Tonight is the last night I'll be looking at this precious little smile. Tomorrow Tessa is getting the first four (of many I'm sure!) brackets starting her orthodontic treatment! She already has an appliance in the roof of her mouth called a tongue crib. She has a tongue thrust (got that from me I guess) and it is supposed to help retrain her tongue to sit at the roof of her mouth. And since she is a little self conscious about her smile (REALLY?! At SEVEN!) they are going to go ahead and start braces on her front teeth to pull them back and together.
And although she doesn't like her little smile like it is, it's precious to me and I will miss it. It's just another sign of how fast she is growing up.
