Shark teeth

Look what we discovered last night. K. has two grown-up teeth growing behind his baby teeth and his baby teeth are very loose.


To me this is the final proof that K.'s development stalled for two years in the orphanage and he really is not just two years delayed, but really two years younger than he should be... as if someone hit the pause button on his life. Teeth tell a lot and first new teeth come in sometime during a child's fifth year. K. is, age-wise, 7 years old, but really he's five. According to his teeth.

This is so funny! Evan's teeth are exactly the same right now. Their mouths are a carbon copy of each other. I too was waiting to see when he would loose his first teeth. One of his front "baby" teeth is wiggly, the other is still pretty firm. The dentist said to give it a few months, so we shall see. So, I don't know if it is genetics, or just lack of nutrition in those early 18 months of his life.

We had shark teeth, too. And a two year delay.
