This is really Ella's second dentist appointment. For some stupid reason, I didn't bring my camera to the first one. But, when I whipped out my camera at the office, we all agreed that I was documenting Ella's "first" appointment just to make me feel better! Aren't they sweet? :o)
Ella is such a trooper. She wasn't even scared for one second. With all of the praise she was getting for being a big girl, she felt so proud of herself.
The "spit sucker" was her favorite thing. She let it suck her cheeks in until it looked like her mouth was going to cave in. The dentist had to say several times, "Ok Ella, you can open your mouth now. I think we got everything in there." It was really funny. She just kept going cross-eyed looking at all of her spit go up into the tube.
I know the light is super bright on her face, but it was so cute how they put the sunglasses on her when the light came down for the final examination with the dentist.
When we got in the car and she said, "Mommy, they forgot to give me a shot."
I said, "What do you mean?"
She said, "They need to give me a shot so that I can get a bandaid for being a big girl."
I then had to explain to her that it was a different kind of doctor that gave shots and bandaids and that she was a very big girl at the dentist.
