So, I had been watching this tiny white spot on Connor's lower gum(on the right hand side of middle) for over a week now. The last couple days I thought I could see more swelling, but, he really doesn't let me look in his mouth, so I am never sure what I see! Well, last night I was pretty sure that the front of his gums on BOTH sides of middle were swollen, and believe it or not, this morning his first tooth was through, but on the LEFT side of middle, with the right one following close behind! I tried to get a picture this morning during breakfast, but there was no way he'd let me in there, so this is the closest I got:
It's actually a pretty accurate picture showing how he fared during this whole teething process... smiling but sad, and putting on a brave face! I am so proud of my little guy! And now I know that the Tylenol I gave him on those few rough nights was really needed! Through this while process I was skeptical - I was never 100% sure he was getting a tooth!
On top of getting his first tooth, the whole family went and got flu shots today. Connor did really well! He only let out one cry and then he was just fine!
On October 16 we went to Auntie Kim and Uncle Ron's house for cousin Courtney's 6th birthday! Here's a picture of Connor with his cousins Jacob, and the birthday girl herself, Courtney!
And one of Daddy and Connor:
On the 18th Connor and I visited Jamie and Beth! You'll notice all the toys around, but what are the boys interested in?? That's right, a copy of Lois Hole's Perennial Favorites!!
I really like this picture because the boys have the exact same expression on their faces! They are engrossed in that gardening book!
They are just too cute playing together, aren't they???
Grandma Smith gave us a giant inflatable Halloween display, and Connor is very interested in it!! When we pull up in the car he just stares at it forever!!
Oh - Connor's costume arrived yesterday, but we have been too busy too try it on yet! Pictures of that to come tomorrow!
