Here a tooth, there a tooth


Photobucket Photobucket


Lately, every story that Rose has read to herself has began with, "In the rocky hills of Judea..."

She's currently reading an antique book (which I'm slightly shuddering about but it's very special for her to play with it) and I can hear her saying, "Rose walked into a building. She was a grown-up. She was in heaven. Yes, outside was HEAVEN! We can have a birthday with Jesus on the tea part. Yes, we will. I am a princess for Him and I can feel it happen. I closed my eyes and a beautiful treasure was here. I was talking about my story and Jesus came from the East."

Also, guess who got their first tooth at an itty bitty three months and one week old? Alice!! Rose was four months old when those first two little teethies on the bottom popped through (she bit me and I was certain) and we've been on "Tooth Watch" for the past week with Alice since she was teething something fierce. Up popped the first tooth today - bottom front. I can see it has a little twin working her way up, too. No more gumminess...too soon!

P.S. And, a second ago Rose came over and kissed me on the cheek, saying, "I'll still love you, Mommy, when you're old and sick." Thanks, sweetie! She's a darling...and then I had to backtrack, because I don't think that she said when...I think she said even though!

  3. Wow... my youngest to get a tooth was 6 months. My oldest was 9 months. I have noticed that the earlier they get their teeth the earlier they lose the baby ones. It's interesting. My daughter who didn't get any teeth until she was 9 months was really slow to lose her baby teeth and her younger brother (by 17 months) has lost more teeth than she has.

  4. It is so fun when they are telling stories or even just playing by themselves and all they have "learned" comes out all jumbled up together!

  5. That is such a cute story. Be sure to get a video of Grace reading if you get a minute. I have videos of both of my girls "reading" when they were about her age. I treasure them. Priceless!

    Have a great day;-)

  8. What pretty girls you have! (And I love reading your blog because of what a good Christian mom you seem!) I would also love to possibly see photos of you and your husband when you were little, because it's so much fun to see how little ones look like this parent or that. :)

  9. Oh man, I'd be so sad to have a really early teether. I was 1 when I got my first tooth and hoping it would be the same for my son... but nope, almost 7 months. I think I only got bitten once, thank God!

  10. Hey Kelly,

    Looks like you have been having a fabulous time!!!

    I have a question for you... I have a dear friend who is a first time mother as of last week. She is nursing and having A LOT of pain as a result. Seems like I have read something on your blog in the past about you having a similar issue, and I am wondering if you could share any tips with me to pass on to here. She is using a gerber balm; however, I know that there has gotta be something better out there for her. It has been almost ten years since I nursed and I didn't have any of those issues.

    Your input will be so greatly appreciated!! You can reach me at jillianarnould@cox.net

    God bless you & yours
