May 5, 2011

Kate had her much anticipated (well, highly anticipated for the past two days) first visit to the dentist today!

Honestly, I was a little concerned that the actual visit would not match up with her preconceived notion of the fun she was going to enjoy -- but that was not the case. Contrary to what you might have expected, this was -exactly- the kind of fun she'd had in mind! Here, she's donned her glasses and is choosing her new toothbrush.

Explaining the pick and the counting of the teeth -- we really love this pediatric dental practice and their patient, kind way.

I have no idea how Kate knew exactly what to do with this suction device (was she really watching Suki that closely?) but she was a total pro.

Kate was so composed and calm through this whole visit -- she asked questions (like, "what flossing mean?") when she didn't understand something, she did exactly what the hygienist and dentist asked -- I was floored.

And she was so proud of herself.

Choosing a treat while the dentist looks on.

A little post visit play time.

The now traditional dance of accomplishment after a dental visit.

What the heck is this bug?

Whatever it is, these two were fascinated by it.

Pointing out flowers.

We went to the Paper Source and did some window shopping and then doubled back to the dentist's office to pick up a toy left behind, and then it was lunchtime. We went to this organic wood fired pizza place and had some -delicious- pizza.

Then we went on to school to pick up Grace.

Here she's showing off a sparkly stone.

Then Suki takes a turn as spinner.

Climbing Suki...

And climbing Kate. These two are awesome at these narrow ladders now.

At the tops of their respective ladders.

My sweet, funny girls.
