When Grady was born, he was given a Sophie the Giraffe toy. I'd seen Sophie while shopping for baby stuff and I was surprised that someone had spent $25 on a teething toy. I put Sophie on the shelf and forgot about her.
Grady has been a fussy drool machine for a couple of weeks so I decided to see if he was interested in Sophie. You guys. We cannot get Sophie away from him. Sophie goes wherever Grady goes. We're thinking of buying another one just in case something tragic befalls the original (Stella has been plotting Sophie's demise since hearing the first squeak.)
Saturday morning, 4 months and 1 week after he was born, Grady bit me with his first tooth. A tooth! My little (erm ... 17lb ... not so tiny) baby has a tooth! I'm not ready for this.
