Nothing melts my heart more than Hannah's toothy grin. Not yet seven months old, her two bottom teeth have grown in, pearly white, tiny, and strong. Before their existence, I tried to make a habit of "brushing her teeth" before bedtime. Essentially it was just massaging her gums with a cold cloth so that the milk wouldn't settle in overnight. Now that she actually has mini-fangs (yes, she bites, and yes, I read Twilight while pregnant), I'm more conscious than ever to wipe down her teeth at night.
