Dentist Appointment

So Carter had his first dentist appointment last Thursday. We decided to make him an appointment after he fell and his front tooth started turning gray. I was nervous about bringing him to a dentist because it is honestly hard enough to brush his teeth let alone look around. So the entire day before I talked all about Doc Moore (that is what Carter calls him) and that that Doc Moore wanted to look at his smile and take a picture of his teeth.

Carter practicing his smile for Doc Moore before we left for our appointment!

Carter had so much fun at the dentist office. They had so many toys laying around to play with. The x-ray machine was down (of course) so Carter and his dental assistant got to play. When it was time for Doc Moore to look at his teeth he did great! The good news is that nothing had to be done that day and that Carter got 5 new toys from Doc Moore. The bad news is that we go back in 6 weeks for another x-ray. There was some swelling above one of his front teeth (the white one). Doc Moore is 90% sure that that tooth will start turning gray within 6 weeks. It would be better for Carter if both of his teeth were fixed at the same time. So it looks like next month little Carter will have 2 root canals. He said it is a 10 minute procedure and not as severe as an adult root canal. More that likely he will have to be put to sleep, which is better than tying him down. When it is all said and done Carter will have the prettiest, whitest teeth of any kid around (Doc Moore is going to paint them back white also). Keep Carter in your prayers and I will keep you updated.

Boy, n.:

This is the newest decor in Carter's room. Grandma (Chris's mom) found it and knew the best place for it to go. It looks really good right above his window. Every time we go into Carter's room he points to it and says Baba (aka Grandma).

We have had a really busy week this week. We bought our first rent house (so far Chris has not sold it). It had very interesting decor in it. We have had to put paint on everything except the ceiling which probably needs it too. Chris rented it out and they move in on Monday. I'll keep updating!!!

New Boots


A couple of weeks ago Denny Pa took Carter to get his first pair of boots. They were both so excited. Denny Pa ( my dad) has wanted to buy Carter boots since Christmas. They are John Deer green on the tops and really cute.

Carter giving DennyPa a hug Thank you!

Carter is so proud of his new boots. He won't take them off. I a had to go buy him longer jeans. Everywhere we go he will go up to complete strangers and tell them about his new boots. If we ever lose on of them we are in deep touble! Carter was in bed the other night about to sleep and remembered his boots were not on. I had to get up and find them. As soon as they were on he went right to sleep. He really does look so cute in them.
