New Teeth, Old Teeth

New teeth, old teeth. Red teeth, blue teeth. One tooth, two teeth. I feel like I should be writing a Dr. Seuss book...
As many of you know, Haylee surprised us with permanent teeth on her 5th birthday. And then about 6 weeks later another tooth. YIKES!! She is too young to be growing permanent teeth. And this is what the dentist said too. Usually, kids start closer to 6 when they get the big teeth; not in Haylee's case. In fact, she was getting the new teeth and not losing the baby teeth because they were coming in so far back behind the baby ones. And they are 1 1/2 times the size of the baby teeth HUGE!! Having a mouth full of several sets of teeth isn't fun!! So, after a trip to the orthodontist and several to the dentist; Haylee had THREE teeth pulled on the 17th. Now her large teeth will have a place to go. And we will begin annual visits to the orthodontist. Who knew that these trips would begin sooo soon!! Not me. I decided that this is coming from Derek's side, not mine.
