Avery and I had our routine dentist appointments :) The timing worked out perfectly, because on Friday evening when we were getting ready for bed, we noticed that Avery has two loose teeth, and two adult teeth coming in behind!!!! We were so surprised!!! I wasn't expecting loose teeth for at least another year!!!!
Avery is finding it pretty exciting :) She's looking forward to getting a surprise from the tooth fairy, although when Grandma and Aunt Evey asked her about it (on separate occasions), she condescendingly told them that the tooth fairy isn't real :)
In the waiting room :) She really likes our dental hygienists, and she was very excited to show off her loose teeth! It was my turn first, and as Avery watched, she decided that actually, she doesn't want to be a doctor anymore, because she thinks that being a dentist would be more exciting! So now she wants to be a dentist :)
The dentist came in to check her teeth too, and he reassured us that we don't need to worry about her grown up teeth coming in behind her baby teeth - he says they should move into the right place after the baby teeth fall out :)
Avery also had her first fluoride treatment, and handled it like a super star :)
We also discovered that in addition to the two adult incisors, her top two 6 year molars are already in!! I had no idea!
Of course, Brogan wanted to have a turn too! Avery always gets to do the coolest stuff, and he doesn't like being left out ;) So he climbed into the chair, and the hygienist was nice enough to count his teeth for him :) I was super surprised that he actually let her do it, he can be a bit funny with sensory stuff.
Then we went home happy with our loot bags filled with toothbrushes (Lightening McQueen for Brogan, Princess Tiana for Avery), toothpaste, and little bouncy soccer balls :)
