Already?

Friday morning I woke up and discovered Owen is missing THREE teeth. Three! I knew they start losing them around four months, and as he turned four months on Thursday that makes sense, but I didn't expect him to be so prompt.


He was half asleep here and didn't want me to open his mouth, but there's a red spot where his top tooth fell out (to the left of the tooth you CAN see). The two bottom front ones are also gone.

Last night our friend Mary, her husband, and another couple came over for dinner and after a couple hours of running from person to person to person, then Oh! back to another person, Owen crashed.

Urk! He's sooooo cute! I feel pretty dumb - I didn't even notice our dogs losing their teeth as puppies. I'm a neglectful doggie mommy.

Robin, a couple people have said they'd either forgotten that puppies lose their teeth, or they had no idea in the first place. I have several friends with puppies around Owen's age and they've been talking about finding teeth all over the house, so I've been watching for it.

He's such a sweetie! :-)

That is one tired dog! LOL!

I hoped to find the teeth of the two cats I had as wee kittens, but I never saw a one. :-( I never even noticed when their teeth were gone! (Neither of them were that fond of me checking, so I didn't do it often enough.)

Adam, he says to please stop poking him. He's trying to nap. thx.

Natasha, I'm thinking he JUST lost them when I noticed yesterday because there was still a little spot of blood, but it's gone now. I'm thinking his molars will be easier to spot.

I didn't know puppies lost teeth, but that totally makes sense!

That photo of him sleeping in Ibis's arms is so adorable!!

Poor Owen. Exhausted after such a hard day. ;)

Melanie Avila said...

Nadine, I had forgotten, too, but fortunately several of my friends were talking about it.

Aimless, lol, thanks.

Gypsy, he worked HARD to entertain everyone!

I would love for Owen to crash in MY arms. What a cute little doggie.

Melanie Avila said...

Jewel, he's so sweet when he's tired like that. The rest of the time he's a terror!

So cute. I know it's weird. I heard they can swallow them too. That pic of him and Ibis is adorable :)

Awww....he's a cutie pie. I actually save a tooth from all my pups...if I find them, that is ;-) I can't help it- that's as close to having kids as I get!
