First Baby Teeth - Gone!

From our facebook page on February 20, 2013:
Look what happened to Alyzabeth today. Two baby teeth EXTRACTED! I almost fainted; she did great - no tears, a brave girl! Her two permanent teeth are already in, right behind the stubborn baby teeth! Thanks Dawn Minney Cope for your note (Rosie had the same procedure a few weeks ago). We survived. Now to shell out the Tooth Fairy's big bucks for two teeth!

For a few months, we have watched AA's "big" (permanent) bottom two teeth begin pushing up through her gums, but a little behind and sideways to her bottom baby teeth. We made an appointment with her Dentist as the baby teeth were not becoming loose or wiggling at all. Sturdy and stubborn! And they were pushing her baby teeth toward the front creating gaps between her teeth. We had a feeling the Dentist Gary would "extract" them. We were so right!

This photo shows her permanent teeth right behind the small peek of the holes where her baby teeth were. Her permanent teeth are already about halfway in.

I am hoping the next baby teeth conform with the normal process of becoming loose and falling out naturally. Just think of the cost $$$ if we need more "extracted"! The first two are gone, onto more growing up!
