Does this mean she can have steak now?

Just wanted to share some exciting news...Over the last few days, Emily got her first tooth! After months and months (and months and months and months) of drooling, we finally see a tooth. Woo Hoo! We have been able to feel it for a little while now, but over the past few days it broke through the skin. It is a bottom tooth and we are happy to report it already has a friend moving in right next door!

I have been trying to get pictures of the new little choppers, but Emily does not want to pose with her mouth wide open. And when I try to pull down her bottom lip she just sticks her tongue out - do you think she is trying to tell me something?

Funny thing is, about a month ago, we thought she was getting 2 teeth - one on top and one on the bottom. They were her "fangs". There were white spots in both places that looked like a tooth, but now those spots have disappeared. So either we were completely wrong or those teeth decided to go back into hiding and wait a while.

Teething sure is a guessing game and is it just me, or does it take FOREVER?

Lily is teething too. . .but no teeth yet. . .just drooling and discomfort for months and months! Hopefully She'll follow Emily's example and get a tooth already! :-)
