Well, I’m sure everyone has noticed that Bogie doesn’t have any front (bottom) teeth. He was born with them, yup, came out of the womb with two teeth. Those teeth were shortly thereafter pulled because they weren’t secure in his tooth-bed. And giant spaces are present until adult teeth come in at about 5 or 6 years of age.
Well would you believe that this little one was born with two teeth as well?
So of course even before we left the hospital I was texting Dr. Crystal and the very next day after we were discharged we trekked down to see her.
Isn’t she beautiful? (She’s also very tall and wiggin smart.)
These photos were taken once the teeth had broken through the gums. Let me just say it hurt like nobody’s business to try and feed this little guy. It actually got so bad that we had to feed him on a syringe for two days. Once that happened and as the teeth became loose we decided they needed to come out.
So he still screams, only now he is toothless.
And we continue the newborn saga of no sleep and constant poop.
Hopefully the screaming will start to diminish, sleep will improve, and I can get some “sleepy newborn photos.”
