Me and My Llama...

...goin' to the dentist. Raise your hand if you know that song. :)

Eli had his first trip to the dentist yesterday! I wish I had a picture- he was so cute sitting in that big chair.

We talked it up big-time in the weeks before we went, so he was super excited to go. :) We happen to looooove our dentist, so I'm happy that Eli feels the same! Our hygienist is a friend of ours, and she was so good with Eli. He played with toys and watched me get my teeth cleaned, asking every three minutes, "My turn now?" He met the dentist, who is so good with kids, and Eli thought he was just the coolest person ever.

When it was finally his turn, he got a little scared, but when I offered to hold him on my lap, he was happy to climb up in the chair. He let the hygienist count his teeth and look at them with that little mirror, holding his mouth open and cooperating the entire time! I was so proud of him!

The best part for him was picking out a new toothbrush (He chose a yellow one with baseballs because "Daddy, Eli like baseball.") and toothpaste and sticker. He stuck that sticker on his shirt, clutched his toothbrush and toothpaste, gave everyone hugs, and marched out of there so very proud of himself. It was adorable!
