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.

6-year Molars

I had forgotten about them to be honest.

This morning Amelia woke up at 6:22 am and said her tooth hurt. My eyes were still closed and I asked her which one. "On the bottom in the back." I asked her if she'd been brushing it. "I try to, but when I go too far back I start to gag." I told her I'd look at it when I got up.

When I got up a little bit later and went to the light with her I looked in her mouth and there, just below the surface, but very barely, was a beautiful new molar. Ahhh, the six year molars. That might explain all the 4:30 am, 5 am, etc. wake-ups in the past week or so.

It amazes me that even though a child is old enough to be able to communicate better than a teething infant, they still don't recognize it was their incoming teeth that causes them to wake. Amelia is such a morning person anyway, I think she has just thought all along, "Cool! More time to play!" Cuz that is what she does. And we are very tired.

But it's always nice to discover there is a reason for something that's been going on because it gives hope that things might change for the better ... we can hope. :-)  And I am very grateful for healthy teeth that show up when they're supposed to.
