He has a new song to sing!

What are the odds of losing both your front teeth just before Christmas? Apparently pretty good for TJ. Actually, the second tooth had a little help from Presley. Seems the dental hygienist was WRONG about that root canal not affecting the root being dissolved so the tooth could come out. Whatever they filled that root with was like a rod going into the gum, so that despite the fact that the tooth would totally wiggle to stick flat out of his mouth, there are actually still a 3/8 inch long round root holding it in place. If you look carefully at the picture, you can see how it had messed up his gum (the one where you can already see the new tooth coming in). Anyway, enough of the gory details.
TJ is funny. He's rewritten "All I want for Christmas is my two Front Teeth" to be "Something I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" since, as he puts it, he wants more than two teeth for Christmas, LOL.
Pin It!

I love this picture, Amy! He's got such big, beautiful eyes. The gums will go back to normal soon. Almost all of my Gracie's teeth left messed-up-looking gums (all of her teeth had permanent ones coming in behind them).
