We had another 6 month follow up today, this is like her 4th cleaning, not including TWO dental work visits. We live at the dentist it seems. She did SO well, I'm so proud of her, everytime we go I sit further and further away from her. Her first visit she was on my lap crying, the second on my lap and okay, the third visit I just held her hand her dad right there too, this visit we sat way across the room. Hope she don't kick us out next time, ha.

The assistant came out, called Tehya's name and she proudly followed the lady back her dad and I following behind, hopped right up into the chair all by herself. There was a kid on the other side of the wall, like 4 years older and this other girl was screaming and crying and not cooperating at all. It was so bad she even made ME nervous. I'm thinking great, Tehya is going to be traumatized just by listening to this other kid but it didn't phase her a bit. She had her mouth open before the lady was even ready, I don't think she closed it barely at all, even when she didn't have to she held it open. Then her cleaning was done and she told Tehya the dentist will be over to look in a minute so Tehya lays back down and taps her fingers on the armrest while she waited, it was cute.

Finally we left, I asked Tehya if she had fun and she enthusiastically says yes. Then randomly after we got home says to me, "the was a REALLY good doctor", lol. My big girl. Here I was expecting the worst and she was very well behaved, brave and independent. :)

Her teeth were pretty much okay, was just told to brush her gums a little better and her teeth that has had work are slightly lose so they will fall out early, in the next year or two probably.

Oxford Fair, September 9th 2010

This year was the first year I let Tehya go on any rides alone. Last year, and the year before too I think she was scared on even the Merry Go Round. The only ride she really has ever liked was the big slide, the jumping thing where she has to harness up, the climbing wall and bouncy houses. We went this year her my mom & I. We went initially to see the animals but we were a day too early because all we saw really were horses, cows & pigs. Tehya's favorites are the chickens and baby chicks but we couldn't find any. Not sure if they were there or not, not that we saw.

After watching the pig scramble (Tehya and my mom did, I find it mean and did something else) and looking at the cows and big horses we let her do a pony ride. This was her first time ever. She did really good and REALLY LOVED it.

This was that ride that looked liked Smoky kinda (?) and it spins when you turn the wheel in the center. My mom and I were on either side of her for this one. Quick snap before we started moving.

Her past favorite. Her & I going down. This slide always scares me! Ahhh. lol. Maybe next year she can go alone? ;P

Here she was digging for "dino" bones. She really really loved this too. She was here for a long time digging over & over even though she found the bones really quickly. She asked questions and was very much into it. They explained to her the bones she found and she listened intently. She definitly put them to work, she made sure they explained to her every one, haha.

Matching the bone to the chart, all her idea.


Asking for more information and loving it. She takes a bone and holds it to one of the guys waiting for a description.

Another ride..


Tehya and my mom. She was scared but liked it and wanted to go again. In fact, she wanted to go on EVERY ride again.

Going higher..

I said after she was almost stopped, "show me your scared face".

Listening to music. First she though it was too loud and ran off plugging her ears but she got used to it and then....

..started dancing. And dancing...and dancing.

Water break.

Prior to this ride she went through a bouncy house type thing.



A fun filled day for little miss Tehya, super tired after she got home.

Still really annoyed with blogger, I hit spell check, ALL my pictures error and I have to re-upload them all. At the end of the year when I start fresh I'm getting a new platform!
