Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

First Dental Visit

Amelia did really, really well at the dentist's office! She opened her mouth and totally cooperated. She has 20 teeth now - more than Nana! The X-ray came back really good and she also got a general exam and has no decay and all signs of good growth and bite.

They can't guarantee that her tooth won't turn colors - there's no way to tell how much trauma it took. They also can't guarantee there won't be a stain on her permanent tooth because there is no way to tell if there was any contact between her baby tooth and her permanent tooth when Amelia hit the ground. At this point, I've done all I can do and it also feels good to have had her looked at by professionals. They noticed that her two front teeth are a little uneven but aren't concerned at this point. They do want us back in 2 months to see if there are any other signs of damage that take time to "present themselves". They'll also do her first cleaning.

The dentist is a female which I think is a good example for Amelia. Even more of a bonus - she's a UK grad! Go BIG BLUE!
