Appropriately in time for Halloween, E has decided to sprout a few razor-sharp baby fangs! (Tangent: You could write it as Hallowe'en, if you prefer the pretentious apostrophe, to remind people that it derives from All Hallows Eve so making up things like Jesusween are doubly stupid because it isn't hallo-ween, it's hallow-even. Even for "evening", but shortened like in hymns to keep the appropriate meter. Grammatical rant over.)

See, we knew ages ago that he had cut his first tooth. Really, we were holding off the Dorky Parent Announcement until said tooth was well and truly visible...the better to capture it on film for posterity. I was all set to make another attempt to photograph it yesterday, when what to my wondering eyes should appear, but the flash of another tooth! Now cue the image of me wrestling my child and trying to convince bribe him to show me his tooth for the better part of 10 minutes.

as we try to capture the elusive teeth on camera...
After numerous bouts of fussiness and crankiness that we were sure would yield some budding teeth, but instead were just fussiness and crankiness, we felt really vindicated to see those little fangs. Sure, it took the better part of a year, but at least now I know E won't be the Toothless Wonder forever.
