T-Minus 18-24 Months

On Tuesday big changes took place for Maddie...

She got her top braces put in!  She was quite excited to get this process started.  Her teeth were really starting to bother her.  Her mouth was so crowded; she has had one tooth that hasn't been able to grow into place and is way up high in her mouth.  She had oral surgery a couple weeks ago to remove two adult teeth to make room.  Mike, Jake, and I had a few giggles over her recovery from being put to sleep for that, but she has no recollection of anything.

Her mouth is still fairly sore but she knew to expect that.  I think the anticipation of braces was far better than the reality.  We just keep telling her though...think of the end results!

I am so incredibly excited for Maddie. She is such a gorgeous girl, and having straight teeth will give her that extra little boost of confidence that feels so good. She will do awesome. High five to Maddie, and a low five to your wallet. ;)
