Tooth 8

Normally baby teeth grow in in pairs, so I've been expecting his other bottom tooth to come in any day now. But I got a surprise yesterday, when I saw the glint of a tooth way in the back. His first molar (on the bottom left) had just broken the surface. It's a little early. We had to look it up, but molars are normally 13-16 months. No wonder he's been drooling more lately. Molars cause a lot of teething because they are so flat on top, that it's hard for them to move up. Now I'm curious about his upper molars. Unfortunately, he does not want to cooperate and open wide for me to look in his mouth from below.
