After having a much needed discussion on cleanliness in our house with the little girls, I couldn't help but chuckle at Ivy's prayer the other night.
"Jesus, help me be nice. Help me wash my hair good so I don't get bugs."
On another note, Ivy had her first filling at the dentist today. On her permanent front tooth she had a spot. It took me a while to find it since that tooth was way up in her cleft area of her mouth. The doc said the spot was from lack of enamel. It finally earned the right as a cavity last month during her 6-month check. It is amazing to see that tooth quickly sliding down into place since her surgery back in December. I can actually see the tooth pretty good when I pull her upper lip back. Anyway, after many tears, slobber and a drippy nose, the tooth with the spot is all fixed and one color. She cries at every doctor visit, no matter if the doctor touches her or not. I was amazed to see her crying at her first eye exam. The poor doctor never put a finger on her and had to contend with teary eyes.
Tomorrow, off the cleft clinic to see what the next step will be. I'm guessing it will be braces to move those teeth down to where we can actually see them! And one day soon, she will be able to pronounce the many sounds that need front teeth to make. I'm looking forward to it.
