Well, this past Monday Jake had a little accident. He was doing his usual holding onto the sofa arms and swinging like a monkey routine when all of a sudden, he fell on his face. At first I was relieved to see he just had a busted bottom lip, but then I looked closer and noticed one of his top middle teeth was pushed up into his gum. I am so glad my parents happened to be here or I would have been really freaked out! I called the pediatrician and they suggested and referred me to a dentist. Jake and I headed to the dentist a few hours later. He said that there was nothing to do, but it should come back down. He also suggested we see an oral surgeon to make sure Jake's jaw was okay from the fall. We did and everything was okay there too! Jake did so good at the dentist and this was his first time ever going. The dentist said that the tooth could become loose or discolored and may need to be pulled, but so far neither has happened. Thank goodness!
