Dr. Fang

Lilly had her first visit to the dentist on Wednesday. She was so excited. She had gone with me in July to watch me get my teeth cleaned and meet Dr. Swang. Well, she talked and talked about "Dr. Fang" after that. In fact, a couple days later at a wedding shower for Kristin and Branson, Lilly loudly introduced herself to a 90-year old woman as "Dr. Fang!" when the woman asked her what her name was. I'm sure the woman thought we were very strange. Anyway, when we went this week for her first cleaning, she loved every minute of it. I was very worried that she wasn't going to cooperate about the "thing that they put around your neck" as she calls it. She will not wear a gown at the doctor's office, a cape to get her haircut...and was seriously stressing out for days before we went over the bib at the dentist's office. But, she wore it just fine. It was truly a 3-year-old miracle. I'm glad she had fun, because we get to go back very soon. She had one little cavity. I hope that visit goes half as well...

Getting used to the "thing around your neck"


During the cleaning--notice her hand on the hygenist's hand. She kept it there the whole time just in case she neede to push her away, I guess. We both thought it was pretty funny.

I can't stop laughing at her little hand, I totally want to do that at every dentist appointment. I hate the dentist. Too funny! Glad she did well.
