And just like that, the awkward years began.

Mia received part if her inheritance in the form of braces over spring break. And I tell ya, you could feel the tween angst just bubbling up out of this child the moment she walked out of the orthodontist's office.

She now communicates with her brother in eye rolls and exaggerated sighs. It's so wonderful.
She instantly looked older.  But not too old for me to drag her into my lap and squeeze the life out of her. I promise she will never be too old for that.
Less than a year ago she was a baby! A sweet, innocent, crooked toothed baby.
And now? She is staring at herself in the mirror from multiple angles.
I'm kind of dying inside.

Hopefully her teeth turn out as gorgeous as yours!

What a difference a year makes!

But I agree with do have good teeth. I know, it's a weird complement.
