It's a Tooth


Joaquin has his first tooth! It broke through the skin earlier this week and every day a little more of it shows. It's on the bottom in the middle. I think the second one right next to it is coming any day. My baby is growing up! It is common for babies with DS to have very erratic tooth eruption and sometimes a very late start. We met the most adorable baby on Saturday at the Buddy Walk and he didn't get his first tooth until 16 months and it was his molars. His mom called him the poster child for DS in regards to teeth. I believe his name was Nathan and oh my gosh, he was the cutest thing ever!
We'll post a picture as soon as it's more visible. In the meantime, here is another photo of the two of us yesterday at the Buddy Walk.

Hi Jennifer! Our kids are so close in age! Joaquin and Lillian are only weeks apart. I often think that Lillian will be popping a tooth too, we'll see. The Chicago Marathon is next week, so I'll make sure to get write about it after it happens. I'm still trying to find a way to go, but with my husband working and the other two kids, it's kind of hard.

awww! I hope Joaquin is a good teether and it's not causing him too much pain!

And YES, let's definitely plan a playdate/coffee date soon!
