Sharkboys and Sunsets

Ross got his first grown-up teeth in the summer of 2005, before I started blogging. The new teeth grew in behind his baby teeth - they were halfway installed before the baby teeth even got loose. We called him "Sharkboy" and took pictures to preserve the weirdness. Who knows? Someday, we might need proof.

Lars recently discovered his own First Loose Tooth! Upon discovery, he called everyone he knew, leaving mystery messages on answering machines around the USA (he's really unintelligible with his finger
in his mouth to wiggle a tooth). Chris and I both inspected Lars for signs of extra teeth coming in ahead of schedule but didn't find any. A few days later, though, the wiggle update was dire; the previously loose tooth had firmed right back up and was no longer able to be wiggled! Then, today, we discovered that Lars is also a Sharkboy. The baby tooth is a bit wiggly again, but it probably won't come out before that new tooth is pretty well settled in!

P.S. His black eye is progressing nicely, don't you think? By tomorrow, it should have much nicer green tones and should look even more like a polluted sunset. It doesn't bother Lars a bit, but I think he regrets that it's not a hockey-related bruise.

Ross looks like he's in the Michael Jackson / Janet Jackson 'Scream' video!

You seem to find very interesting places to swim in the gene pool.

Does that happen with all his teeth, or just the bottom ones?

Jeremiah still has two baby teeth. One of his adult teeth is just sitting there behind the baby one, still patiently waiting its turn after 25 years.

I KNEW the shiner would get shinier before it got better! Ain't tooth genes nice? (You didn't get your first BABY tooth until you were 22 mo. old! If you search your gene pool, SOMEBODY out there on the Blackman side has this in their closet! (Oh yeah, hi Anonymous...any relation to the Withheld family?)
