The Youngest Dental Patient Ever!

The twins are doing very well. Halle looks bigger here but it's only because her photo was taken closer.

I said they were doing very well but had some anxiety the last 2 days, which actually affected all of us. You see, Halle was born with 2 baby bottom teeth. It happens though it is very rare. They are called Natal teeth. I believe it is 1 in every 3000 babies and they seem to have bothered her the last 2 days. You know how much pain a toothache can cause so she has been crying, which distresses her twin sister too, which naturally was also upsetting their mom and dad, and all of us. But that is all over now, because early this morning, the pediatric dentist pulled both teeth out. They were loose and endangering Halle into aspirating them.

Only 9 days old and already had teeth extraction. Poor baby! But she did so well.
All the other dentists and staff swarmed around to witness the clinic's youngest patient ever to be treated in that clinic. Halle was a celebrity! They were taking pictures too, lol. The poor baby, but she was a toughie though! It's good daddy was a toughie too and he was able to hold her cause her mom couldn't, and she was hiding in the corner behind the assistant. The staff was checking up on her more than  the baby, lol.
I felt so bad because I couldn't be there. I am presently with my other daughter, Tina, whose husband is presently away for a job promotion training and she needed my help with her 3 little kids. I was so relieved when Rochelle called this morning telling me that it was all over and it went fine. The babies are finally sleeping well again.
How about a big smile from Halle?
So content being held by their Tito Jed.
And just as happy being held by big sis, AJ and Tita Becky, my DIL.
They sleep like angels.
And Ate AJ is crazy about them.
Look at Halle with a big smile on her face again.
Look at Rea's eyes wide open!

Just thought I'd share these dresses that I just got for the twins. They were on clearance at Gap Kids. Still too big for them but I know how fast babies grow.
I love the material and the color.
The twins are very much alike in some ways. Here they were asleep but they had very similar positions and then they held hands. How cute is that?
And not to forget about my other newborn granddaughter, Resse, who is also growing very well.
And my step grandson, Wren, who is now more than 3 months old. I finally got to meet him last Monday. He looks so much like his dad but he definitely got his grandpa's head, lol, except for the color. He looks like he is going to be a redhead like his dad. They came to visit us in Natchez after Christmas but I was not there since I have been here in FL for my granddaughters' arrivals. But I was able to stop by their house on my way to Tina's. I am glad they were able to stay with John during my absence, at least he was not alone the whole time I am gone.
And my other 2 grandsons, Reese's big brothers, Nathan and Brendan, who were busy checking out some library books here. We all went to story telling time in the library this morning.

John's older daughter, Kerri have 3 children so that brings our grandkids to a total of 10.

Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing our joy while our grandkids multiply rapidly.

Oh, Christine... what a wonderful post. You are so blessed. I am so happy, first of all, that everything worked out for Halle. And I just CANNOT believe the SMILES on that baby's face! One can see how happy and content she is now that those bothersome teeth are OUT! :) And the twins together, holding hands is precious. And as for little Reese and Wren: beautiful children!! You are one lucky lady, Christine. I'm sure you and John are so proud. God bless you all.
P.S. Love those two dresses you got for the twins!

Your family, all of them are beautiful! You have two absolutely beautiful new grands to adore. I am so glad those teeth are out of her. I hope everyone is better now, that had to be stressful for all. All your grands are precious, and the twins are so sweet. I love newborns and to get two! I know you have to go home soon but my goodness you're going to miss those twins………Keep us to speed with them.

Thanks, Emily. I actually have 3 newborns. My other daughter had a baby girl on dec. 26, only 15 days before the twins. I miss my hubby and my home but I hate leaving the babies....Christine

bj said...

OOO, Christiney, they are all so adorable, I just can't stand it. Just beautiful and sweet and I know JUST HOW MUCH YOU LOVE 'EM....:)
I have heard of babies born with little teeth but never really saw one. So glad you got photos of her with her little teeth. Glad she did so well getting them removed.
Yes, little twins will just amaze you as you watch them grow. They are sooo close and really and truly know what the other is thinking, a lot of the time.I could tell you a lot of cute stories about our have some fabulous times coming with all your grands. :))
hugs, bj

xinex said...

Thanks, BJ! I can imagine how much fun you had seeing your grand twins grow cause it is so much fun to watch them interact with each other. Rea did not get some rest either when Halle's teeth were hurting cause every time she cried, Rea cried with her. Rochelle said they both finally got some good sleep last night. Have a good day!.....Christine

Traci said...

I worked with someone whose baby waws born with teeth! All of those grandbabies are absolutely adorable!!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Christine. Thank you for sharing your lovely family with us. You are very blessed.

Just look at all of these sweet faces. I would have been anxious when they were pulling those teeth, too, but she was a little trooper.

Dolores said...

Well natal teeth is a new one to me. It's good to hear they were removed without a problem.

I've never seen so many beautiful babies and children!!! You are blessed!

Bunny Jean said...

Hi Christine!

I heard about babies born with some teeth but didn't know they needed to be removed. So will she grow them back as he "baby teeth" or will she have a gap until her permanent teeth grow in?

I bet you are just in 7th Heaven with all that baby love!

xoxo Bunny Jean

Cindy F. Adkins said...

Congratulations, Christine! So many beautiful babies! Those pics of Halle smiling are so adorable! I've never heard of a baby being born with teeth! Amazing. I'm glad she's not in pain anymore! My Mother was a twin and I have two sets of twin nieces! So cute!
Hugs, Cindy

Lorraine said...

Precious babies, lucky you!! I'm glad to hear things are better now that the teeth are out. Very interesting!! Thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday!! ~Lorraine ♥♥♥

Debbie said...

Oh that poor little thing! I have never heard of that, and I'm glad they could take care of it. Based on the beautiful smiles of the rest of her family, I think the new ones she eventually gets will be just perfect pearly whites for grinning.

I love those dresses, too!

A Hint of Home said...

Poor baby! Glad all went well. They are so sweet!
Have a great weekend!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Wow, I'm in heaven looking at all these baby pictures. The little ones are just too cute! I can't believe all the fun you are having. So sorry about Halle's little teeth. I have never heard of that. Glad she did well with her procedure. Enjoy the babies!

Lynn said...

You are so, so, so fortunate to have all those precious babies!

Sue said...

What fun to see all of these sweet children, Christine! I'm glad everyone is doing well and thriving. Poor little Halle, having her little teeth extracted... Mom must really have stressed while in the dentist's office. As mothers, we don't like to see our children in pain or under stress. I bet John will be glad to have you back home again. You'll have to make him one great dinner - your food always looks so appetizing! :-)

Honey at 2805 said...

What precious babies! So adorable! Little Halle big trip to the dentist must have been stressful to all. Hope she and her sister and Mom too are all doing better now.

Thank you for sharing this precious post at Potpourri Friday!

Sherry @ A Happy Valentine said...

Poor baby Halle, and Mama and Daddy! I have to admit I would be hiding in the corner with Mama. The babies are precious and I hope they are doing well now.

I'm so very late with my Pink Saturday visits but I hope you had a great one!
