Bump Watch 2009

No, I'm not talking about eyeing the bellies of skinny celebrities to attempt an early detection of pregnancy...or a lot of carbs for lunch; I'm talking about the impending arrival of C's first tooth. H had his first sprout when he was only four months old, and C started the drooling, swollen gummed mess at that time as well, but five months later-nothin'!

Yesterday, I finally saw the tell-tale opaque bump that was swollen and rounded, now just waiting for that razor-sharp edge to come through. I don't know that 'anxiously awaiting' is the right phrase, because I'm sure my girls would be more than happy if he was a Gummy Gus for three more months.

After all, he ate 1/4 of a grilled cheese today without teeth, I think he'd be fine for a few more months, right?

H did the same thing...two teeth and then nothing for 5 months. I started to worry a little, but the new arrivals showed up on his b-day. His third tooth was not in the middle on the top either. It was on the side...he looks a little like a hillbilly!
