Baby's First Tooth

You may have to enlarge the picture to get a little glimpse of Rose's first tooth, which just started cutting through last Thursday!

Don't you just love that face? We don't see it often, just when she is told "no" or isn't getting her way... In this case she really wanted to chew on the lens cover to my camera. The cute little stinker!

You know, I actually thought about titling this post "My Feelings Exactly" since I am pretty sure I made that same face after finding out how much sinks and faucets actually cost and how little of an allowance we have from the plumber! ;)  Argh! Remodeling is SO overwhelming!!  Nevertheless everything is moving along quickly and it won't be too much longer before we have our home (and then some!) back again. In the meantime I keep telling myself "It will all be worth it!" EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!

I hope you are all having a great summer!  I have really missed reading blogs and blogging and hope I'll be able to start visiting more soon!


  1. There is a light at the end of this tunnel and no, it's not a train! Keep chanting "fall baking, fall baking" and you will get through it all!

  2. The last shot of Rose's face was a classic. I would be kissing those cheeks everyday! AWWWW my baby is now 3. Yikes that went fast.

    The new home will be very well worth the time and patience it's taking you all.

    God bless!

  3. precious! I miss you too.

  4. Awwww...too cute. Congrats on the first tooth. Hopefully she'll limit her biting to things other than mom :)

  5. Just wondering what Canon camera you have? You post such great pics and I've been looking for a new camera.

  6. Joseph has just got his first tooth too.

    The shots of Rose are great. I haven't been able to get one that shows Joseph's tooth.

  7. Beautiful kids! The little sad face is just precious. Isn't it funny how early they know that they're being reprimanded =)

  8. Sending many many reassuring hugs your way. You are so close, you can smell the fresh paint!

  9. when you mentioned the plumbing expenses I thought of an ad I saw for 80% off of an already great price at
    for a
    Matco-Norca Crome Plated Brass Tub & Shower

    Their price: $39.99 PLUS Their super sale which means 80% off 39.99!!!!
    don't know if it would be of interest-just thought I would say something just in case

  10. Oh, there is indeed a tooth! Poor baby. Hope she cuts it (them) okay! I think that Maria is starting to teethe; she's chewing on everything, will grab my knuckles and push them into her mouth to gnaw on them and she's a little fussier than usual. Lots of spit up, too, although I think that's just because she's a greedy little nurser! ;)

    Good luck with your remodeling! Can't wait to see the finale!

  11. Thank you everyone for your sweet comments and encouragement!! I so appreciate it!

    April ~ I have a Canon Rebel XTi and I LOVE it! It is actually my 3rd - My first wasn't digital, my 2nd was stolen on a trip, and I've had this one for a couple years. It is great. Someday I'd love to get the new T2i - but that will probably be years from now.

    Anonymous ~ Thank you for the suggestion! I still need to choose bathroom fixtures, so I think I'll head over and see what they have.
