Hello Tooth!






At last! Malakai's first tooth at the bottom made an appearance yesterday - the other little one can't be far behind either!

I am very excited that's he's going to start being able to chew bigger chunks of food - although, I am still a bit worried about his swallowing abilities! Although I wanted to make a conscious effort to give Malakai bigger and bigger pieces of food to swallow, I haven't done so consistently, so I really don't know if he can handle it or not... He has no fear or aversion to texture or taking bigger pieces into his mouth - it's just when it comes to swallowing he chokes up, even on pieces of food that are soft (like melon).

Otherwise, I've also added a few pictures of my little man with his purple hairy thingy that he clearly LOVES!
