Abby's New Teeth

Many of you know that Abby was born without two adult teeth. (The two bottom front ones.) She was actually born with her two front bottom baby teeth already in. Crazy, I know! It was funny how long those two baby teeth stayed in! She was advised by the dentist not to ever wiggle those teeth, that they needed to stay in there as long as possible! Abby was so great about that! She actually ended up having them pulled. Who knows how long those little things would have stayed in there! We were pretty amazed that they never came loose! Anyway, once those two baby teeth were gone, preparations were made for Abby's new fake teeth! (She really did not enjoy the impressions process!!) She has been so excited to get her new teeth! Well, yesterday was the big day!
Here is the "before" picture.
And here is the "after" picture.
Don't they look great! You would never know that those two teeth aren't real! (Click on the picture to make it bigger and you can get a better look.) She is very pleased with her new look! (Especially in time for school to start! Kids can be so cruel, if you know what I mean...)

I am so happy for her! I think this is a big confidence booster for her!

Thankfully Luke was a good boy at the dentist office! He had plenty to entertain him!
