Beaver Teeth

This weekend, while Trevor was at home battling a severe case of stomach plague, Rose and I headed to Corvallis with Roger and Kathy for the Beaver game against ASU. You know it was a bad bug, if it kept Trevor home on game day. And boy was it bad! Rose rested up for her first tailgater on the drive down.

When she woke up, I was surprised and excited to see a speck of her first tooth poking through! I couldn't stop talking about it all afternoon. Grandma saw it, Uncle Dave saw it, Grandpa saw it...everyone at the tailgater heard about it. I was so proud that my mom radar had been correct. I had been confident all last week that the increase in night time wakings and ear pulling and cheek rubbing definitely meant Rose was finally teething - until Friday, when her fussiness disappeared with no tooth to show for it.  And then Saturday morning there it was, plain as day:

Well, plain as a winter day in the Northwest.

Rose's favorite sounds to make this weekend were juicy raspberries full of gusto:


After the tailgater, Rose was excited to spend the afternoon with her cousin Jessie, while mom and the GPs went to the game.  The Beavers won to everyone's delight. Go Beavs, clap, clap, clap...


Sunday morning, Trevor woke up a new man, almost. I was excited to show him the new tooth first thing, but when we finally got a gummy smile from Rose, it was nowhere to be found. Seriously, it has completely disappeared! Apparently, this does happen sometimes, but I can't help wondering if it was just a little bit of paper that got stuck for a few hours.

Rose tried out her new highchair and a new food yesterday - sweet potatoes! If it's been a while since you've tried a completely new taste, here's a visual progression of the experience:

Shock...
 Hesitance...

 Contemplation...

 Acceptance...
