As Emily nears the ten month mark she still has her gorgeous gummy baby smile. While most babies sprout a tooth around the six or seven month mark I am not nervous about her delay. According to my mother I rocked a toothless smile until I was almost a year and a half. It's clear that when it comes to my daughter's dentition there is no timeline thanks to genetics.
But... I think that teeth may be on the horizon.
Well a slightly feverish, screaming baby gumming everything one minute and then throwing things the next is a good indication. I think. While nothing has budded through the surface and I have no experience knowing what pre-teething symptoms really are like I have a hunch that this is it.
Or else Emily is getting some sort of summer cold.
Either way, lots of snuggling is going on.
