Tooth Update

Well, mentioning it on the blog is all it took. The first one had its ragged edge's poking through Jimmy's gumline about two weeks ago. It's about 1/3 of the way in now.

4 more are making their apperance known in his upper gum. I learned this on one of our play adventures where I had him turned upside down over my knee, and, hey, TEETH.

Everything I've read says that it's usually the bottom two and then the top two and then the surrounding bottom or top ones on either side. Well, I don't see any signs of the bottom tooth's pair, but those top ones will be completely in fairly soon - couple more weeks. He's going to look pretty funny - in babies' eyes at least - I guess.

Today's his birthday party. All the literature from the experts say not to overwhelm baby at his first party. We're throwing that caution out the window and expect about 35 people.

That's about how many we had at my son's first birthday, because the first party is really for the parents, not the child. Except for the cake.

Oh, no, he knew the party was for him, the little ham. He pranced around and made silly antics and was social the whole time. When the people left a bit after 6, he got fussy and crashed.
