Connor's First Dentist Appointment

There are moments in your life when the reality of the moment sinks so suddenly that it takes your breath away. The moment I held my first child...the moment I held my second...third...fourth...and the moment I realized I had a son (and not just a baby). It may sound like a wild exaggeration, but Connor going to the dentist represents the journey we're on - the journey to his childhood and the escape from his babyhood.

The last time Mr. Howard was at the Dentist's Office, they suggested that we bring Connor in for his first visit (more as just a practice visit - not to actually do anything). On Friday, Mar. 30th Mr. Howard and I took him in. I can't believe how well he did!

Dr. Cervantes counted his teeth, used the sucker (I'm sure there's a technical name for that), used the thing that sprays water and air, and the mirror to look at his teeth. The whole visit lasted a total of maybe 5 minutes and now hopefully when he goes in for a real visit, he'll be comfortable.
In the waiting room afterwards!! Good job, Big Boy!!
