Okay, so I didn't actually lie. What I said was getting a picture of Vada's new pearly white nub was not a battle worth fighting for because of her level of discomfort.
Turned out that she didn't quite mind me feeling around in her mouth.
Once I realized that I was in the clear I grabbed the camera and began trying to get a good picture. Unfortunately, what I did get isn't quite clear, but the little dot is visible enough to see there there is in fact a baby tooth peeking out.
Oh yeh, and it's not just this tooth bud that is showing. In the same area but on the opposite side there is another tooth popping through!
