All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth!

Who would have thought my five year old could sing that this Christmas and really mean it!

Saturday Mikayla was bouncing on her bouncey ball and fell face first onto the laundry room floor. There was amazingly no blood. However, both her top center teeth got pushed in all sorts of funny ways. Funny enough that I called and we made an emergency visit to the dentist.

We went back in bright and early this morning. After X-rays and another exam, both top center teeth were pulled. The dentist also pulled one of her lower teeth that refused to come out on its own and already had an adult tooth growing in behind it. Mikayla did amazingly well throughout it all. 99% of her crying was just from being nervous. The one time she did feel a bit of pain, the dentist was very caring and gave her another injection to numb her gum up a bit more.

She's doing awesome tonight and not complaining at all about sore gums. I'm so thankful that it was her baby teeth that got injured and not her adult teeth. We do need to go back in 6 months so he can examine her adult teeth that take place of the pulled baby teeth. He wants to make sure there have been no injuries to them. Nothing showed up on the x-ray, but we won't know for sure until they come in.

A Texas Sized Snowman

We woke up to snow this morning! So of course, we start yelling "It's SNOWING" which makes Mikayla wake up and get dressed in a flash! Out we went to make our very own Texas Sized snowman.

Yeah, I know it is very small, but not EVERYTHING is bigger in Texas. The kids had lots of fun playing in the snow. Nice big fat flakes for about 20 minutes. Then it stopped. By the time we headed in to school the snow had turned to sleet. And of course, the snow is now melting away.

Man all the roofs sure did look nice and pretty this morning though.

Well, he's growing!

Today was David's four month well check. He weighs 18 pounds and 15 ounces! He has gained 8 ounces since last week! David is now 26" long, an amazing 6" growth in length in 4 short months. The doctor was very impressed with his bright eyes following everyone around and how much he smiled. He got his rotavirus oral vax and THREE other vaxes as well. He wasn't very happy about that, but overall he's done much better this go around than last round.

And for pictures...

Here's David on his birthday

Sick baby :(

Skinny baby getting his first tub bath!

And my big boy now!

We've come a LONG way from the tiny preemie that had a helicopter ride to Temple! Praise God he's healthy!
