7 teeth and grinds them all of the time, plus, insurance pays for it, so why not go ahead and take her??
We went and the girls here were SO nice to her. So sweet to her and just did a fantastic job. It was a brand new dental office in Frisco called Healthy Smiles, it's only meant for kids, so if you live up there I would highly suggest taking your kids. So, turns out, she had another tooth pop out in the last day or so, making a grand total of 8!!! Holy moly! She is very far ahead, as teeth go. The dentist told me this is the amount of teeth they normally see in a one year old, so I did good to bring her in now. They put some flouride treatment on her teeth and some other stuff meant to protect enamel. They also told me that pacifiers are fine up until age one, not to give her juice unless instructed by a pediatrician, and to make sure to wipe her teeth down with a cloth or toothbrush every time before putting her to bed. They also said grinding is perfectly normal and to not worry about it, even if it is the worst sound on the planet!
The only thing that will happen as a result of getting her teeth early is that she will probably lose them early. So, we will see how that goes! The dentist did tell me she was the youngest patient she'd ever seen (she was young though) but I am glad I took her. I am a big believer in good dental health. I didn't take any pictures and normally don't at her doctor's visits. Sometimes, I just don't think about it because I am filling out paperwork or talking to the doctors. I wish I had taken a picture of her in the chair like a big kid with her "No Cavity Club" sticker (they thought it was so cute to give her one!). Oh well. Next time.
So, here are some pictures of Avery and I. She makes those pictures cute, certainly not me!!!
I also read a blog post from a girl's blog I follow who lost her beloved dog. It really broke my heart. I wish she lived in DFW, I would totally help her look for him. I just love dogs so much and think they are members of the family, and to think of my dogs getting lost just breaks my heart. I wanted to post a picture of my beloved pups, Bella and Molly. They were just laying there last time, like loving sisters, and I just had to snap a picture!!
Have a good last day of June! (For reals?? This year has gone by WAY too fast)
