Sophie is one tough chick. She fell asleep on the way home from the dentist yesterday, content with the pages of stickers she was given as a ‘prize’ and her trusty pink pillow. Nary a peep out of her on the 1 1/2 hour drive home. Once we got home she was happy with her new DVD, Max and Ruby’s Christmas. She laid on that dang couch for most of the afternoon. But I was just happy to see her not miserable. She was only allowed soft foods and no dairy for the day so her menu options were definitely limited. We managed some Ramen noodles and some jello (raspberry, her choice) and a lot of apple juice. She snuck a short snooze in before bathtime, at which time she really perked up. I kept asking her if her teeth hurt as I was at the ready with the Motrin, but she never complained or even mentioned her mouth hurting. I know it must have (or at least it would have hurt me) because when we arrived home from the dentist, when I woke her up to get her out of her carseat, there was a little drop of blood at the corner of her mouth. Talk about breaking a mother’s heart 🙁 These pics were taken shortly after we got home yesterday and you can kinda still see the blood on her lip… poor baby.
I am so pleased with how her front tooth looks. I was concerned that it would look overly white, either making her other tooth look really discolored, or making her filled tooth look fake. I’m happy to say it looks pretty darn natural. Which is a good thing since she’s going to have these teeth for the next 3+ years!
Today she has been able to eat anything she wants to and she’s doing her best to make up for yesterday 😉 She’s watched every show on Noggin at least once. She’s colored. She’s played ‘doctor’ with Jude (using a hair band as a blood pressure cuff is pretty inventive!) She’s emptied out the toy basket. She’s still in her jammies (and it’s close to dinnertime). She has covered Jude’s bar with aluminum foil (not sure whose idea this was). And she has trashed, helped to clean up and trashed the house again. It’s been a good day 🙂
