Kylee’s 1st Tooth

Halee noticed that Kylee was getting her 1st tooth just yesterday. She was carrying her to the car and Kylee opened her mouth enough for Halee to see a small white tooth poking through her lower gums. It is tough to see as she isn’t exactly cooperative. But you can definitely feel the tooth when you rub your finger across the gum. It also helps explain the past 2 nights and how little sleep Kristee was getting. Kylee got up at least 3-4 times during both nights.  I am posting a photo of a shot of her lower gums. You can’t really see anything just yet, and yes she wasn’t happy about me attempting to get a photo.

It will be interesting to see how she changes as the teeth all begin to come in. It amazes me how much teeth change the look of a baby.

Halee Lost Her 1st Tooth

Halee finally lost her 1st tooth this evening. She has had this tooth that was loose for the past week. She kept working on it but would never let Kristee or I yank it out for her. She was so excited to finally lose her very 1st tooth. She had a friend in kindergaten last year that had lost several of her teeth so she was ready to lose one of her own. I posted a video on YouTube of her reaction after losing her tooth, you will have to check it out.

Swimming Lessons

Since summer has arrived and swimming is on top of the kids list of things to do, we decided to get them in some swimming lessons. This is their first swimming lessons and they started them last night. We are doing them at the YMCA, they run for the next 2 weeks each day M-Th for 45 minutes in the evening. They both were a little nervous to go, although Gavin was really just excited about going while Halee was more of the nervous one. They both came out all excited and had a blast. They spent the first part evaluating them to put them into their respective classes. Then they started learning various techniques from floating to kicking to strokes. I think this will be really good for them to not only learn to swim, but also interact with some of the other kids that are in their classes. I hope that they can learn the basics and can get the hang of it and then maybe I can take over and continue to work with them.
