Oh, Niko is so handsome! Marcos would go crazy over that Thomas shirt.
That's great. I wish I was there with ya but it's not quite time yet!
Rainy, I hope your DH is better. How sad.
The dentist- I have just discovered that Marcos has at least one cavity. I am horrified and appalled, as Lula and I do not have any, and I somehow thought he would be the same. It looks like his molars have really deep cusps, and they just trap particles that are really hard to brush out.. I had the same issue when I was an older kid, and the dentist put some kind of sealant on top of the adult molars. I guess it worked since I have never had a cavity. I am not at all pleased at the prospect of taking Marcos to the dentist- he has never been, because he has an extreme anxiety when strangers want to touch him. He completely freaks out. He is like a trapped little wild animal, willing to chew off his own foot to get away. There will need to be some serious sedation to get this cavity taken care of.
I'm sorry I have no advice, nannymom. I know I'm going to do some research on the different types of cavity fillers before I go.
So yes, Koalamommy and I had a chicken pox playdate! She drove a long long way, and I hope her kids got good and infected!
I'm putting some pictures on Shutterfly now and I'll post them shortly.
