Their First Teeth

I remember when Adler got her first tooth. All of a sudden I noticed her gums bleeding and her sharp little puppy fang hanging by a thread. Below the puppy fang was a brand new adult dog tooth already emerging. What a momentous occasion. Our puppy was growing up. I kept this little tooth like it was my first born child's very first tooth that fell out. But the other day I noticed that this precious little tooth had all but disintegrated in my jewelry box where I had kept it.

Where does the time go? Adler is now a tad older than two and a half and Austen is six months old already...and just got two teeth. Yes, I repeat two teeth. His two bottom teeth came in at the same time and life is good again. There's no more waking up in the middle of the night screaming in pain (although he did quickly fall right back to sleep with the help of a pacifier). Our little guy is happy testing out the different sounds he can make now that he has two teeth. And watch your fingers because he loves to chomp down on them, and now that he has teeth, it actually hurts!


  • Oh, I was hoping to see a picture of Austen's new teeth too! Maybe next time.

  • Two teeth already. Hope to see you again, Austen, before you have all of your teeth.
    Much love,
