Garrett went to the orthodontist today which he thought was his usual monthly tightening. Dr. Bailey looked at his teeth and said they looked awesome and proceeded to snip off the braces. It was a total surprise to us all (I guess he does it this way so the kids aren't disappointed if they're told they're coming off and they're not quite ready). Garrett was thrilled and his teeth are beautiful. He's had them on close to 3-1/2 years because he had to have his whole jaw move in the process and has worn a Herbst (sp?) appliance, headgear and a bizillion rubber bands. Congratulations Garrett! You look awesome!!!
