Little Peanut or Big Moose, depending on the moment,
has been growing teeth like you wouldn't believe lately.
The first 2 teeth came in at the end of April and beginning of May,
and the 3rd tooth came in the middle of June.
Then we sort of hit a stand still, where he had 3 odd teeth (well 2 normal and one very odd)
and I wondered when the next one would come in.
But in the past 7 days he has gotten 3 more teeth.
Oh boy, he really hasn't been that cranky,
but he's up every 2-3 hours all night.
The weird part of this whole teething business is the order in which Peanut has been getting his teeth.
The diagram on the left shows the average baby mouth and the way teeth normally erupt.
They usually come in pairs, starting with the bottom and then moving to the top.
Usually. But you know how that goes.
This diagram shows how my little Moose is growing his teeth.
When his third tooth popped up, I was really surprised it was on the bottom.
I kept checking for the other half of the pair to come in.
It was weeks and weeks before we had any activity and it ended up being the top right side.
I wondered if he would grow all the teeth on the right side of his mouth first.
We just keep on getting more surprises!
