The Proof is in the Toof

When Bennett was first born, people initially declared he looked just like his daddy. But as Bennett grew older, it became apparent that he was definitely his mother’s child.From the bluish-grey eyes to the dimples on each cheek, Bennett definitely looked a lot more like Allison and a lot less than his old dad. Don’t get me wrong, this was a good development. We all know that I married up. So the fact that my son is developing some quite dapper looks makes me incredibly happy.

With less of my traits appearing in Bennett, people started talking. Then, just before my friends began to really examine what the mailman looked like, the first bit of evidentiary proof of my paternal involvement appeared. That’s right…Bennett was cutting a tooth! Now most people that have seen me and my father have commented that we have a beautiful smile, which is just a nice way of say “my gosh your teeth are huge and really fill out that smile.”

It looks like Bennett is going to take after his dad after all. In fact, just a few days after tooth one appeared, we noticed he was quite irritable (obviously, his mother’s child) and we noticed that Bennett didn’t have one tooth he had two! You know what they say, like father like son.
