Teeth

After many wrestling matches with Goldie and her toothbrush. I finally surrendered. She wins. I put the toothpaste on the brush, hand it over and let Goldie do her thing. When she's done I manage to do a tiny bit of brushing. So, lets hope the xylitol does its job.

I don't have any pics of the inside of her mouth, but let me tell ya, she has a ton of teeth. Her last two year molar and two eye teeth have broken through and are taking their good ole time coming in. I was hoping she would get her teeth later, allowing a little more time for her mouth to grow. But, she's followed the same pattern as her sisters. (who are both being monitored by an orthodontist, sigh.)

Eva got all of her teeth too. There's not enough room in there for all of them, but they are there. So, we have to brush and floss her teeth. Oh well.

She is too cute and what a big girl brushing on her own. I still brush Noah's since I dont want to get the dentist upset!

Gotta love that independent streak! Adam was/is the same way. I also try to get a few brushes in after of course he has done it :)

Sounds like a very independent little girl you have there. Independence is encouraged around our house...sometimes by default.

I love that last photo! Sean adores brushing his teeth and luckily it seems to be working as he hasn't had a cavity yet.

Wow. She brushes her teeth. I find that to be a novel concept. Guess who doesn't here?
