this afternoon, i took sam for a walk in his stroller. he was chewing happily away on his bugaloop, and i was impressed with his ability to get it into his mouth and keep it there. his motor skills are really coming along.
anyway, we were almost home when i decided to give his gums a check (because he's been sporting tooth-bumps for a loooong time, and i was getting impatient).
AND I FOUND A TOOTH!! a tiny, freshly-broken-through tooth. i was so excited that i had to tell the next people i saw. two guys were biking toward me, and i called out "my son just got his first tooth!" and they (very very nicely!) congratulated me and stopped to smile at my one-tooth-wonder.
they looked into his stroller and grinned. like this:
rock on, toothless nice guys. rock on.
