September's been quite the month for James. He officially started walking on his own, socialized with other children through a playgroup, and had allergies diagnosed. We can now add his first real injury to the list of milestones for this month too since tonight while playing in our living room, he fell and chipped a tooth on our coffee table.
It really sucks. He seems fine and not in pain and I've even put him to bed but I am upset about the tooth. It's one of his front teeth. The chip is a pretty good sized oval and right in the middle of his tooth. (Not just a tiny chip on the bottom) One of the edges is sharp and his gum looks a little inflamed. I'm sure he'll have to see the dentist right away and have some filing or patching done. He hasn't even had these teeth for a full year!
The ironic part of the story is that last night at my inlaws we were talking about teeth. Jake knocked his front teeth out as a kid around the time he was two, and we were talking about my sister who's had 3 different bad incidents involving her front teeth. Now today this! I guess I would rather he chip his tooth than break an arm, but I still feel sad even though in the grand scheme of things it is no big deal. Kids chip their teeth.
