Teeth & Curls
Tyler: "Get your hands out of my mouth - this is a 'toys & things off the floor only' zone!"
Tyler now has 7 teeth - weird huh? He has four on the bottom, two incisors and ONE front tooth! Yep...that other front tooth is being stubborn! It looks like Tyler LOST his front tooth - his smile cracks me up! And what little nubs he has - I certainly hope they ALL grow in further or he'll have a really hard time eating...that is, WHEN he actually eats! ;o)
When I took Parker to the dentist (because of his grinding & chipped teeth) I asked him if getting your incisors before your front teeth was "odd". He said it was not a 'normal' thing and he wasn't sure he'd seen any patients with this occurrence. I told him BOTH boys got their front teeth AFTER their incisors came in, attributing that to their intubation at birth (the tube actually made a dent on the roof of their mouths - which has resolved). He said we'll never know "why", but their adult teeth should be as 'normal' as anyones.
