My Two Front Teeth

We found these letters that GTB wrote to Santa.

December 1, 2007 

Dear Santa:

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth.  I’m eight months old, I’ve already learned to walk, but I still don’t have any teeth.  If I don’t get some soon, the other kids will start to make fun of me.  Could you please just bring me my teeth for Christmas?

Love, GTB

Dear Santa:

In the last few weeks, I finally got a few teeth.  My two bottom middle teeth came in, and then two of my top teeth came in.  The funny thing is that it wasn’t my middle top two teeth (i hear those are called central incisors), it was my side teeth (the lateral incisors, according to adults).  My mom and dad think its kind of weird, but we both know that it’s because you’re bringing my front two teeth on Christmas morning just like I asked.  Thanks Santa!

Love, GTB

ps.  I included some pictures to show you that I’m taking good care of the teeth I already have.  I promise to take good care of my front two teeth too.

Dear Santa:

I thought you were bringing my two front teeth for Christmas.  They still aren’t here yet.  What happened?  Did they fall of the sleigh?  Are they on back order?  I need you to hurry up if you can.  Everyone’s calling me names like “hippo,” “fanged beast,” and “wolverine.”  I got two more bottom teeth, but I’m worried that no matter how many teeth I get, I’ll never be able to live down these nicknames if you don’t help me out soon.

Love, GTB

ps.  Here’s a picture of my hippo teeth.  See how big they’ve gotten?

Friends Don’t Hug Friends

GTB tends to be a pretty social kid.  He’s also quite affectionate, which his parents love but other kids aren’t always so sure about….

This series of pictures occurs over the course of about 30 seconds during which GTB tries to give Bennett a hug.  Check out Bennett’s reaction 🙂
