You won't need dentures after all!

Dear Thomas,
  Today we felt it... your first tooth!! You won't let us get a good look in your mouth, but we know it's there.  We can feel it when you bite down.  I can't wait to see it!  Considering everything you have been through with colds, ear infections, etc. this went relatively smooth.  You have been sleeping well at night, and you don't seem to be in pain.  (Let's hope you aren't)  They say the longer the teeth take to come out, the healthier they are; if that's true, you will have some strong, and healthy teeth.

  We also visited Dr. Joseph today to have a hearing test.  We had to wait a very long time, and I lugged you all around Lewiston to the different offices; you did great!  I hear again and again, what a good natured baby you are.  People in public love you.  The hearing test was interesting. Because you are so little, they can't ask you raise your hand when you hear a noise... instead, they look for signs that you hear the noise like a pause in play or a turn to the direction of the noise.  It was a lot of fun to watch your reaction!  You love Dr. Joseph.  Every time we see him you light up!  He gives you tongue depressors, which you hang on to for the rest of the evening; they make good chew toys!
