Last Wednesday Miss Sydney FINALLY got her braces on. We have been seeing an orthodontist for over a year-and-a-half now. When we first started the process she did get some hardware placed in her mouth while we waited for her last 2 teeth to fall out. Well...those teeth decided to take their sweet time, a year to be exact. I was starting to think the day would never come!
Her mouth has been sore, but she is feeling better this morning. She has a list of things to do to help move this process along, but her braces are here to stay for the next 2 years. The most important thing for her is to make sure she wears her rubber bands pretty much 24/7. She can only take them off to brush her teeth. I can't wait to see the end result. Beautiful straight teeth along with those perfectly placed dimples...
are you kidding me?!
Over the weekend Jordyn had a big event. Her first school homecoming dance! Back in August Jordyn was out and about with my mom having a Jordyn day while we had the other 2 kids at soccer. Jordyn requested a trip to the mall and during the trip she found a dress that she fell in love with. My mom said it fit her like a glove and put it on hold so I could go back to take a look. Several weeks went by before I was finally able to find a night we could go to the mall and figured if the dress was still there it was meant to be (plus I had a coupon...holla!). Sure enough, the dress was there and my mom was right, it did fit her like a glove. Jordyn is in that odd between size - little girl clothes still fit, but are baby-ish and junior clothes are too big and in many cases not age appropriate so I was thrilled she found a dress that fit and that she loved AND most importantly was dad and mom approved.
On the day of the dance we had an insane schedule so we were tight on time to get her ready, but we managed to do so and were only 10 minutes late to meet up with her friends! Jordyn met up with 3 of her friends and let me just say, they all looked so beautiful.
This was her preferred pose for the evening!
My two girls mean the world to me and I am so proud of the young ladies they are blossoming in to. They make me smile (and roll my eyes) daily!
