Braces

That is one beautiful boy I have there. Well maybe beautiful is not the right word for a boy. He is completely and totally handsome!!!!! This was his before shot of his teeth. He was sooo nervous about getting braces once he was in the seat. He just didn't know what to expect so I think that is why. I have never had braces so I didn't know what to tell him. What I did tell him was that the Lord knows and he can help you through it. He said that he was just fine after a few minutes and with a silent prayer. I had no idea that he wanted me to be with him when they did it so I had planned to run an errand and had the two youngest with me and couldn't possibly stay because of them. He did just fine!!!


I told him I wanted an after shot and this is what he gave me silly boy.
This was not the smile he had on his face after they were put on. He was in lot of pain. He didn't eat for a whole day. And for him at this stage is big for him. But he is now use to them and has been back for them to put a new wire in. He says his mouth hurt for a few hours and that was it. I know at least one other kid for sure that will have to have braces. But for now its just Aaron. His teeth weren't so much crooked but apparently he has a huge over bite or under bite or something like that. Anyway my boy is growing up. Sad but exciting at the same time.

I am sooo jealous of Carla's teeth. I remember her hurting with her's. Aaron, the pain will be worth your beautiful teeth! I will be jealous of your's too.

Brayden had the worst pain when he first had them put on. After that, getting them tightened leaves him sore for just a day or two. Yep, it's hard for them not to be able to eat at their regular pace! And the color-changing smile is exciting--right now Brayden's are BYU blue. GO COUGARS! Aaron looks great!

Awe, tell him i feel his pain! I don't think I ate for several days! They'll hurt every time he goes in. It's worth it though in the long run.

He is adorable! With or without braces :) I was so skinny when I had my braces. I only ate when I was absolutely starving because it was such a pain to brush and floss in between those stupid things every time!

He is handsome! My oldest is getting ready to get his off...we would do it all over in a heart beat. His whole face shape changed and the bite is so much better. Plus is will be done before dating begins. :)
