On Thursday we took Lucy to see the dentist- just to have him check how her teeth were coming in and to get her used to the whole process. Man, do we have a great office here- the dentist himself was super nice, and his staff was great with Lucy as well.
I held her in the dentist chair, and they showed her all their "teeth tools," even the electric ones, and let her hold them. By the end, Lucy even let them stick the suction-thingy in her mouth, so I was impressed! She also let the dentist "count" her teeth, although she definitely bit down on his finger, too, so that's a draw.
Lucy was very happy to get a new toothbrush- she LOVES brushing her almost-8 teeth! Right now she has four on top, with three completely through and one coming in on the bottom. She's obviously very proud of them, because she loves to show off by tearing off huge chunks of bread and waffle, and decimating the teething biscuits that she used to gnaw on. Lucy also enjoys chomping down on any object (including fingers (even her own-oww!), blankets, and mama's shoulder, amongst other things) that comes near the proximity of her mouth.
I'll appreciate her teeth more when she learns how to control her initial latch better!
