Finally a tooth!

Today Maddox woke up happy as normal.  Marshall took her so I could sleep a little longer (don't I have an awesome husband?) and when I came downstairs she was napping.  After she woke up we were playing on the floor and I saw a flash of white when she opened her mouth!!  So- I stuck my finger in to feel around, and sure enough, one of her bottom teeth has broken through!  It took a while, but I captured a picture of it!

Marshall said to me "Now all of our fun is over for the rest of our life...".  Hahaha!  I said "You didn't think that the day she was born??".  No way, the fun has just begun.  I just can't believe that my little girl is no longer a little baby. 

Now, my sister tagged me on her blog- and I'm supposed to tell you 5 unimportant things about myself.  I decided to think about it for a little while, because most of the people who read this blog know me fairly well- so what can I tell you that you don't already know?  I think I've come up with a few things that most of you don't know.

1. In Elementary school there was a talent show- I don't remember what grade.  I told my teacher and everyone that rode my bus that I was going to sing Paula Abdul's "Opposites Attract".  I even practiced on the playground.  When I went to the practice session the Chorus teacher told me I couldn't sing that.  I ended up singing "America the Beautiful".....BARF!!!  Everytime I hear that song I think about how I could have rocked out some Paula Abdul and how "the man" kept me down.

2.  I really like the movie "Pollyanna"- the old one with Hayley Mills.  Really, I do.  I used to watch it at my grandparents house while they played Swedish Rummy with my parents.

3.  I was jealous of my sister because she had a tutor when we were in high school.  I really wanted a tutor and didn't understand (at the time) why my parents would get one for her and not for me.

4. I am the person that sits in the aisle at the grocery and compares the price per ounce, etc.  I'm sorry that I'm in your way, but I really do need to know which packet of mozzarella cheese is $0.18/oz and which is $0.15/oz.  At the commissary at Langley people get so peeved at me, but normally end up talking to Mdx while they wait.

5. I HATE hate hate (just ask my husband) having to call anywhere I might have to talk to a stranger on the phone.  I don't even like ordering pizza.  I'm fine with strangers in person, but strangers on the phone give me the creeps.

That's all!  I think I'm supposed to tag 3 people who will answer the questions I tag Reva, Tina, and Angela.

The picture with the tooth is SO COOL! Great shot Mary! I didn't know you were jealous of me having a tutor! It really wasn't glamorous at all... It was because my brain didn't work right! You're lucky you were born the smarty pants!

Oooo, teefs! It was kind of depressing when I'd stick my finger in her mouth and she'd clamp down and something pointy would get me. But those little teeth are so blasted cute anyway - I looove her fang!

that's so funny about the calling thing. when sean and i first got married we would constantly fight about who would make the phone calls. a couple years into our marriage i became the designated caller. i sure hope the next person i marry will make calls. lol
