Lost



Becca lost a tooth over the weekend. This is the third one. She lost the bottom two front last year, but the new teeth had already come in behind the old ones so she never had any empty spaces. Now she has a big ol' empty space in the front. Of course she still has to lose one more to catch up to her sister!

For those of you who don't know, Kenzie has already lost four teeth. The top four in the front.
When she was two she hit her mouth on the coffee table. After a trip to the dentist and an x-ray we found out that the front two had been pushed up into the gum line and definitely had to come out. The other two on either side were very loose and he recommended that they come out too. There was a chance they could tighten up again but since Kenzie is a thumb sucker they probably wouldn't get the chance. So rather than wait and take the chance that she would have to have those removed at a later time he took them all at once. I am going to leave out all the gory details because this has been on of my worst experiences as a parent. I'll just say that she has recovered very nicely and there is nothing that she can't eat. Unfortunately this was her first experience with the dentist and since then we are pretty hit or miss as to how cooperative she is when at the dentist. Her first cleaning went suprisingly smoothly. The second not so good and we are due for a third shortly. We'll just have to wait and see!
And with no teeth in the front she can do cool stuff like touch her tongue to her nose!

While I am on the subject of things getting Lost. I need to mention the show Lost. This is my favorite show. The only show that I watch religiously. The show that made me call the cable company and get a DVR because they changed the time slot on me and I was afraid of missing the shows because I am rarely awake after 10:00pm. The show that frustrates me to no end but leaves me wanting more. I am so happy that it is back on after a three month break. Now all is good.

What an exciting time!! Hope the tooth fairy was nice to Becca. :) I remember having my front tooth removed when I was little, probably Kenzie's age. It made a perfect place for a straw. I'm sure Kenzie has forgotten the trama of the day she fell, but will have a good story to tell friends when she gets older.

Becca looks so cute with her new gap. I can't believe how fast both of them are growing. And I'm missing it all...thank goodness for your blog!

I hope Kenzie's 3rd trip to the dentist is uneventful for your sake. You just never know with her ;o) You just got to love her!
