All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth

Kaitlynn has been teething for at least 7 months now. She has been teething since she was at least 3 months old. For the last 5 to 6 months she has had blisters on and off on her 2 front gums on the bottom and top and sides. From time to time you could also see the teeth from under the gums, then they would disappear again. Kaitlynn must have really hard gums! I hope that serves her well and she doesn't have any problems with her teeth in the future. She has been in so much pain these last 5 to 6 months. Finally on November 23rd her front bottom tooth on the right side came through! Then on December 20th her front top tooth on the right side came through. On Christmas Eve, her front top tooth on the left side started coming through and on December 28th, her bottom front tooth on the left side started coming through. It's so crazy - 3 teeth in 8 days. I tried taking a picture of her new teeth, but she made it very difficult. This was the best I could do.

Kaitlynn got some really cute clothes for Christmas and I just had to show them off.

This sweater and matching socks are from her Great Uncle Kent and Great Aunt Paula (Dave's uncle and aunt). The cool thing about this sweater is that the fur collar is detachable.
This pink sweat suit is from her Maw Maw and Paw Paw (my parents). The pants are so long, which is great, because Kaitlynn is in the 95th percentile for height.
I absolutely love this picture. She looks like a dancer. We bought her the Baby Legs (leg warmers).

I also wanted to share pictures of the Princess toy box and bench we bought her.

Kaitlynn Meeting the Man in Red

We took Kaitlynn to see Santa Claus Sunday (12/23) at West County Mall. We invited the grandparents (my mom and dad and Dave's mom) to come along to see Kaitlynn's first reaction to Santa. Kaitlynn was OK with Santa until I sat her on his lap. She cried so hard. I think we traumatized her. Maybe she will like him better next year. She is only 10 months old.

This is Kaitlynn with her grandma (my mom).
