Jason and I went to the dentist yesterday morning. We both had appointments at the same time, but for some reason brought Haven and left Venily with my mom. I don't know why, but I just can't bear to leave Haven. I've only left her with Jason twice ever, and the longest of those two times was 3 hours! She goes long periods of time between nursing so there is no reason why I couldn't leave her, but I just can't!
Haven was very good about 95% of the time! She waved and smiled at every single person she saw, so everyone was cracking up at her! There are a lot of things that Haven does that remind me so much of Venily, that is one of them! :) I took Haven with me at first and she sat in her umbrella stroller playing with toys for a while. Then she started crying and there wasn't much I could do since I was getting my teeth cleaned. I knew she was tired. Luckily Jason heard her from across the building and came in and took her. I couldn't hear her, so I was really nervous the rest of the time, but the dentist assistant would go and check on her and report back to me every so often, lol. I guess the dentist gave her a toothbrush and Jason said she spent the whole time with him happily brushing her teeth, haha! When I finished getting my teeth cleaned and looked at by the dentist (NO CAVITIES even though I haven't gotten a cleaning in like 2 years! Yay!), I took Haven back!
I spoke with the dental assistant about when I should have Venily in for her first cleaning. She said around 3-4 years old so I'm going to attempt to bring her in around her 3rd birthday for a cleaning! She knows about the dentist and what they do, so I'm hoping to keep talking to her about it for the next 6 months so she's not afraid, but I don't know! Especially if it's a guy, she's going to be really shy!
