|Milani, 9 months|
Immediately, I jammed my finger back into Milani's mouth, which she didn't mind of course and I ran my finger across her bottom gums until I felt the sharp prick from earlier and there it was; the beginning of Milani's first tooth coming in.
I screamed with delight! "Aaron, Aaron, her tooth is coming in!" I exclaimed but my fiance didn't budge, just smiled. I picked up Milani and went into her room so that I could see the tooth in better lighting. Unfortunately, that was easier said then done. Milani fought with me with her tongue and I could not get a clear view of the tooth. Using my pinky finger to push back her tongue, I saw, ever so slightly, the top of the tooth. I was filled with excitement again. Sorry, I could not get a picture because she won't let me and it is very hard to see.
I placed Milani in her walker and took out Mya so I could see if she had any teeth coming in; nope not yet.
That night I really understood to cherish each moment with my children because they grow up so fast. It feels like yesterday that I was told that my cervix had opened to 3 cm and I was delivering via c-section at 32 weeks on Tuesday, July 19th, 2011; Mya weighing 3 lbs 9 oz and Milani 3 lbs 1 oz.
