Excuse me while I faint

My baby has a MOLAR! A friggin molar. So hard to believe. She was nursing (down to 2x per day) and leaned her head back to look at her dad, and there it was shining in the top of her mouth on the right side. Huge, huge tooth!

So I got her to do it again, to be sure that I saw what I thought I saw, and then again for daddy, so he could see. As teeth 5 and 6 are almost completely emerged from the top, and 7 and 8 are poking up steadily from the bottom, in sneaks #9!

The doctor told us it was coming at her appt. at the beginning of the month, but I figured it would be a while, silly me!


  1. Morgan cut her bottom two molars before any other tooth. Crazy, no? Anyway….we had NO clue they were there until she a) bit Jimmy (and it’s quite possible I laughed 😉 ) and b) she opened her mouth to eat and I was all “What the? Is it?”.

    Jacob got his first two molars (and 5 other teeth, 3 of which were incisors) in a 33 day span that started when he was 14 1/2 months old. Lauren didn’t get as many at once, but she got them about the same time. So it seems like it would be Keeley’s time! Just be careful – with Jacob, I wanted to know for sure the day the each tooth broke through the skin so I could write it in his baby book, so I kept feeling with my finger. Then one day he got mad and bit down. As in, the whole row of teeth from back to front bit my finger. I couldn’t feel that finger from the top knuckle to the tip for a week. Needless to say, I didn’t check Lauren’s teeth like that. I just made a note whenever I noticed!!
