SPEAKING OF DENTIST, I think I kept a pretty good record of M’s primary teeth when they fell off. And being sentimental me (or mad, one might say), I even kept them – all 20 of them!!!
At a glance, this looks like custom-confiscated items of the white stuff! In reality, each of these packets contains M’s baby teeth (18 of the total 20) that fell off / were extracted, between 2005-2010.
The first tooth to fall off was the central incisors on 5 Dec 2005; which grew back by the time her third tooth fell off on 2 July 2006; she’s seen here smiling in a photo taken on 7 July 2006.
A bloodied sight, yet M wasn’t the slightest afraid at all, in fact she pulled out the wobbly tooth herself – the 5th – on 13 Aug 2006; followed by the 6th tooth a week later on 22 Aug 2006. (In fact, she also pulled out herself the 14th tooth on 30 May 2009).
The “souvenir” tooth #5 and tooth #6!
The teeth chart will be useful soon when Little Em’s teeth start falling off! She’s already anxious to meet the Tooth Fairy!
