...Cue the heavenly choir! Today, on his 11-month birthday, Preston's bottom left tooth has finally popped through. I can't tell you what a relief this is. For months- or, more specifically- since about Christmas, we've been "just sure" he's teething. Poor thing- He seems to be in a lot of pain and actually threw up yesterday, we think from swallowing so much drool and snot from his little running nose. So our toothless wonder is toothless no more!

Also- I'm a bit sad today because it's his last "baby birthday." :( Next month at this time, we'll be celebrating his 1st birthday and enter the world of toddlerhood. Speaking of his 1st birthday, we are already gearing up for the big event! He was a trooper today as I drug him in and out of stores looking for birthday party gear despite not feeling well. I got all my supplies to make his invitations today and we even checked out a birthday board book from the library this week so that he can read all about birthdays. I should probably start practicing making his cake now. (For those of you who are familiar with my baking skills, you understand what I mean.) Maybe I'll stick to sampling different ice creams. By the way, has everyone tried the Kroger Private Selection Moose Tracks? Well, you should. Really.

Have you ever seen a more pitiful face? "Get this thing off me, Mom!"

Have fun planning the party! The first birthday party tends to be a little bit more for the parents, friends and family but that's still have to go all out!
