So, as excited as we are that Dax is finally getting teeth (!!!) I was a little discouraged today to find his cute little tooth coming in is a not-so-cute shade of brown. After freaking out a while I finally talked to his pediatrician, and she told me it's not uncommon for sick preemies to have discolored teeth, but it's even more likely that the discoloration was caused by the high levels of bilirubin when he was so jaundiced for so long. Not only can a baby's skin become discolored, the developing tooth buds can also be stained, and that's probably what happened. There is no fix for it until his baby teeth fall out and his permanents come in, and in the meantime we need to make sure to brush his teeth twice a day as he's at a higher risk for cavities. It makes me sad, but I guess in the grand scheme of things, and after all the narcotics and viagra he's been on, having the teeth of a meth addict probably makes as much sense as anything else! It'll go well with his chain-smoker's voice!
Family photo op. Not sure what Dax is looking at?
Yummmmm... Lola thinks the ducks look delicious!
Until this picture, I was 100% sure Shep was Tyler's father. Now I'm wondering if maybe there was a drunken night with Pac-Man or The Joker I forgot about?
