Six month check up??

*disclaimer---for those that don't know, I (Leigh) am a dental hygienist...

Nope, Grey isn't ready for his first visit just yet...but we are getting him ready! :) When Grey first started popping in those teeth, I of course started brushing them. And by brushing, I mean holding him down while he screams and trying to cram a toothbrush in. Yeah, he wasn't a fan. Recently though, we have come to an understanding that brushing isn't all that bad. We take turns...first I start...

Then he gets a turn...
Yum...he wouldn't be doing a good job if he didn't get a big taste! :)

My turn again...(he occasionally pulls the "I'm not going to open" bit...)
And then he is back at it...making sure to get every nook and crany!


I sure love his crooked, crazy teeth!!

Adorable! We do like to push our training on our littles don't we... I am a teacher, by profession, and would like to see my 18 month old working on simple addition and writing his name;)
Your pictures are great!

Aww! Okay so I'm the bad one - i haven't started the toothbrush thing with Jet yet. How bad is that on a scale of 1 to 10? We bought the stuff months ago...and he has 5 teeth now...and i still haven't started...oh dear. I feel like I should get him out of bed and start right now. lol.

So I see the in-ground tub you were talking about in the background. That thing looks hazardous! I bet bath-time is fun... have you fallen in yet? haha!
