I have to admit, I have no idea when this third tooth first started breaking through as I only saw it tonight. She has been drooling up a storm the past week and now we know why! She was playing one of her current favorite games...Mommy lies on the floor and Sweet Pea sits next to her, then turns towards Mommy and dives in an attempt to get over Mommy somehow. She often will get up on her knees and even onto her feet in the process of trying to fling over the top of Mommy. It's an entertaining game for all involved! Tonight we were playing a few rounds and as she is laughing her bum off with her mouth wide open I look up and see white where I don't think it normally is. I stick my finger in her mouth and there is something sharp. I'm guessing it's a 2 year molar because it is in the top back left of her mouth...not really far back though so I don't know. It's got two pieces of tooth sticking out on the outer gum line and one tiny one on the inner gum line. Since it's common for children with DS to have odd shaped and placed teeth, I'm really hoping that this is a typical looking molar and that the 4th corner hasn't broken through yet. Time will tell, but I'm keeping these fingers crossed (which is making typing this difficult)!
Sorry for there not being any pictures this post...I haven't even taken any in probably a week! Bad Mommy!
