At bedtime tonight, Wesley wanted me to feel the new tooth that is just getting ready to fill that cute gap in his mouth. My first thought was (Gross.) “I don’t want to put my finger in your mouth.” But he didn’t care, so I felt it anyway.
It reminded me of when his first baby teeth were coming in. I remember running my fingertip along his gums and feeling new teeth rubbing against my fingernail. My thoughts at that moment were something like… “If it’s broken through the gum, is it officially through? Can I record it in his baby book today? Or do I need to wait until it’s all the way through?” First teeth are exciting for a mommy. Even a nursing mommy. Every milestone is exciting.
Tonight when I told him that it reminded me of feeling his first baby teeth, he rolled his eyes like I was being a disgustingly sentimental woman.
But I think he liked it.
