Toothy grin

I love this picture. For one reason in particular. Eli has kind of a crooked smile. A little backround: In the mouth there is something called the midline. It is an imaginary line between the two front teeth on top, and between the two front teeth on the bottom . It is supposed to line up, but you can see in the picture that when Eli smiles his jaw moves to the side so the bottom teeth are to the left of the top tooth, not directly below. Maybe it’s because I look at teeth all the time that I notice, or maybe I would notice anyway. But it’s adorable to me. (You can see it best if you click on the picture and make it larger.)

  1. Ahh what a cutey! I love it when Eli gets those big smiles. I must say Jo, I may never smile the same around you again knowing what you’re looking at:)
