At last we have a tooth. I don’t know how common it is, but today I actually got to experience the moment and see the first tooth cut. We were playing and I was on the phone to Nanny when it happened. Addi was being a bit fussy which was out of character. He kept coming over to me and wanting me, but then would distract himself with toys and be happy again.

All of a sudden I noticed what looked like blood on his chin. I hung up from mum and went to investigate, thinking he had done something silly with a block he was playing with. I then realised that it wasn’t his chin bleeding but his gum!! I got him to munch on a face washer for a little bit and then put some teething gel on it. Sure enough when I could get a good look I could see that a tooth had cut through his gums finally!!!

Ok so after teething from about 4 months old, we have a tooth…but which tooth…This is where it gets a little strange! Addison cut his top, right tooth (not the bottom, which generally comes first). No longer can we call him gummy bear. Here is a photo of the tooth peeking through his gums (it’s not a great photo, but hey it is hard to get him to open his mouth let alone take a picture of it!).

    Hi, Melissa, Wow what a great photo – I agree there wouldn’t be many who actually witness the tooth coming through. And looks like the other top one is about to pop out too. Well done Addi.
    Love Gran

    I’m a bit behind with my posts, but yes you are right! The other top tooth did come through and so has a bottom tooth. I’ve been working on Addi’s birthday party things so I really need to get into it and get the blog up to date!! I have lots of nice photos to share too. Just so glad that we are finally making some progress in the teeth department…looks like Addi can have cake for his 1st birthday after all hehe (we kept joking, no cake if you don’t have teeth). Love you, hope you are having a nice holiday and enjoyed your birthday!! xo
