Cole had his first dentist appointment yesterday! He's had a Cole since Wednesday and we had to wake him from a nap, so he was not thrilled about going, but we kept telling him how much fun it would be and that he'd get something from the treasure box. By the time we got to the office, he was calm and he enjoyed reading the books in the waiting room. My appointment was at the same time so when I went in, DH let Cole sit on his lap to watch the beginning of my appointment. The hygienist was really good about explaining what she was doing, so when Cole went in for his appointment, he acted like an old pro. He put on the protective glasses and opened his mouth when asked. He chose cookie dough flavored toothpaste and just enjoyed the whole experience.
Of course, I don't think swallowing the toothpaste went over so well with his stomach because he threw up about 30 minutes later, but we were still very proud of him.
In the spring, he'll have his first appointment with the eye doctor. I'm hoping we can arrange to have him watch someone else's appointment first so I'll need to check with my family since both DH and I just recently went for our check ups already.
