Und der Haifisch, er hat Zaehne, und er traegt sie im Gesicht!

My apologies for not knowing how to get the umlauts in there. I'm sure probably only Michelle knows what that means either, but it's one of my favorite phrases I remember from high school German.

Anyway, the operative word above is Zaehne, which means ..... teeth! Jacob has officially, at one day less than 20 weeks old, gotten his first tooth! It broke through this morning, after a week of grumpiness and discomfort. It is funny to watch him now, because he can't help playing with it with his tongue. Each time I look over at him, he is sticking his tongue out and grinning widely. We are both glad it has finally popped out! It is a bottom front tooth, and its partner is close behind, I bet it will be out by this weekend.

Troyer used to have the record for earliest tooth, but if I remember correctly, it was 5 days before he turned 5 mos, so Jacob has him beat!

Aw, that first tooth is always a bittersweet moment. I love the pic of him sleeping in his car seat. I keep coming back to look at it. You can imagine him snuggled up in the womb that way!
Gretchen, I just tagged you on my blog. Eight random things about yourself!

He has teeth now!

Tell him he must stop this nonsense and slow down just a bit and enjoy being a baby.

Time flies, doesn't it!!!
