Dentally Precocious

\\ Six teeth in six months //
Poor Emerson broke his first teeth at four months; his two chompers on the bottom showed up out of nowhere. Everyone that stuck their fingers inside what you'd expect be a safe little 4 month old mouth got a razor sharp surprise. Those bottom teeth were followed by two top teeth last month, and just this week his excessive drooling indicated that two more teeth were already pushing their way through the top of his gums. There is something about those gappy pearly whites appearing every time he smiles instead of a gummy grin that makes me feel like my baby is just growing up way too fast.

Besides being a harbinger of his fleeting youth, the teeth also strike a little fear into me, since we're still breastfeeding. I am hoping to teach Emerson as best I can to use the power of his teeth for good, and not evil.

Haha - thanks, ladies. He's been pretty good thus far, but I worry that once he learns his own strength we'll be in trouble ; )

He's so handsome! Striker boy is a year and a half and still only has the two bottoms.

Aw, thanks Lynette. Emerson says to tell Striker than all these teeth are overrated anyway. ; )
