Today, Skunk was chewing on my finger (she does that a lot and has been for months) and instead of smooth gingiva, there was a sharp little tooth! I have been feeling and feeling and didn't feel lumpies or anything and today... the tooth. It is so subtle that you can barely see it if you know what you are looking for but she won't cooperate with a picture. So I have to wait until I can see it better. But I sure can feel it!

The weather has been beautiful - it is actually up in the low 70's the last 2 days. Yesterday was baking day so we had the windows open until 330p and nothing was smelly. Today, laundry detergent/fabric softener smell all around. God is so gracious that it wasn't there on baking day. Skunk is fussing so I can't post any more but I just had to record the tooth date. =D

Another Tooth Gone and Sitting up

Bear has lost another tooth!

And Skunk is trying to sit up.

Bear is behind Skunk so that when she falls over she doesn't conk her head. =) She really is just balanced and when she leans, she falls over. But it is a beginning. And Skunk is chewing on everything but no pointy little teeth felt yet.

What precious girls God has given me!

Bear is a copy-cat...

Bear is sitting at her daddy's computer, playing Free Realms and saying "Let's rock and roll, guys!" Her daddy says the same thing when he is raiding on EQ or DDO. She is mimic-ing her daddy and is a gamer already. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. But she loves it - both the playing by herself and playing with Daddy. And it has helped her reading skills so maybe there is an upside?

Happy New Year!

WOW! 2010... I must be getting old if this sounds like sci fi fantasy. lol We are trying to survive the holidays but our neighbors are smoking their chimneys something fierce. Bear and I were out for 30 minutes today and we had to take a shower upon returning inside as we were smoke-y. =(

I am cooking black eyed peas for supper though, in honor of New Year's. I hope Skunk is ok with them cooking. She reacts to so much that I get nervous about cooking anything new or different.

Bear and Skunk had a good Christmas - plenty of toys for the big one and a few for the little one to chew on. We also made a trip to Dallas between Christmas and New Years and it was pretty hard on the girls. But we enjoyed the change in scenery and very much enjoyed seeing Nana and PawPaw. We also got to see Uncle Burt and Aunt Tamar and Bear really enjoyed that so much. They are so sweet to play with her and she loves them very much. Tamar, if you read this, thank you so much for your effort with your hair. It made such a difference for the girls. Hooray!

I thinking that I am going to treat Skunk with antibiotics in Jan or Feb. I am praying for God's perfect timing and his healing for her.

Bear wants to watch a movie on the computer so I am going to sign off for now.
