Dentists and V-Day Surprises

Yesterday was Ellery's first trip to the dentist! I was preparing myself for a rough visit but to my surprise and delight, Ellery was an angel! She just sat in my lap and opened her mouth in order for the dentist to remove plaque, floss, and brush her teeth with bubble gum toothpaste. It was amazing! She is a girl after her mom's heart - I love getting my teeth cleaned! The dentist promised her a look inside the huge toy chest which didn't hurt either. We were concerned because one of Ellery's front teeth is not descending, but the dentist said it was from her pacifier. It is good to know that there is a tooth up there! After my consulation with her, it looks like Ellery is headed for a mouth full of braces down the road.

On another note, Happy Valentines Day! I have a great picture to share of Ellery someday (hopefully soon). We were outside this morning before school and she was playing with this huge heart balloon I bought her yesterday at the grocery store that even plays music. Nathan came home for a few minutes which is out of the norm (I will tell you what he was up to in a second) and Ellery was showing him the balloon. He thought it was weighted at the bottom and before we knew it her balloon had taken flight. This of course led to many tears, but he did promise her a new one.

So when I got home today, there was another balloon waiting by the door for her with elmo stamps attached to the string. I thought how sweet of him to have gone right out and purchased her a new one. But the sweetness doesn't end there. He had put elmo valentines in all of her favorite spots around the house - the kitchen cabinet she likes to reorganize all the time, the backyard door, her table and highchair, the bottom of the stairs, etc. etc. It was just adorable! I can't wait for her to get home and discover all of her little surprises! And for me, there was a bouquet of about 3 dozen multi-colored roses and extra-long twizzlers! He sure does know the way to his girls' hearts!
