Milestone alert - The pearlies are here

Unlike my previous haste, I have actually waited for the pearlies to appear before posting about it. Squiggles has now officially sprouted two teeth. The first one burst through her gum about 7-8 days ago and the second one broke through 2 days ago.

And to prove that she has them, she bit me on the shoulder yesterday and again this morning. Oh, and I got a nip on the breast as well. As a result, every time I feed her, I say a really long prayer before offering her my breast. And I thought breast feeding couldn't get worse, hah!

Oooh, congratulations and good luck to both Squiggles and her Mama!

What's the traditional celebration for this milestone? Can't forget the shower of coins and sweets for the first crawl :).

Oh my god - I have forgotten all this! The first teeth coming out etc! I just realized Squiggles is only few days older than baby girl and that means I too have to deal with all this biting etc pretty soon. Although I didn't go through any biting issues with KB - with her never know...they are both so different already in so many ways! You gotto post pics with her teeth showing! So sweet - my MIL (who is no more) used to tell me to make some sweet for milestones..I forgot about it. I like this tradition so much. You have inspired me to celebrate every mile stone.

congrats :)

we are dealing with spouting of the second set of pearlies these days!

Squiggles Mom said...

Suki - Oohhh need to check with my MIL. There must not be one otherwise she would have surely mentioned it. Will double check nevertheless.

Noon - I hope the teething goes smoothly with the baby. And please share those yummy sweets that you're going to prepare! Or at least tell us all about them.

Aryan's mom - Thank you :)

choxbox - *grins* does it get any easier?

Swati said...

Ouch... :-)

choxbox said...

yes in some ways - the cribs, if any, are verbal!

(btw that should read 'sprouting' not 'spouting' in my previous comment)

Moppet's Mom said...

Ooh, congratulations! And good luck with the feeding! ;-)

I know it must be hard to get back to Sing - although DD must be quite looking forward to having you two back. Enjoy!

Preethi said...

Squiggles Mom said...

Moppet's Mom - I think I'm ready to go back now. I'm craving routine and plus I need to start looking for a job! Will respond to your email at leisure when I'm back in Sing.

choxbox - :)

Preethi - I don't think 'fun' is the operative word here :)

Parul - Ah well.... at least someone understands and can empathise. Do you say a prayer too before you know?
