Today marked another milestone for one of our children....you know...crawling, walking, first tooth, first words, first day of school, first lost tooth, FIRST PHASE OF BRACES. Matt and I knew this day was coming b/c our children have inherited our teeth. Both of us wore braces for many years and it looks like the children will follow in our footsteps. They do things a little different now and a little earlier than when we were children. Claire is in Phase 1 of braces. She has four brackets on her front four teeth and the orthodontist thinks they should straighten up in 4 to 6 months...we shall see. She already has a beautiful smile....now it will be a little straighter!
Wow! Is it just me or does Claire look about 10 years older?? Don't know if I like this braces thing or not!
