Today was a big day in America. George Bush nominated John Roberts to the Supreme Court and E got his first tooth. Which is bigger news, you ask? That's for you to decide.
It's even tougher for me to decide. As the strict constructionist, I think that this nomination was a good choice. But those rantings are saved for the Blog Chicken.
So I realized today that E had his first tooth when he chomped down on my hand. And might I say I was SO GLAD it was my hand that found the initial discovery. We tried to take a picture, but apparently it is an invisible tooth that just feels really sharp when your knuckle gets chowed on. My friend Renee said he was very advanced but I brought it to her attention that this is not one of those situations where you want your offspring to excel. You want your child to be the first one among his peers to be potty trained or to stop biting. These things are important. Knowing that I have YEARS left of this and that we started early is slightly disconcerting.
Reality is that I was a little sad that never again would I get an all-gum smile from him.
