Houston, we have a tooth!!!

Maricela finally has a tooth! It's her top right one. We first noticed something there last Saturday (April 21) but then I thought maybe it was a kankersore because it was just a little spot and I couldn't really see a tooth. But, the last three days she's had a runny nose and a fever, and yesterday we were finally able to feel a tooth. The other girls all started getting teeth around 6 months and had at least four by Maricela's age. And none of them ever got a fever while teething. Also, they all got their bottom left tooth first - the top right was the last of their first four. And it's Maricela's first to come in. So this has been a little bit different teething experience for us. I've been trying to get a picture of it, but she doesn't want it touched, she doesn't want anyone to come close to her mouth, and every time she has her mouth open and I think I can get a picture, her hand gets in the way, or something else. So I'll keep trying.But we're pretty excited that she finally has a tooth. Hopefully it won't take the rest of them very long to come in, cause she really likes to eat food, but it's hard when she can't chew anything up.
