first time at the dentist

Stella visited the dentist for the first time and did great. Ava was super excited to go [and get the prizes at the dentist], so she talked to Stella all about it to try and get her pumped. But that only made Stella not want to go.

Ava played with Stella in the waiting room and then went first to set a good example. When it was Stelly's turn she was perfectly lovely and cooperative. To the staff's amazement, she sat in the chair all by herself and did everything the dentist asked.

The dentist said the paci may be causing her overjet, so we are going to work on giving it up after the holidays.

She didn't have any cavities, so I guess our teeth brushing battles paid off! She surprised me once again with how capable she is at only 2 1/2.
