Yesterday, we discovered 2 new teeth in Claire’s mouth — one on either side of her top front teeth — making for a grand total of 6 teeth at the age of 12 months.
(So far, all of her teeth have come in pairs. Is this normal?)
The best part? She did not exhibit any signs of teething prior to our discovering these new pearly whites. If you can recall, the first four were hellish: waking up 5-6x per night, constant whining and crying, extreme clinginess, and so forth.
We’re keeping our fingers crossed that this will be the norm for the rest of her teeth!
And, to celebrate, I will share with you a picture of a child’s skull before losing their baby teeth:
Completely horrifying yet strangely fascinating at the same time, wouldn’t you say?
