I’m pretty sure Averi got her first tooth today. If not today, it was sometime recently. How, you might ask, do I not know when it happened? Because it’s a MOLAR!
I was playing with Averi today and when I leaned her back I saw something white. After further examination, I realized that her upper left molar has broken through her gums. Now I know that people with DS often have their teeth come in in a weird order, but I was definitely not expecting a molar to be her first tooth. It’s also a very painful way to start getting teeth. (I tried to get a picture of the tooth and it was a no go.)
Hopefully all the drooling that she has been doing lately will lead to her getting teeth in the front, but until then I think she’s trying to tell me that she’s ready to skip baby food and go straight for the steak!
