After 7 months, John Adams got his braces off yesterday. He was so excited and so were we. All the months of making sure he brushed his teeth really good and wore his rubber bands and didn't eat anything that he wasn't supposed to had come to an end. In just an hour, he went from this:
He may have to have them again when he is older but we are just going to enjoy right now and not worry about later.
So to celebrate, for dinner, we had all the things he had really missed while having braces. Popcorn, peanuts, carrots, jelly beans, and starburst. We also had biscuits, bacon, and eggs. Not sure why I picked breakfast to go with this celebratory meal but that's what we had(maybe because it's easy).
He loved it!!! Who wouldn't love candy for dinner :)
We also have a climber in the house. I guess he couldn't see out the window. Our dog was outside and he couldn't get a good look at her through the door. I guess I should think of it as resourceful, right?
Climbing at the orthodontist office while waiting on John Adams. I think he tried climbing on every chair in there. Very thankful there were only a few people waiting. They may not have shared that feeling :).
And this is where we found Charlie yesterday while Charles and I were fixing dinner. Can't take my eyes off of him for even a second. Oh well, I'm sure I'll miss this stage one day. Right now, it just scares me to death to think of where he will try to climb next.
