Is there a dentist in the house?

We're all smiles around the Lasher house!

At her 4-month wellness appointment, our pediatrician confirmed that Bella is teething. She told us a tooth could poke through at any time now. So for about a month, we wiped up drool, slipped teething tablets under Bella's tongue and had a few restless nights of sleep. Today our "fears" have been confirmed... and Bella... does in fact... have her first tooth! She cut her first tooth, a bottom incisor and so begins active teething. 1 tooth down... 19 more to go!

I have attempted (and failed) to take a picture of this monumental occasion, however it is quite difficult to capture a tiny tooth in the tiny mouth of a 5-month-old. I'm going to miss her gummy grin... and more importantly, I'm going to miss being Bella's personal teething toy, a risk I'm not willing to take any longer.

Well, that's all for now... more to come after our trip to Baltimore next week!

Love always,
Ian, Kim & Bella
