First Tooth!!

I am proud to announce that B cut her first tooth on Saturday night - at exactly 6 months and 2 weeks old! This is a big deal because she has been teething for what seems like FOREVER - and I know this is obviously not the end of the burning red cheecks and the pain, but at least the tooth ball is a'rollin', and maybe the rest won't be so hard for her.

So here's to you, B Mya, congratulations!

And now I will share Mya's favorite song with the blogging world:
(sung to the tune of "Free Falling" by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers)

She's a big girl, loves her momma
Loves Daddy, and Lolo too
She's a big girl, crazy 'bout her binky
Loves bottles, and all kinds of food
And she's B, B Mya
And she's B, B Mya

Embarrassing for me, but she LOVES when I sing it and gives me HUGE smiles every time I do. For some reason we've always put our kids names into random songs (mainly Bryan) - for instance:

All you need is Lo, Lo, Lo is all you need...
Her name is Lolo, she was a showgirl...
How much is that Lolo in the window, I do hope that Lolo's for sale...(Lo makes us use all of our names - we are all for sale)
And Bryan's personal favorite right now is to just sing "B Mya" over and over again to the A-Team theme song. Classic.

Don't judge - you all do and say weird things with your kids, so don't act like we're the only odd ones!

Whew! It seems like that took forever because it did! I hope the rest of her teeth come in unseen and unheard until you notice them at least! That's the best! Annie for instance got her first 2 teeth LONG before i noticed! Aunt LaRae is the one who said "this baby has teeth!" and I thought "Crazy ole lady" but no, just me the terrible mom who didn't even notice her 3mo old was teething! (that's right, 3 MONTHS OLD!) HAHAHA, still makes me laugh! And I love hearing you guys singing those songs, I used to do the same with my babes (my dad did it to us when we were little!)

I have one song that my grandpa used to sing to me. I changed it for Boston's name then for Elsie's name. Sometimes I forget who I'm singing to. I was singing it to Boston a couple of days and sang several verses before I realized I was saying mamma loves this girl, this Elsie girl. He didn't even notice.
