Back in the Spring when we took Adalyn for a dental check up, we went ahead and scheduled her next appointment for the Fall and we also scheduled Landon's very first appointment for then as well. 6 months went by super fast and his first appointment finally came! We planned it during Fall Break so Adam and I could both go. I really was not sure how he would act at the dentist just due to the fact that he pretty much freaks out when my mom cuts his hair. A few days before their appointment we started telling him about it and showing him what they would do to his teeth. Adalyn of course was super excited to go.
Last Thursday our appointment was at 8:30 and the kids played in the waiting room for a bit before they called us back. They played the Wii and watched Doc McStuffins.
When they called us back, they weighed and measured each kid.
Then they took Landon's picture since it was his first visit! It is now hanging on our refrigerator. :)
First up was Adalyn. She looked like an old pro climbing in the chair. She was so excited! They also did some xrays as well.
As her prize, she chose a flashlight. :)
Next was Landon!
He climbed right in the chair and grabbed his monkey they had waiting for him. He was so excited about it!
He was so good at following directions and listened to everything they said.
They of course explained what they were going to do and Adam and I both knew he wouldn't care much for the noise of the toothbrush tool. The kids each have an electric toothbrush at home and while Adalyn loves to brush with hers on, Landon is adamant that we not turn his on at all. It's somewhat comical when we do turn it on and his face just freezes and says "no, no, no" over and over again. haha.
As she started doing this, you could hear panic in his voice and she pulled out a Jake and the Neverland Pirate toothbrush and everything was good! She even let him brush too so he enjoyed that. I snapped a picture of him doing it but it must be on Adam's phone. The entire time he just layed there like he was suppose to... and I have to say, I was somewhat shocked. ha! I have said it many times before but Landon definitely marches to the beat of his own drum. lol
We were so proud of him!

(he has slept with it every night since!)
He had a great check up and we will be back in March!
