Oliver has grown his first tooth! In the dental world we call it tooth letter O. (O for Oh my gosh, he has grown his first tooth!!) He had a really rough night last night and felt a little warm to the touch all day. I dismissed it as still getting over being sick. This morning he was chewing on his blanket and his clothes. As we were sitting together while I ate my lunch, I noticed that his nose was runny. I thought...hmmm, all of these signs would lead me to believe that he may be getting teeth soon. So, I did as any mother would, laid him in my lap and tipped him back and struggled with him to look into his mouth. I put my finger in his mouth to check first and he immediately stopped squirming when I rubbed it across his gums. I was shocked and more eager to get a good glance. Finally after a few seconds I was able to see the beginning of a little tooth breaking through his gums. I called Larry at work to let him know. He was very excited. I told him we only have another 20 teeth to go!!! I'll try to get a picture soon.
