4 - 0

Yet another top tooth. Score: Top 4, Bottom 0. The bottom gums would be totally getting beaten if this was a competition. The top gums are superior. The two middle bottom teeth seem to be trying very hard to come from behind but they just can't seem to make it happen.

I have a couple of theories. One is that bottom teeth don't really matter. My bottom teeth are horribly crooked but my top teeth are straight. My point? It doesn't matter, I have a nice smile because it's the top teeth that count. Who cares if she never gets bottom teeth, right? My other theory is that one of the reasons that my sweet baby has never bitten me whilst nursing is due to her lack of bottom teeth. I could be wrong but if I'm not then it's another reason to be glad they haven't arrived yet.

Can you tell I'm paranoid and just making up excuses for why the absence of bottom teeth is okay? I know it's stupid. Who cares? They'll come. She's not a toothless freak, etc. If I am this crazy over her lack of teeth just think about all the things I'll obsess over when she is older. I need to chill. Tell me to chill.

Shall we start a freaky teething club for our daughters? Mine has two on the bottom but her top side teeth came in before the bottom side teeth and in the wrong order (before her center teeth). Is this just another sign of rebellion? Are we doomed with daughters that like to do things their own way? Yea! You go girls!

Well Pearl's two bottom teeth came in just like the doctor ordered... then the top two middle.

Then two molars on top?

I think this "order" thing is just a "generally happens this way" thing!

O.k.--you can chill. Teeth come in any ol' way they want to. My baby got THREE of her top teeth in before then getting a single bottom tooth. It was kinda cute...
