Somebody Finally Grew A Tooth

Ruby surprised me on Sunday afternoon with a sharp spot on her gum line. I got so excited that I think I surprised her and yelled for the boys to come look. I checked my old journal for when Sebastian got his first tooth and his was December 22nd, 2007 when he was six months old. Hers just happened to come in on the 23rd of this month. I remember his second tooth following soon after his first but I didn't write down the rest. Needless to say, I hope this provides us all a well deserved break in the teething schedule.

Being six months old is a big deal because someone is also sitting up all by herself. We still have to keep a blanket behind her in case she reaches for a toy and ends up face down on the hard floor but she loves her new birds eye view! If only we could push pause and enjoy this stage for awhile longer before the crawling begins...

xoxo,

The things us mothers get excited about. People without children give you this look like: what's the big deal? But you know that one day they'll know what your feeling when they have children of their own. Congrats Ruby! Now, stop growing up! This is what I tell my kids, but they don't seem to listen to me.

Wowsers! She's so young for a tooth, well to me anyway, none of my kids had teeth until well after 13 months. Crazy! Ruby is simply adorable.

My Pete is just nine months and he has seven teeth already. I think there must be a special place in heaven for nursing mothers who persevere through those sharp little chompers! Your Ruby is absolutely beautiful. What a treasure!

Melissa said...

Awwww, baby's tooth and baby toes, just too sweet! She is just precious as she can be! Oh how I miss those times!

you're so right...one of the best stages is when they can sit up and they are completely content...just for a few months (if lucky!) before they realize they want to MOVE!
