Boots and Teeth

My Sister, Leslie, is getting married in October and as part of the table center pieces we're putting cowboy boots with flowers in them. My Aunt Mary Ann works at Reams in Spanish Fork so my Mom had her get some boots for us. Well, Jordyn is IN LOVE with this pair she has on. They fit so perfectly and she loves to stomp on the floor. I'm excited for the Spanish Fork Rodeo so she can wear them and show them off.
AND...today I took Jordyn to the dentist for the very first time. Our pediatrician told us we needed to take her before her 24 months check-up.
In preparation, I've been talking about it for a week now. Every person we saw got to hear all about how we were going to the dentist and he was going to check our teeth. I wanted her to be excited and not scared.
When we got there she was so cute. She walked in and saw the big fish tank. She loved that "Monsters Inc." was playing on the TV and that they had cute chairs that were just her size. When they took us back for pictures (x-rays) she sat super still. After that she got to lay down on the pretty purple bed and watch "Nemo" on the ceiling.
I can't even tell you how surprised I was. Jordyn did so well. She even let them clean her teeth and they told me they don't usually do that until they are three years old. She did get a little scared when the doctor came in because he is a boy, and that is scary to little girls...but she did let him look at her teeth.
Jordyn didn't have any cavities! I was told that she needed to loose the binky and we needed to work better on brushing. All in all, it was pretty awesome. I'm very proud of my little girl.

Wow! That is very impressive! I couldn't get my 4 year old to hold still for x-rays so they just gave up. Hooray for no cavities!
