Remember how I said I was pretty sure Tate was getting his canines first? (Or excuse me... eye-teeth, for those who think I'm referring to my doberman when I use the word canine)... you know who you are... ;)
I was sure I was going to have a baby vampire. We could see the whites of his canines swelling right underneath the gums. His doctor even verified this at his 4-month appointment. She was sure the only swelling in his gums was occurring by his canines. She checked the bottom gums. No teething going on there. None at all. She was sure. Just the canine region.
So, about 2 weeks ago, just a few days after turning 5 months old, (I know, I know... I'm late to post this...) after a long and sleepless night with my sweet baby, I was feeling around by his canines to see if they had popped through yet... and he BIT me. With TEETH! Where in the world did that come from? I wondered. Then I saw it. The sharp little sprouting of his first tooth.
And right where it should be.
I took this picture Monday. You can't see it that great here, but his second tooth popped through Sunday night, right beside the first one.
So there go my visions of my vampire baby. I was so looking forward to dressing him up with a black cape and painting his face white. *sigh*
Actually, I was excited for his canines to come in first because it would allow me to nurse longer. My babies are "munchers." At least that's the word the lactation consultant used with Millie. And Tate's even more vigorous. Fun. Even more fun with teeth. *bigger sigh* I think I'll be okay until the front top ones come in though. So I really am hoping those canines will push through first now!
He is so stinkin' cute though.
I could just eat him up.
And now I'll leave you with a video that you may find a little creepy. I think Tate did. To give you a little background... it started out with the girls saying "Peek-a-boo" in funny voices and Tate laughing hysterically. By the time I got the camera out, it had started to get a little weird. You'll see what I mean...
