Here we come, Colgate!

Last Thursday, as I attempted to pack for our Georgia trip, some little someone told me I'd better pack one more thing!
Yep, Thursday morning, I saw that first pearly white peeking through! Of course, I called my Mom and Devin right away... Grammy came out at lunch to check it out and ride with us to get some "Hylands Homeopathic Teething Tablets" at Walgreens. Daddy was quite proud of sweet girl's newest milestone!
On Friday morning, pearly white #2 had also "erupted." I don't know how many people can say that their first two teeth were cut in two different states... Thursday at home in Florida, and Friday in Georgia!

That previous week, we had noticed Annabelle was a little fussier than she normally is and I was beginning to wonder where our easy-going baby had gone. We had just had her 4 month well check the week before and our pediatrician said she was showing no signs of teething soon... ha. She showed them!
I took pictures and I HAVE to share this one, because it's too funny. Bless her heart she looks like she has been to heck and back..... kind of reminds me of pictures taken in the hospital after a baby has been born, when the momma is all drugged up and her hair is all sticking up everywhere... (I speak from experience on that one).
I felt like a dog after I discovered her tooth and realized that she had cut it without one bit of Tylenol or teething tablets! Don't get me wrong, I am not into "medicating" kids, but dang, I remember cutting my wisdom teeth and that was painful! I totally would have given her some Tylenol... She's a trooper for sure. Very much like her big brother... (who also teethed early)...

Here's her two chompers. They're still pretty red...

She's so very proud of them and is constantly rubbing her tongue over them...

She's also decided that cutting teeth is pretty hard work...

Girl--you gotta get you some Hurricaine! It's a life saver! (well, a gum saver for sure!) You can get it from your dentist.....about $10 per bottle..only takes a little, tiny dab! It's the best!

I am so proud of Annabelle and her first big teeth! What a woman getting through it with no Tylenol! I can't wait to see those teeth in person (:
