scarlett turned 10 months on the 28th. that same week scarlett went from scooting lump to speed demon. after months of non-crawling scooting(which seemed to please her just fine) she took the plunge and actually used her arms and legs for movement instead of rolling, squirming, squishing and blobbing around the house. thank goodness she left blobbing around the house for me to do. i love an evening of blobbing. especially after a big dinner of mexican food and ice cream.
when she was bored with an afternoon of crawling, she decided cruising furniture was next on her list.
still, with these hugely important accomplishments, NO TEETH! not a tooth in her head! reagan had teeth at 4 months. i am beginning to worry that no teeth are ever going to come. it's my punishment for pouring water in my brother's bed and trying to convince everyone david had a bed-wetting problem. it was really funny at the time, but was it worth this? she will be the only kid in kindergarten with dentures. i will have to buy polident for my child before i need to buy it for me. until now my greatest tooth phobia was me losing my teeth while biting into a whether's original hard candy or as the result of a freak roller coaster accident(it could happen). but no, having a child with no teeth is worse. definitely worse. how can i be a stage mother and shamelessly promote my child/model/cash cow to support my wicked shoe habit if all she has to show the casting director is a mouth full of gums. gummy o'hara doesn't work for me. they are beautiful gums, but gums don't pay the light bill.
