Tooth #6

Tooth #6 is a surprise again. We were waiting for the one on the bottom (so that Maxim would have to up and 4 down, as so many other kids). But this kid is special and even his teeth prove so. His upper gum gave birth to another tooth and the score is now:

Upper gum vs. Lower gum – 3:3.

This game is so much fun to watch!

4th tooth is out

While the thrill is gone, both Olga and I are still waiting for each Maxim’s tooth. The fourth one tricked us though. We thought it would be the second tooth on the top, but it turned out to be the third one on the bottom (on Maxim’s left).

Now that I think of it, there are plenty of betting opportunities here. Not only the dates can be bet upon (for the closest match), but the next teeth position as well. Tooth casino!

Another tooth is out. It gets creepy.

Maxim’s third tooth came out yesterday. This time it’s from the top gum. The thrill is somewhat gone – we’ve been waiting for it for far too long, and there are still 29 or so to follow. And than we’ll go over the cycle again in a few years.

There is a difference from the previous two teeth though. And Maxim figured it out pretty fast – he can make sounds with his teeth only. He puts his teeth against each other and moves his jaw back and forth. The weirdest sound ever. Especially in the morning. It sounds like something in between a heavily blocked nose and a really old door. It took me a while to find the source…

The second one

Well, I guess they will be coming out a bit slower than I though… Maxim’s second tooth appeared today. It also came out of the bottom gum.

I hope that this tooth was the reason for his crazy behaviour during the last couple of days. As far as I remember, we went through something similar about a month ago. I wonder if all of his 32 teeth will be causing him to misbehave. We’ll see…
