The whole tooth and nothing but…

It finally happened! A tooth surfaced! In fact, two teeth! Benjamin is very proud of himself. But remember those 7 months in the NICU? The months on TPN? The jaundice? Well that stuff is still following Benjamin around. You can see it in those two little teeth poking out. They are unfortunately discolored from all that stuff. So our little boy will have some brownish baby teeth – but the adult teeth will be normal color. We don’t care- because he finally got teeth! They could be purple for all we care.

Ben is also still sniffly from his cold. Amy took him to the doctor who said his lungs were clear and we should to “wait it out.” This is was a new experience for us- a doctor not recommending the most extreme treatment when something is wrong. “Wait it out?” Maybe Ben is a normal baby now!

In exciting news, Ben won a braille book from one of our favorite baby blogs “Thomas Marshall Does it All” – a wonderful blog about another little boy who is visually impaired and doing amazingly. Thomas and his family are real inspirations to us and we learn a lot from them. Jessica, Thomas’ mother, celebrated the anniversary of her blog with a contest. Thanks, Jessica!
